New Ducati Diavel to be Launched in Milan - Web Exclusive

Diavel became the internal nickname for the project, which Ducati now makes official as it approaches the upcoming unveiling in Milan.

After months of speculation, the long wait is almost over; the Diavel will make its first public appearance at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan 2-7 November.

Officially announcing the new model's name ahead of the presentation, the Italian manufacturer is about to turn another dream into reality, using the local Bolognese word for "devil" to name their new model Diavel (pronounced Dee-ah-vel).

The name was born early in the development process of the bike, when the prototype was wheeled out in front of a group of Ducati personnel for the first time. One person, looking from the rear of the bike, saw its silhouette and exclaimed in Bolognese dialect: "Ignurant comm' al diavel!" Meaning: "Evil, like the devil!"

From then on, Diavel became the internal nickname for the project, which Ducati now makes official as it approaches the upcoming unveiling in Milan. Reminiscent of how the "Monster" was named 20 years ago, the Diavel is now destined to follow the same Bolognese tradition, shaping the future of motorcycling while staying faithful to its heritage.

Built to have a commanding presence, though lightweight and agile like all Ducatis, the Diavel will take the man/motorcycle relationship to the next level in absolute comfort.

For connoisseurs of technology, it gets ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes. The engine is the superbike-derived Testastretta 11º and the machine weighs 456 lb.
