Ducati Diavel: Now in Diamond Black

2011 Ducati Diavel

In response to feedback from motorcycle show visitors, Ducati is pleased to announce the addition of a stunning diamond black color scheme for the new 2011 Diavel.

With the Diavel receiving consumer attention at motorcycle shows around the globe, Ducati collected feedback from passionate motorcyclists viewing the bike for the first time.

The new diamond black color option is the result of immediate response to customer demand.

While the Diavel Carbon was overwhelmingly loved alongside the motorcycle in traditional Ducati Red, the black livery replaces the originally presented white offering.

The new black scheme will also be further enhanced with a black anodized headlamp body and lateral air intakes.

The new black diamond color has already been incorporated into production plans and will be available alongside the entire Diavel range this February at authorized Ducati dealerships.

The innovative new 2011 Diavel combines decades of twin-cylinder heritage and Italian style with a bold, world-beating technical confidence strong enough to extend the boundaries of motorcycle design.

For connoisseurs of technology, ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes deliver technical sophistication to a motorcycle that is packed with 162hp of authentic superbike-like performance while weighting in at only 207kg (456 lbs.).

A specially engineered 240 section rear tire combined with famous Ducati chassis technology serves up the handling and lean angles which defy the laws of Harley-Davidson physics.

The latest ground-breaking Ducati is available in two versions: The Diavel and the flagship Diavel Carbon with a character-forming mix of aesthetic and performance components from carbon fiber bodywork to forged and specially machined Marchesini wheels.
