Rob the scene
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 159 HP Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, beating heart of this new Diavel 1260
The novelty of the Model Year 22 is characterized by the choice of asymmetrical and refined graphics that combine glossy grey and matt black as the main colors, to which are added sporty touches in yellow, including the frame, the lower part of the tail, the dedicated seat badge and some details of the bike.
The Diavel 1260 S “Black and Steel” joins the S version in Thrilling Black & Dark Stealth color with red frame and black wheels, will be available in dealerships later on in 2021. The standard version is available in Dark Stealth color with black frame and black wheels.
Features may include:
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.
The new 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.
Developed and fine-tuned by Ducati engineers, the DVT system optimizes performance and fluidity of delivery at all speed levels.
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.
The riding position, the low-seat “power cruiser” ergonomics, the high handlebar, and the central footpegs, very dear to the hearts of first-hour Diavel enthusiasts, did not change. What did change was the chassis.
The new Diavel 1260 features a fully adjustable, 50-mm diameter fork on the front.
The Diavel 1260 frame is a steel tube trellis using the engine as the key focus of the entire chassis set-up.
The Diavel 1260 fits fourteen-spoke rims, while the 10-spoke rims on the Diavel 1260 S feature an exclusive design and machine processed surface finishes.
The new Diavel 1260 is equipped with the Brembo braking system and ABS Bosch 9.1MP control unit, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) together with Traction Control.
Ducati Traction Control (DTC) is a system derived from racing which basically operating as a filter between the rider’s right hand and the rear tire.
Adjustable on eight levels, the system analyzes the position of the bike (wheelie) and consequently manages torque and power to guarantee maximum acceleration in safety without misalignments. Like the DTC, it has eight levels and has been incorporated in the Riding Modes.
The “Dragster” spirit of the Diavel 1260 is fully displayed thanks to the Ducati Power Launch Evo (DPL). This system ensures a very fast - and safe launch - thanks to the optimized management of the maximum available torque, with a DTC always active and a relentless control of the pitch angle as measured by IMU.
