Ducati Diavel is a cruiser motorcycle presented by Ducati at the 2010 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan. The first generation of the Diavel was the original design, featuring a round headlight with LED DRL down the center in a horizontal line. The bike was made in two versions, Dark as standard, and Carbon with fancier features, meant to appeal to more customers and draw then in closer to the brand.

In 2013 Ducati released a new model of the range, powered by a 1198cc Testastretta L-Twin liquid-cooled engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, and boasting power levels of 162 hp at 9.250 rpm and 130 Nm (96 lb-ft) of torque at 8,000 rpm.

In the suspension department, the model comes with Marzocchi 50 mm fully adjustable USD forks on the front and a progressive linkage with a fully adjustable monoshock on the rear. For braking, it uses two 320 mm semi-floating discs on the front and a 265 mm disc on the back.

In terms of technologies, the 2013 Ducati Diavel has ride-by-wire, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), ABS as standard equipment, and three selectable riding modes: Sport, Touring, and Urban.

The bike came with a choice of colors between Mettalic Blue and Ducati Red, stylish white stripes, white wheels, and a color-matched Trellis frame.
