My dream motorcycle
A massive 240 section rear tyre is the perfect example of how Diavel designers used a no-compromise attitude when applying their wish list of features. The sheer width of rubber communicates so much power and style that the R&D team vowed to find, and succeeded in finding, a way to make it handle - even if they knew the image would send a seismic shock through the industry.
This is my dream motorcycle. The 2015 Ducati Diavel is known to be used in the recordings of the show The Arrow.
With its 162hp and 96lb-ft of torque, the Diavel engine defines authentic Ducati performance.
Thanks to dual spark plugs, high-compression pistons, and revised injection spray targeting, the engine's torque curve is strong and smooth at low rpm, which allows a smooth cruising ride but also works the same way through a wide rev-range.
The oversized exhaust pipes are part of a system which have been designed to maximise power and improve the efficiency of the Diavel. The system is equipped with a lambda probe for each individual cylinder, in order for the fuel injection to be optimised and managed autonomously via the large airbox. The vertically stacked cannon silencers are equipped with catalytic converters that ensure compliance with Euro 3 standards, while the electronically controlled adjustment valve optimises exhaust pressure. The exhaust system is enhanced by the manifolds, treated with black ceramic Zircotec, and the silencers, with a brushed steel outer cover.
