Production started year: 2019
In 2019, Ducati launched the Diavel 1260, presented at the 2018 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, and was available in standard and S versions. The base Diavel 1260 was offered only in Black, and the S version was available only in red with white graphics. Among other updates, the new 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260 was fitted with a new exhaust system and had a 160 cm (63 inches) wheelbase, and it uses the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine.
The 2019 Diavel 1260 has at its heart the 1262cc L-Twin liquid-cooled engine matted with a six-speed gearbox delivering to the rear wheel the power of 159 hp at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm (95 lb-ft) of torque at 7,500 rpm. The gases escape through stainless steel pipes and a single muffler with twin tail pipes.
On the tubular steel Trellis frame, the bike features a 50 mm adjustable USD fork on the front, an adjustable monoshock on the rear, and a cast aluminum single-sided swingarm.
In the braking department, the 2019 model uses two 320 mm Brembo discs with four-piston M4.32 calipers on the front and a single 265 mm disc with a two-piston Brembo floating caliper on the rear.
The 17-inch wheels were made of light alloy in a 14-spoke design and shod with a pair of Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 tires.
