Take the standard Ducati Diavel and add some functional and visual enhancements, and you have the Diavel Carbon. To make the Diavel Carbon, Ducati added forged, turned, and milled Marchesini wheels and stainless steel silencers, along with carbon fiber for the tank cover, rear seat cover, and front fender.The result is a bike that is 11 pounds lighter than the standard Diavel, and is still powered by the 162 horsepower Testastretta 11° L-twin that also puts out 96 ft/lbs of torque. Red Carbon and Star White are colors exclusive to the Diavel Carbon, which also has Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires, Marzocchi forks, and Brembo Monoblock front calipers. The Ducati Safety Pactk(ABS and traction control) is standard.
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
