Over the standard Diavel you get black finish DLC coated fork sliders, 2.5kg lighter 9-spoke Marchesini forged wheels and a few Carbon Fibre bits to shave a total of 3kg 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. The mirrors and air intakes are also forged Aluminium.
There are three ride modes to choose from. 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 while Urban drops power to 100bhp with DTC level 5. The DTC level can be fine-tuned within each mode using the dash.
The 14-spoke cast alloy 17" wheels take a Pirelli Diablo Rosso II 120/70 tyre at the front and a huge 240/45 at the rear.
