Ducati XDiavel rolls off production line

Ducati XDiavel-rolls off production Ducati has announced that it has officially commences production of the new XDiavel cruiser motorcycle. The first cruiser made by the Bologna-based manufacturer came off the production line on 10 December.

The XDiavel, winner of the “Most beautiful bike of the show” award at EICMA 2015, represents the union of two different worlds: the cruiser world characterised by low speeds, highly relaxing rides and long journeys, together with the world of Ducati with its Italian style, technical refinement and the highest levels of performance.

The XDiavel ensures the “low speed excitement” typical of a Cruiser and the adrenaline rush of sports riding that Ducati has made its own. That’s what the X in XDiavel stands for: the merging of two apparently separate, distant worlds on one bike, a superb combination where both are accomplished without compromise. 5,000, 60, 40.

Three numbers that sum up the XDiavel concept – 5,000 as in the rpm at which the twin-cylinder engine achieves maximum torque (13.1 kgm). 60, as in the number of different ergonomic configurations for the rider. Lastly, 40, as in the maximum attainable lean angle. The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt-driven final drive – a must in the world of cruisers.

The Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) together with the Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Riding Modes, Bosch ABS Cornering, Cruise Control and the innovative Ducati Power Launch (DPL) together make the Ducati a technologically advanced, high-performance and, above all, safe motorcycle.

With the Ducati XDiavel, the marque enters the Cruiser domain and does so in its own inimitable way, presenting a true Cruiser with all the design, technology and performance one expects from a Ducati thoroughbred. The XDiavel brings together two worlds: the Cruiser world and Ducati world. Additionally, the XDiavel ensures the “low speed excitement” typical of a Cruiser and the adrenaline rush of sports riding that Ducati has made its own. That’s what the X in XDiavel stands for: the merging of two apparently separate, distant worlds on one bike, a superb combination where both are accomplished
without compromise.

The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt-type final transmission. A must within the Cruiser world, this system has been developed for the XDiavel by Ducati engineers to ensure reliable, secure transmission of the power provided by the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262. Belt drive offers the advantages of more silent running, cleanliness, reduced maintenance and the fluid throttle response one wants from a Cruiser.
