Ducati Diavel For Sale
What Is It?
The Ducati Diavel is a premium modern cruiser style bike and is powered by a Euro 3 compliant liquid cooled 1,198.4 cc V-Twin Testastretta engine, producing 159.6 bhp at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque at 8,000 rpm. It's the engine from the 1198 Superbike de-tuned for loads of low down torque rather than top end power.

- 265 mm disc at the rear with two piston caliper

The Diavel features a few nifty tricks like the forged Aluminium fold out pillion pegs / mirrors / air intakes, slide out grab rail and dual side radiators to keep the lines tidy.
There are three ride modes to choose from and the DTC level can be fine-tuned within each mode using the dash:
- Sport gives you all the power with an aggressive throttle response and level 3 DTC.
- Touring tones down the throttle response and raises DTC to level 4.
- Urban drops power to 100 bhp with DTC level 5.
The 14-spoke 17" wheels take a Pirelli Diablo Rosso II 120/70 tyre at the front and a huge 240/45 at the rear.
