Ducati Motorcycles Diavel 1260 2022

According to Ducati Motorcycles

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, now compliant with Euro 5 regulation standards*

The novelty of the Model Year 22 is characterised by the choice of asymmetrical and refined graphics that combine glossy grey and matt black as the main colours, 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 colour with red frame and black wheels, will be available in dealerships starting from July 2021. The standard version is available in Dark Stealth colour with black frame and black wheels.
