Strong character. Muscular lines. Top performance. Riding pleasure. Strong personality both in design and performances, the Diavel mixes sporty soul and comfort and riding pleasure.
Muscular lines and an imposing front bring out the strong and restless personality of the new Diavel, featuring a long, slender rear with a 240 mm rear wheel. The wide air inlets and the trellis frame complete the elegant picture as they support the engine, the true beating heart of this bike.
The S version, featuring the total black livery and Öhlins suspension, is the embodiment of the new Diavel’s determined and sophisticated style.
1260 S Engine
The new Diavel is built around the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, a beacon of power, beauty and sophistication. Its 152 hp translate to unbelievable acceleration and pick-up, while the flat and consistent torque curve since low rpm allows steady and easy to handle delivery. The Ride by Wire (RbW) control matched with three Riding Modes and three Power Modes allows to personalise engine responsiveness. A true beauty, as far as mechanics and design go, and a real game changer on the road.
Riding pleasure at its best
Sportiness and comfort meet in the new Diavel. The trellis frame ensure lightness and torsional rigidity, while the adjustable fork provides comfort and stability. The care devoted to ergonomics is complemented by the perfect combination of a higher handlebar, a lower seat and central footpegs, with a comfortable and versatile riding position. The S version is fitted with Öhlins suspensions, for a guaranteed fun and an exciting riding experience.
