2015 Ducati Diavel Dark StealthDont call me a cruiser
The intoxicating design, with innovative LED headlight, and refined rider comfort of the new Diavel may imply cruiser, but the brute force of its 162 hp Testastretta engine and its razor sharp handling prove otherwise.
Features May Include:Twin lateral radiators
To keep the frontal lines of the Diavel clean, the technical solution of a highly efficient lateral radiator is placed on each side of the bike. These well-ducted units, located beneath the fuel tank, use aerodynamics to help draw cooling air flow through them and are assisted by high-flow electric fans when required. Their shape integrates seamlessly with the overall design, combining form and function to enhance the muscular presence of the bike.Exhaust system
The massive 58mm (2.28in) section exhaust headers lead the 2-1-2 system through power-enhancing equal length pipes that enable the Diavels efficient power delivery. The engine management system dedicates a lambda probe to each header, providing precise fueling via a large airbox, while the new slash-cut vertically stacked exhaust silencers carry catalytic converters to provide Euro 3 conformity and feature an electronically controlled mid-section valve to optimise exhaust pressures throughout the rev-range.Power and Torque
With its 162hp and colossal 96lb-ft of torque, the Diavel Testastretta 11° DS engine defines authentic Ducati Desmodromic performance. Thanks to dual spark plugs, high-compression pistons, and revised injection spray targeting, the engines torque curve is strong and smooth at low rpm, and remains so through a wide rev-range. The engine output is managed by Ducatis Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system to ensure effortless ridability, with plenty of power on tap also for high-rpm riding.Ergonomics
The redesigned, more comfortable seat offers more room and has a low height of 770 mm, which allows for extended hours of riding pleasure and makes the Diavel accessible to a wide range of riders. A relaxed handlebar position sits naturally in the riders reach, ensuring full control and comfort with the unmatched coolness of cruiser style.Marzocchi forks with low-friction fork legs
The Diavel uses 50 mm Marzocchi front forks with fork legs finished in low-friction diamond-like carbon (DLC). These forks are fully adjustable for spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping.
The forks are equipped with slash-cut triple-clamps - the bottom yoke in die-cast aluminium and the upper in forged aluminium - with a rubber-mounted tapered alloy handlebar clamp. With a 28° steering rake, 130 mm trail and 24 mm offset, this set-up provides a sure-footed yet agile front end for incredible handling.Fuel tank and air intakes
The Diavels 17l (4.5 gal US) fuel tank represents an integral part of the bikes overall styling. Its wide, long lines sweep down from the headlamp assembly into the seat and rear sub-frame to create a seamless profile. While the focal point of the tank is the high resolution display panel, the steel tank skin and well-sculpted knee panels add a solid feel to the Diavel and a high tech composite look to the Diavel Carbon. On each side of the front of the tank are massive air intakes formed in aluminium to feed the engines large airbox.
