Pure Riding Power: Ducati's Diavel 1260

Powerful. Muscular. But also agile and effective between the curves for maximum riding enjoyment. The 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 162 HP Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, beating heart of this new Diavel 1260.

The standard version is available in total black: the Dark Stealth coloring 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.

The Engine is the King

The new Diavel 1260 is equipped with a twin cylinder, 1262 cc, desmodromic Ducati Testastretta DVT with a new architecture, translating to a sportier delivery, and chain final drive. Its 157 hp translates to unbelievable acceleration and pick-up, while the flat and consistent torque curve low rpm allows steady and easy to handle delivery.

Ducati Quick Shift Evo (DQS)

The Diavel 1260 S comes standard with Ducati Quick Shift up&down (DQS), the system that lets you shift gear without using the clutch, which translates into superior riding pleasure and comfort, especially in urban routes.

Exhaust System

The new Diavel 1260 exhaust is a two-tailpipe, chambered 2-in-1 unit. The exhaust pipes were designed to display the engine and the central body was placed before the rear wheel in order to be barely visible.
