2016 Ducati XDiavel S

Not only does the new Ducati XDiavel S get all the features of the standard XDiavel, including the new 156 horsepower Testastretta DVT 1262 motor that puts out 95 ft/lbs of torque at 5000 rpm, but it also get daytime running lights, DLC coating for the forks, upgraded Brembo M50 front calipers, a special seat, and machine-finishing on select parts for a premium appearance.

The gloss black paint lets people know that you opted for the high-end XDiavel S. If you’re interested in going fast in the canyons, the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires will make sure the XDiavel S stays stuck to the road. Adjustable pegs and your choice of seats and bars gives you the opportunity to fine-tune the XDiavel S ergonomics to your liking.
