Ducati Diavel 2011

Ducati Diavel
Last year Ducati smacked us with an adventure-touring surprise in the form of the oddball Multistrada, which we’ve since tested and loved several times. For 2011, Ducati further expands its customer base with the Diavel, a weird new roadster built within the power-cruiser idiom.

Ducati DiavelDespite the cruiser analogies, those at Ducati who have ridden the Diavel say it doesn’t really share any cruiser qualities. They promise a level of handling far beyond anything with a cruiser label, including a respectable 41-degree lean angle. And with a retuned version of the strong 1200cc V-Twin from the Multistrada, expectations are for a unique and stimulating ride.
“Let's see,” Pete muses. “A motorcycle with a claimed 162 hp and 94 ft-lbs joined by ABS, traction control, rider-selectable engine mapping, a slipper clutch and a monstrous 240mm rear tire from Pirelli. I like most cruisers, but I think I'll like Ducati's interpretation of a cruiser even more.”
Diavel prices start at $16,995 when they hit dealers around March, 2011.
