The creation comes packed with ABS, Ducati Traction Control and a very interesting Ducati Riding Modes system that offers it a multiple personality (Sport, Touring and City modes available). The bike is powered by a 1,198cc Testastretta 11 degree engine that allows the rider to play with 162 hp at 9,500 rpm and a peak torque of 94 lb-ft (127.4 Nm) at 8,000 rpm.
The front suspension uses a fully adjustable 50mm Marzocchi fork, while the rear one comes with a horizontally mounted fully adjustable Sachs rear shock absorber. As for the stopping power, this is provided by a system that comes with a 320 mm rotor and Brembo monoblock calipers for the front wheel and a two-piston floating caliper for the rear one.
The Diavel tips the scales at 463 pounds/ 210 kg (dry weight), but the company also offers a carbon incarnation of the bike that uses forged Marchesini rims and certain carbon fiber components (tank panels, single-seat cover and front mudguard to cut the weight to 456 pounds (207 kg).
The two-wheeled creation follows the cruiser trend in terms of seating, offering the rider a low seating position, while the fuel tank has a capacity of 4.5 gallons (17 liters). Other features include a 240 section rear tire, a Ride by Wire system, multifunctional LEDs for the rear lighting and an minimalist set-up for the controls.
