In 2010 at the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Ducati unveiled the Diavel, a naked cruiser motorcycle. In 2011 the Diavel was produced and available in two non-limited variants. They were the Dark, which was the standard model, and the Carbon, which featured Marchesini wheels, a carbon front mudguard, carbon tank, carbon seat cowling, and a coated front suspension.

In 2013, Ducati released a new motorcycle called Diavel Dark, which was an all-black, sporty, and aggressive-looking bike that took all its guts from the base model.

The bike blends in with the night's darkness and takes its power from the 1198 cc Testastretta Desmodromic liquid-cooled engine bolted to a six-speed gearbox and developing a whooping power of 162 hp at 9,250 rpm and 130 Nm (96 lb-ft) of torque at 8,000 rpm.

The Diavel Dark uses the Ducati Trellis frame and die-cast aluminum sections that flow into the rear subframe creating a massive torsional rigidity while remaining lightweight and compact. The weight of the 2013 Ducati Diavel Dark is 210 kg (463 lbs).

The front suspension has a Marzocchi 50 mm fully adjustable USD fork, and on the rear there is a progressive linkage with a fully adjustable monoshock.

In terms of braking, the Dark has two 320 mm semi-floating discs on the front and a 265 mm disc, two-piston floating caliper on the rear.
