Ducati renews the XDiavel range by introducing two new versions for 2021: XDiavel Dark and XDiavel Black Star.

XDiavel is a cruiser with Ducati genes; the result of the contamination between two apparently distant universes. The relaxed pace at low speed typical of the Cruiser world and the adrenaline of Ducati's own sporty driving both find space in this elegant, technological and fun bike.

La Motorcycle House of Borgo Panigale has a bond with matte black of over twenty years that began in 1998 with the Monster 600 Dark, the first model to wear this livery. On XDiavel Dark the total black livery has also been extended to the mechanics, plates and finishes, enhancing the Ducati “Reduce to the Max” design principle. The XDiavel Dark represents purity, essentiality and the gateway to the XDiavel world.

The new version XDiavel Black Star instead, it shows enthusiasts the sporty side of the Ducati cruiser, with a livery and equipment inspired by the world of sports cars. The dedicated livery alternates opaque gray and black with inevitable touches of red. The cuts of color are clear and intersect, taking up the concept of the X that characterizes the family.

On this motorcycle no detail has been overlooked: the red engine head covers are a reminder of the 100% Ducati soul, and the saddle, enriched with a high-grip suede fabric, recalls the sportiness of the brand.

The characterizing element of the XDiavel Black Star are the forged rims, entirely machined and painted in glossy black, which enhance the aesthetics of the bike and lighten it, resulting in a saving of over 2 kg. At the front, the wheel rim is 3,5 ”x 17 '', while at the rear there is an 8” x 17 '' rim. The front rim is fitted with a traditional 120/70 ZR17 tire with a redesigned tread pattern to maximize performance in the wet, while the rear tire is 240/45 ZR17. The covers are the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III.

On both new versions and on the entire 2021 range, the twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 becomes Euro 5 compliant in all countries that adopt the standard. To comply with the new European emissions standard, an updated silencer layout has been adopted, a new design, derived from the Diavel 1260 and a new engine calibration. In this way, the XDiavel now delivers a maximum power of 160 HP at 9.500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13,0 kgm at 5.000 rpm with an increase, compared to the Euro 4 version, of 8 HP and 0,2, XNUMX kgm.

Like all the latest generation Ducatis, the XDiavel is also equipped with theInertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Bosch which, by dynamically measuring the roll and pitch angles as well as the speed of the relative attitude variations, provides the information to theBosch Cornering ABS, allowing to raise the standards of performance and safety. This system, together with the Ducati Traction Control (DTC), i Riding Mode, Cruise Control and Ducati Power Launch (DPL) make the XDiavel a technologically advanced, performing and, above all, safe motorcycle.

XDiavel is the result of the contamination between two apparently different and distant universes, united in a single motion. A synthesis in which both are found in a complete way, without compromise. The X of XDiavel represents precisely this intersection, which sees on the one hand the relaxed low-speed pace typical of the Cruiser world and on the other the excitement and adrenaline of Ducati's sporty driving.
