Production started year: 2019
The Ducati Diavel 1260 S was presented at the 2018 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan and released in 2019 along with the standard version. The “S” stands for a sportier version than the standard model, which features Ohlins suspension rather than no-name units like the base version. It also adds clutchless shifting (bi-directional quickshifter), Brembo M50 monoblock front brake calipers, LED headlight with DRL, machine-finished wheels, and an S Seat.
The 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260 S takes its power from the 1262cc Testastretta DVT liquid-cooled engine and sends it to the rear wheel through a six-speed DQS manual transmission boasting 159 hp at 9.500 rpm and 129 Nm (95 lb-ft) of torque at 7.500 rpm.
The model uses the Ohlins suspension with an adjustable USD fork with Tin treatment on the front, a fully adjustable monoshock on the rear, and a cast aluminum single-sided swingarm.
In the braking department, the model uses Brembo M50 calipers pressing on two 320 mm discs on the front and a single 265 mm disc on the rear.
A massive impact on the rider could be the wise use of the three riding modes, Sport, Touring, and Urban, where Touring is the most selectable option, but to fill the true power of the Diavel 1260 S Sport mode is the perfect mode.
