Ducati presented the XDiavel at the 73rd edition of EICMA. The XDiavel concept is powered by a twin-cylinder 156 hp Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 engine achieves maximum torque of 129 Nm @ 5000rpm. Power to the rear wheels is transmitted via belt-drive.
THE BIKE BY NUMBERS
5.000, 60, 40. Three numbers that sum up the XDiavel concept. 5000, the number of revs at which the engine supplies maximum torque; 60, the number of ergonomic riding position configurations; 40, the maximum lean angle in degrees.
The XDiavel also gets a much more cruisy ride position – well, 60 ride positions to be precise, because there’s four different footrest positions, five different seats and three different handlebars to choose from to suit the looks and ergonomics of each rider.
The motorcycle features Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), together with Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Riding Modes, Bosch ABS Cornering, Cruise Control and the innovative Ducati Power Launch (DPL) system make the XDiavel a technological gem offering high performance and safety. An S version of the XDiavel is also available.
The XDiavel shown in Milan premiere was the S version, with black alloy wheels and plenty of customization options. Stay tuned for an official release date and pricing.
