Ducati’s engineers wanted to develop a bike that’s able to offer first class performances but is also comfortable, good looking and practical. The result is Ducati Diavel, a motorcycle that’s able to do reward you a thrilling riding experience without sacrificing comfort and practicality.
“The challenge of building a muscular silhouette over a pure-bred competition motor had to be met with determination and a delicate touch, and the result is a frontal area that looks like a power athlete on the starting blocks,” explains the team at Ducati Design responsible for the project. “With the front wheel kept close to the Diavel’s body and using the short tail of a sport bike, we were able to blend this muscular design with a chassis that matched.”
The bike’s chassis uses a black-bodied 50mm Marzocchi front forks which are fully adjustable for spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping. Out back you’ll find the die-cast aluminum, single-sided swingarm.
