2015 Ducati Diavel Photos

Ducati ventured into relatively new territory in 2011, taking on the power-cruiser market with its newest creation, the Diavel. This wasn’t Ducati’s first attempt at a cruiser, though; that came under Caviga ownership with the Indiana from 1986-1990. Unfortunately for Ducati, the bike didn’t garner much popularity.

The same can’t be said of the Diavel.

Originally known as Project 0803, the Diavel, which is local Borgo Panigale dialect for “devil,” pronounced dee-ah-vel, expanded Ducati’s reach into a market ruled by such creations as the Yamaha V-Max and the Harley-Davidson V-Rod.

But the Diavel offered more than just a straight-line cruiser; the chassis retained Ducati’s need for handling, and with 162 horsepower on tap from its 1198.4cc Testastretta engine, the bike was no slouch.

Besides offering the Diavel in various editions, nothing changed much since the launch of that original 2011 Diavel. This changes for 2015, and the Diavel arrives with latest version of the Testastretta 11-degree DS (Dual Spark) engine, which also powers the Multistrada and Monster 1200.

The 2015 model – again available in a Carbon edition – also receives a new exhaust system, and some styling updates, such as the LED headlight.
