Ducati and Diesel have unveiled their new collaboration – the Ducati Diavel Diesel. Merging elements of the past and future, the Ducati Diavel Diesel – of which only 666 numbered units will be produced – is the fruit of collaboration between Andrea Rosso, creative director of Diesel Licences, and the Ducati Design Center.

Power is from the 162hp Testastretta 11° DS engine combined with the Ducati Safety Pack (anti-lock braking and traction control).

“The collaboration with Diesel enabled us to explore original stylistic and technical aspects whilst staying within the Ducati brand and fully respecting its values,” said Ducati Motor Holding CEO Claudio Domenicali. “In this case we worked with Diesel on an already uniquely original bike like the Diavel and the result was surprising to put it mildly. The details characterising the Diavel Diesel cannot fail to captivate connoisseurs of special bikes but also people from different walks of life, such as fashion.”

“It’s an important bike that reflects the rock side of Diesel’s DNA,” explained Andrea Rosso. “The wording ‘Never look back’ engraved with the two logos captures the essence of this collaboration: a timeless bike that catches the eye with so many unmistakable details, such as the brushed stainless steel with visible welding and rivets. Ducati, Diavel and Diesel, three words, six letters each, forming 666, the limited number of examples of this new collaboration.”

The Ducati Diavel Diesel is characterised by a hand-brushed stainless steel superstructure with visible welding and rivets that make it absolutely unmistakable and timeless. Details like the tank cover, front cowl and passenger saddle cover are examples of craftsmanship and style. The saddle, made of real leather, is unique to this Diavel, on which the pyramid element appears at various points: three identical faces embodying the three Ds of Ducati, Diavel and Diesel.

Other distinguishing features of this very special Diavel include the lateral air intake covers, made of red methacrylate with the Diesel logo on the inside. Red is also the colour of the Brembo front brake callipers, of five chain links and the LCD dashboard, which recalls vintage digital displays. The Ducati Diavel Diesel’s exhaust system is another little work of art, thanks to pipes graced by black Zircotec ceramic coating and black silencers with ends machined from solid, on which the new pyramid motif appears.

The Ducati Diavel Diesel is a bike that masters the road whilst being lightweight and agile, like all Ducati motorcycles. Its 120kW Testastretta 11° DS engine combined with the Ducati Safety Pack (ABS and Ducati Traction Control) and Riding Mode offer a riding experience that’s thrilling and at the same time safe and intuitive. The 240mm wide rear tyre is full of personality and, thanks to the effective chassis set-up, also delivers high-precision handling but also comfort for day-to-day use.

Diesel built up quite a reputation in motorcycle racing in the early 1990s when it sponsored the Superbike World Championship.
