Ducati Diavel

Ducati have unveiled the Diavel power cruiser at the 2010 EICMA show in Milan, and released pictures and a video.

The Diavel’s 1198cc Testastretta engine has 162 horsepower, and a thumping 127Nm of torque. With a dry weight of only 210kg, performance should be good. A 240 series tyre puts it to the ground through a massive single sided swingarm.

The Diavel has a huge 8″(200mm) wide rear rim in a 14 spoke design, while the Carbon model has lightweight alloy Marchesini rims. An ABS controlled set of Brembo monoblocs and 320mm discs up front are mounted in a set of 50mm Marzocchi USD forks.

The Diavel is available in two versions: Diavel which features a red/black or white/black colour scheme, and Diavel Carbon, with a black/red, or black on black livery. The Carbon also features a host of lightweight carbon and aluminium bits, as the name suggests.
