The Ducati Diavel Motorcycle 2011 was unveiled in Milan today at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show running November 2-7. It will be available in the Diavel and Diavel Carbon versions, and enriched with lightweight composites and milled aluminum components. The Ducati Diavel features a Testastretta 11-degree engine that churns out 162 horsepower, a dry weight of 456 lbs. and the latest in Ducati technology: ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes.
"The Diavel project was born when Ducati designers applied their wish-list of bike "basic instincts" to a blank canvas. With a "what if?" approach to creating a dream bike, they sketched inspiring shapes which became a lower and longer motorcycle. "The challenge of building a muscular silhouette over a pure-bred competition motor had to be met with determination and a delicate touch, and the result is a frontal area that looks like a power athlete on the starting blocks," explains the team at Ducati Design responsible for the project."
