2016 Ducati Diavel Carbon

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.
