Ducati Diavel Carbon For Sale
What Is It?
The Ducati Diavel Carbon 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 but de-tuned for loads of low down torque rather than top end power.

Over the standard Diavel you get black finish DLC coated fork sliders, 2.5 kg lighter 9-spoke Marchesini forged wheels and a few Carbon Fibre bits to shave a total of 3 kg off the weight. The Carbon bits include the pillion seat cover, tank covers and front mudguard.
The Diavel features a few nifty tricks like the forged Aluminium fold out pillion pegs, 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.
