The standard version comes with two new nifty liveries in blue and red, with large, classic racing stripes adorning the massive tank and the tail section and adding a bit of old-school racing looks to the otherwise, "brutally" contemporary machine.

All 4 Diavel versions are powered by the Corse-derived Testastretta 11° v-twin which is good for 162 hp and 94lb-ft (127.5Nm) of torque, mated to a precise and sharp ride by wire throttle system.

The slipper clutch is a great feature as it offers a self-servo action when accelerating which allows a lighter clutch for the same plate pressure, and which also reduces the destablizing effect during hard engine brakes.

While the Diavel dark is a bike for those in search for an all-blacked-out beast, the Carbon version shaves off some weight thanks to the multiple carbon fiber bodywork parts.

Truly sweet to see Ducati maintaining the Strada trim, a nifty set of optional accessories which transform the 2014 Diavel into a more touring-worthy muscle bike. This includes heated grips, fixed pillion rider footpegs, luggage system with integrated grab rails and a dedicated backrest for the passenger.

Diavel Strada riders will enjoy the new and broader windscreen which blends into the bike's lines. The riding position ergonomics have also changed: the new 2014 Diavel Strada comes with a touring seat, while the bars have been raised by 15mm and moved back by 60mm. Add in traction control, ABS, 12V outlets and many more.

Prices will be announced soon. Press release below.
