Highlighting what the company claims to be “the new shape of power and style,” is the new picture gallery that has just been released by the Italian manufacturer, and which can be seen below this article.
“Custom shop beauty, state-of-the-art technology, innovative design and extraordinary riding pleasure are masterfully blended into the Diavel, a motorcycle destined to shape the future, a motorcycle built by people who have earned the right to change the rules,” Ducati brags in a company statement.
“The stance of the Diavel is that of readiness, dominance, and confidence bordering on superiority. With lateral radiators adding muscle to its broad “shoulders,” which then taper down across the engine and into the belly-fairing with oil cooler, the athlete took shape,” the statement continues.
