The diabolical Ducati Diavel Diesel was first showed at the Milan Men’s Fashion Week, 2017. Although, we had our doubts about the Diavel Diesel launching in India, we are happy to have been proven wrong by Ducati India. The bike was a result of teamwork between the Andrea Rosso and Ducati Design Centre, Diesel Licensing Creative Director. This isn’t the first time that these two Italian giants have cooperated. Earlier in 2012, these 2 companies had come together to create the Ducati Monster Diesel, which was a great looking motorbike too. Diesel will also launch a limited special edition collection of Ducati Diesel merchandise across the globe in the summers.
The motivation for the Diavel Diesel would be the hyper kinetic dynamism of the post-apocalyptic future and hence, the brownish hue with that raw, worn out look with the rivets being clearly visible add to the devilish streak of the Diavel, as if it desirable something like that. The level of detailing is fantastic on the fuel tank, leather seat and the front cowl.
The Brembo brake callipers up front, the LCD tool console and the chain links look super cool and somehow up the style quotient on the Diavel, which is difficult to trust. The exhaust pipes get a coating of black Zircotec ceramic with billeted ends add to the overall muscle as well. The Diavel Diesel continues to get the 1198 cc L-Twin motor which makes a solid 160 BHP and 130.5 Nm of peak torque. The other features stay the same as well. “A good amalgamation of Ducati’s signature design, safety and performance and Diesel’s craftsmanship and style, the Diavel Diesel is unique in every sense” said Ducati India M.D Ravi Avalur. “With our teamwork with Diesel we’ve widened the potential interest in this limited edition motorcycle beyond the world of motorbike connoisseurs to fashion and design aesthetes.”
Only 666 models will be made internationally and each model will have a metal numbering plate to signify the production number. A very limited numbers of the Ducati Diavel Diesel will be brought to India on order at a price of Rs.19.92 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi) at Ducati dealerships in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune and Ahmedabad.
