2011 Ducati Diavel | Quick Look

2011 Ducati Motorcycle

Do the words Ducati and cruiser belong on the same page, let alone in the same sentence? It does with the release of the Diavel-Bolognese for “devil.”

Power is the calling card for this subterranean dweller, thanks to the tapping of the superbike-derived Testastretta 11° motor that dishes out a claimed 162 horsepower and 94 ft/lbs of torque.

Not a low rpm grunter, the Diavel is ready to rev through headers that measure over two inches in diameter.

A 240mm-rear tire and slipper-style clutch are an odd combination that just might work.
