2022 Ducati Diavel 1260 S Black and Steel First Look

Back in 2019, Ducati revealed Materico, a Ducati Diavel 1260 variant, at the Beautiful Boldness / Visionary Design event at Milan Design Week. The Diavel Materico went on display at the prestigious MOARD show in Milan. Beginning in September, you can get the 2022 Ducati Diavel 1260 S Black and Steel, which is inspired by the remarkable Materico.

Although the name is Black and Steel, yellow is the operative color on this latest iteration of the Ducati Diavel 1260 S. The frame and lower part of the tail are attention-demanding yellow, and they are accented with an off-center yellow line down the fuel tank’s top and a broad yellow stripe across each wheel. You’ll also find yellow on the chin fairing, a slot on the seat, and the name Diavel on the tank. Otherwise, there’s plenty of black-and-silver to provide a touch of menace to the proceedings.

“The Diavel 1260 S Black and Steel is a bike that does not go unnoticed,” notes Ducati Design Center Director Andrea Ferraresi. “Its asymmetrical graphics, the contrast between matte black, grey, and touches of yellow have been designed to enhance the power, design, and sportiness of this bike.”

Otherwise, the motorcycle is the same Diavel 1260 S that we know, love, and have tested. That standard version of the 1260 will be Dark Stealth, with a 1260 S in Black & Dark Stealth also available.
