The first motorcycle left the assembly line on Monday, January 21, and, by tradition, was greeted by the whole factory with a toast and the official speech of the general director Claudio Domenicali and production manager Silvano Feeney.

The new power cruiser Diavel 1260, in addition to the fresh design with the XDiavel style headlight, has received the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, which, thanks to its exciting acceleration and smooth operation at low revs, is ideal for daily trips and longer tours. The new chassis settings make the Diavel 1260 agile, and the electronics and braking systems with Bosch Cornering ABS are user friendly and safe.

The level of comfort for the pilot and passenger remains unsurpassed due to the vertical fit, a large soft seat and another distinctive feature of the Diavel, a 17-inch rear wheel with a 240 mm wide tire.

From mid-February, the motorcycle will appear in Ducati’s European dealerships, ready, according to the manufacturer, to play a key role in the 2019 motorcycle season.

The Diavel 1260 will also be available in the sports version of the S with the first-class Ohlins suspension, special wheels, an even more efficient braking system and the Ducati Quick Shift up & down Evo brand quickshift.
