2015 Ducati Diavel to hit UK showrooms by April this year
Ducati's 2015 Diavel sport cruiser will be on sale in the UK by early April 2014. The cruiser will be offered in two variants; Diavel and Diavel Carbon. The standard Diavel is available at 13,995 pounds (Rs 13,94,927) and the Carbon variant is priced at 16,995 pounds (Rs 16,93,947). The mentioned prices are ex-showroom UK.
The Diavel combines state of the art technology with an innovative, sleek design that lends it a unique appearance. Despite the bulky look, the motorcycle weighs in at a light 210kgs and is built for agility and comfort. New exhaust system, radiator covers, bar risers with full LED lamps and better seats sum up the overall look. The handling is massively helped by the use of Ducati chassis technology and big 240/45 ZR17 Pirelli rear tyre. The riding experience is further enhanced by systems such as Ducati Traction Control and ABS. A selection of riding modes allows you to have a bike for every mood.
The engine powering the Diavel is the 1198cc, liquid cooled, Testastretta 11°, L-Twin cylinder DS which produces 164PS. Braking is handled by two 320mm discs with a 4-piston caliper at the front and a lone 265mm disc with a 2-piston caliper at the back.

As previously mentioned, the Diavel is also offered in a Carbon version which gives customers choice of two colours and a weight reduction of 5kg. Carbon fibre has been used for the front mudguard, tank panels and single seat covers. Colour options include a red frame with the body done in red carbon and a white frame with a 'star white body'. The Marchesini forged wheels are dressed up in black and the exhaust is finished in stainless steel silver.
THE NEW DUCATI DIAVEL - MAKE A BOLD STATEMENT
|Ducati's latest Diavel introduces many new features to the highly awarded sport cruiser, including a new engine and exhaust system and styling refinements that combine the model's muscular and assertive look with an elegance and sophistication now synonymous with the premium Italian brand. The new Diavel now makes a bold statement and strengthens Ducati's Performance Redefined mantra by using latest technologies to produce super-smooth performance with enhanced comfort and usability. Custom shop beauty, state-of-the-art technology, innovative design and extraordinary riding pleasure remain masterfully blended into the Diavel, a motorcycle that has firmly set a benchmark in the sport cruiser segment, just reward for the innovative designers and engineers that created it. Built to have a commanding presence, though lightweight and agile like all Ducatis, the Diavel takes the man-motorcycle relationship to another level in absolute comfort. For connoisseurs of technology, the latest generation Testastretta 11° Dual Spark engine combines with full LED illumination, ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes to deliver a confidence-inspiring superiority, while new styling, 162hp and 205kg* (452lb) of pure Ducati drives a comfortable sport lifestyle previously only dreamt of. Merging the worlds of power and style is now achieved with convincing precision. A specially engineered 240 section rear tyre combined with Ducati chassis technology serves up mind-blowing handling and lean angles which defy the laws of physics, whether carving through curves on your favourite road or simply cruising the boulevards. With its laid-back street ergonomics, blistering performance and commanding style, the new Diavel now rolls out dressed in stylish Dark Stealth livery, a black trellis frame and black wheels. The Diavel Carbon offers the choice of traditional Ducati Red over Matte Carbon with red frame or the stunning new Star White over Matte Carbon with white frame, both with black, forged wheels by Marchesini, turned and milled to expose the natural aluminium. *Diavel Carbon version 2015 Diavel new features overview All Diavel models New Testastretta 11° DS engine New exhausts system Full LED illumination New headlamp cover and mounting New bar-risers New radiator covers New seat New fuel gauge and side-stand TFT instrumentation icons Diavel Body: Dark Stealth Frame: Black Wheels: Black Silencers: Black Diavel Carbon Colour 1: Body: "red carbon" (gloss red over matte carbon weave) Frame: Ducati red Colour 2: Body: Star White (white over matte carbon weave) Frame: Ducati white Wheels: Black.
