Powerful. Muscular. But also agile and effective between the curves for maximum riding enjoyment. The new Diavel 1260 combines the performance of a maxi-naked with the ergonomics of a muscle cruiser. Its design reinterprets the Diavel style with a contemporary look and integrates perfectly the 159 HP Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, beating heart of this new Diavel 1260.
For the Model Year 2020, the colour range of the Diavel 1260 has been updated. The standard version is now available in total black: the Dark Stealth colouring includes matt black for the superstructures, which is combined with rims, frame and mechanical parts also in black with different finishes.
The S version, on the other hand, is available in Ducati red with white graphics, alternating with black parts, giving the Diavel 1260 a new sportiness, without sacrificing the style that distinguishes this model.
Unconventional, unique, unmistakeable. As soon as it was launched at EICMA 2010, the Diavel stunned with its personality, design, sport naked handling and thoroughbred engine.
The second-generation Diavel 1260 remains faithful to the original spirit of that incredibly special bike, drawing on its key styling elements yet bringing them decidedly up to date.
Now, the Diavel has more assertive outlines and higher performance, is more fun on mixed-road routes and even more comfortable, for rider and passenger alike. Its sport naked soul is magnified by a Testastretta DVT 1262 engine that combines breath-taking acceleration with the smooth low-rev power delivery that is ideal for everyday rides or longer-lasting tours. An upgraded chassis set-up makes the Diavel 1260 more responsive on mixed-road routes while high grade technology and electronics provide braking performance on a par with that of a sport bike (and does so safely, thanks to Bosch Cornering ABS) and user-friendly engine performance control. Comfort levels for rider and passenger remain outstanding thanks to, first and foremost, an upright riding position and a large, generously padded seat.
A sportier S version of the Diavel 1260 is also available. Features include fully adjustable Öhlins suspension at both front and rear, dedicated wheels and an even higher-performance braking system.
The beating heart of the Diavel 1260 is the 1262 cm3 Ducati Testastretta DVT engine with variable cam timing. Already widely appreciated on the XDiavel, it has now been upgraded to optimise performance and equipped with chain-type final transmission. This engine also provides a clean, classy side view with a quality finish, establishing it as the core of the bike also from a style standpoint. The twin-cylinder Diavel 1260 puts out 159 hp (117 kW) at 9,500 rpm* and 129 Nm (13.1 kgm) at 7,500 rpm, delivering steady pulling power right from the low-medium rev range to ensure a robust engine response as and when needed. Thanks to a variable timing system which acts continuously on the intake and exhaust camshafts, the engine adjusts power delivery to suit riding conditions: extremely smooth at low revs, assertively sporty at high revs.
Moreover, the S version mounts Ducati Quick Shift up & down Evo (DQS) as standard to allow clutchless shifting.
The riding position and ‘power cruiser’ ergonomics so popular with first-generation diavelisti remain unchanged. What has changed is the chassis set-up. The Diavel sports a prominent tubular steel Trellis frame. Anchored to it is an aluminium swingarm, sized to give surprising cornering agility, superb ‘feel’ and easy riding. The rear wheel – 240 mm wide with a diameter of 17 inches – remains a Diavel hallmark and, together with the chassis set-up, merges excellent handling and lean angles with outstanding comfort levels.
Sophisticated electronics guarantees both extraordinary performance and maximum safety. The 6-axis Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) instantaneously detects bike speed and acceleration and is crucial to the proper operation of many of the control devices on the Diavel 1260. The electronics package includes Bosch Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, Ducati Power Launch (DPL) EVO and Cruise Control.
For the Model Year 2020, the colour range of the Diavel 1260 has been updated. The standard version is now available in total black: the Dark Stealth colouring includes matt black for the superstructures, which is combined with rims, frame and mechanical parts also in black with different finishes. The S version, on the other hand, is available in Ducati red with white graphics, alternating with black parts, giving the Diavel 1260 a new aggressiveness and sportiness, without sacrificing the style that distinguishes this model.
This Diavel 1260 is also compatible with the Ducati Link App: this lets riders set ‘journey mode’ (a combination of Load Mode and Riding Mode) and personalise the parameters of each individual Riding Mode (ABS, Ducati Traction Control, etc.) in a user-friendly manner via their smartphones. This versatile App also provides comprehensive maintenance deadline info, a user manual and a Ducati Store locator. Furthermore, the Ducati Link App lets riders record performance and routes so they can share their Diavel experiences with the Ducatisti community that already uses the App.
