The name "Diavel" was inspired by the Bolognese dialect word for "devil". The new 2011 Ducati Diavel combines decades of twin-cylinder superbike heritage and Italian style with a bold statement that pushes the boundaries of motorcycle design.

Custom bike looks, state-of-the-art technology and innovative design are blended into the Diavel, a motorcycle with a shape of the future.

Built to have a commanding presence, though lightweight and agile like all Ducatis, the Diavel is for connoisseurs of technology and power; ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes deliver 162 hp and 207 kg (456 lbs.) of authentic Ducati performance.

Merging the worlds of power and style includes a specially engineered 240-section rear tire combined with Ducati’s Superbike chassis technology that still allows for a decent canyon-carving tool that’s also a spectacular power-cruiser for Main Street.

This latest avant-garde motorcycle is available in two versions: The brand new Diavel and the flagship Diavel Carbon with a character-defining mix of aesthetic and performance parts that range from carbon fiber bodywork down to the forged Marchesini wheels.

Reminiscent of how the Ducati Monster was named almost 20 years ago, the Diavel hopes to follow the same Bologna tradition of shaping the future of motorcycling while staying faithful to its heritage.
