2016 Ducati XDiavel

The new Ducati XDiavel has a focus on low-rpm torque, with 95 ft/lbs of pulling power arriving at just 5000 rpm. Producing this power is the new Testastretta DVT 1262 L-twin, which features Desmodromic Variable Timing to give it plenty of power across a wide rev range.

With longer rake, the XDiavel offers a more relaxed ride than the original Diavel, plus the ergonomics can be personalized with four footpeg positions, five choices of seats, and three different handlebar bends.

The XDiavel still says performance via its Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires and high-end Brembo Monoblock front calipers. The Ducati Safety Pack is standard (Bosch cornering ABS, traction control), plus cruise control and the first belt-drive on a Ducati.
