2021 Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini Features
A motorcycle made in a limited and numbered edition of 630 units and destined to win the hearts of motorcyclists and collectors from all over the world. Unconventional, unique, unmistakable. The Diavel is the model in the Ducati range able to amaze enthusiasts with its personality, with the road behaviour of a naked sport thanks to a thoroughbred sports engine and with its design, which has made it an icon of style and ‘Made in Italy’ and for which it has received prestigious international recognition such as the ‘Red Dot Award’ and ‘Good Design Award’.
Ducati and Lamborghini are Italian excellences that share values such as sportiness, attention to design and a meticulous devotion to detail. Starting from this common basis, the Ducati designers have chosen to be inspired in this special project by one of the most fascinating models of the Sant’Agata Bolognese company, the Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37.
Made starting from the base of the Diavel 1260 S, the Diavel Lamborghini was conceived by transferring the basic concepts of the design of the Siàn FKP 37 to the motorcycle world and by redesigning the components that most characterize the Diavel. First of all, the forged wheels, light and with a new design, which explicitly recall those of the car, but also the air intakes and radiator covers, made of carbon fiber, and designed by superimposing floating elements on the main structure of the bike.
The heart of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT with variable timing. This homologated engine can deliver 157 hp at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm (13.2 kgm) at 7,500 rpm with a flat torque curve right from medium-low revs, which always guarantees a vigorous and energetic response.
Some of the key features of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini are the typical “power cruiser” riding position and ergonomics of the Diavel model, along with the exposed tubular steel trellis frame, the 240 mm wide rear tire, the single-sided aluminum swingarm and the fully adjustable Öhlins suspensions at the front and rear. The chassis guarantees high levels of handling and lean angles, but also an excellent level of comfort.
Sophisticated electronics ensure both high-level performance and maximum safety. Bosch’s 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) platform is able to instantly detect the speed and acceleration of the motorcycle and allows the operation of many of the control devices fitted to the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini. The electronic package includes Bosch Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC), Ducati Power Launch EVO (DPL) and Cruise Control.
