|Domestic Ducati bikes distributors Next Bike today announced the Diavel Stripe, a 2013 rendition of the popular variant. Next Bike has delivered approximately 350 Ducati bikes of the Diavel variant in the country, comprising the standard Diavel, the Cromo, the Carbon and the AMG limited edition.|
The Ducati ‘Diavel’ takes up a name which literally means “Devil” from the Bolognese dialect. The name was conceived by an engineer who exclaimed the rear silhouette of the bike as “Ignurànt comm’ al diavel!”, which translates to “Evil, just like the devil”.
The Stripe is based on the standard Diavel, albeit with external additions such as; white with metallic blue or Ducati Red stripes and the outstanding white wheels. Its street-sport appeal is undeniable! For the Diavel Dark version, a matte black color is added to the 2013 Diavel range. The Diavel variant, itself, came about at the 2010 Milan Motorcycle show.
Featuring the lowest seat height of the Ducati line-up, the Diavel offers twin-level seat that’s wide, comfy and shaped to match the contours of the bike. All Diavel versions use two clear vertical strips of LED lighting to provide tail and brake light illumination as well as directional indicators.
The Diavel’s 17-liter fuel tank represents an integral part of the bike’s overall styling. Its wide, long lines sweep down from the headlamp assembly into the seat and rear sub-frame to create a seamless profile. On each side of the front of the tank are massive air intakes formed in aluminium to feed the engine’s large airbox.
The Diavel 2013 has an output of 162hp, along with three Riding Modes, plus ABS and Ducati Traction Control for dynamic and sporty rides.
The Diavel Stripe is priced at RM116,888 net selling price. In conjunction with Naza’s 38th Anniversary, Next Bike offers the limited pre-registered units of the Diavel from RM 98,888.
