This has enabled them to expand into new market segments like the Diavel.

General Manager of Ducati Motor Holding, Claudio Domenicali, explained: "The Diavel is, without doubt, the most exciting innovation in our 2011 line-up because it represents a new concept of motorcycle. It is a naked because it is essential, light and agile; a cruiser because it is imposing and also comfortable with a passenger; and a sports bike because it has a powerful heart, muscles and levels of performance that take your breath away."

The Diavel combines decades of twin-cylinder heritage and Italian style.Built to have a commanding presence, it is still lightweight and agile.

The technology includes ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes with a 162hp engine in the 456 lb machine. A specially-engineered 240-section rear tire combined with Ducati chassis technology is said to offer mind-blowing handling and lean angles, whether carving through curves or riding out for a night on the town.

The Diavel will be available in two versions, including the flagship Diavel Carbon, with red paint a more expensive option. It includes carbon fiber bodywork and forged Marchesini wheels.
