Ducati’s Premier Muscle Cruiser: The Diavel 1260
Ducati’s muscular power cruiser is one of the most exciting models in the 2021 Ducati line-up. Featuring all of the classic hallmarks of a genuine Ducati motorcycle, the Diavel includes elegant bodywork, a commanding road presence, and an exotic Testastretta DVT twin-cylinder engine with a fiery temperament. This is what a cruiser looks like when made by an Italian manufacturer.
This class-leading cruiser draws power from Ducati’s muscular 1,262 cc Testastretta DVT 1262 twin-cylinder engine, producing 159 horsepower and 95 lb-ft of peak torque. It’s a powerful cruiser, and to keep that power in check, Ducati has treated the Diavel with a full suite of impressive riding aids.
The most significant of these include a sophisticated ride-by-wire system, three selectable riding modes, three power modes, traction control, wheelie control, cornering ABS, and more. Other plush features include Desmodromic variable valve timing, a full LED lighting system, and a gorgeous two-tailpipe exhaust.
Naturally, riders looking for more can enjoy access from Ducati’s extensive accessory catalog for extensive personalization options.
For 2021, the Diavel 1260 is only available in Dark Stealth black with Sandstone Grey accents.
The 2021 Ducati Diavel 1260 starts at $20,295 USD / $23,695 CAD.
