2011 Ducati Diavel Diamond Black
After unveiling the 2011 Diavel two months ago, Ducati is already offering a special edition for it: Diamond Black. As the name suggests, this edition Ducati replaces the originally presented pearl white with a brand new diamond black with black frame. The new scheme will be further enhanced with black anodized headlamp body and lateral air intakes. It will be available starting February next year.
The new Diavel is powered by a Ducati Testastretta 11° engine - developed directly from the incredibly powerful, world-beating race engines of Ducati Corse. With its 162hp and colossal 94lb-ft (127.5Nm) of torque, the Diavel Testastretta 11° engine is all about authentic Ducati Desmodromic performance. The revised intake and exhaust ports combined with radical adjustment of the cam timing have enabled Ducati to achieve a fantastic torque curve at low rpm, which remains strong through a wider rev-range.
Press release after the jump.
Unveiled by Ducati at the Milan International Motorcycle Show last month, the innovative new Ducati Diavel will now also roll out in a stunning diamond black colour scheme following huge interest from enthusiastic show visitors.
Having grabbed global attention at the show, the Italian manufacturer collected instant feed-back from thousands of passionate motorcyclists viewing the bike for the first time and now respond immediately with an update to the Diavel colour options.
While the Diavel Carbon in “red carbon” (gloss red over matte carbon weave) with red frame and “black carbon” (both gloss and matte carbon weave) with black frame, was overwhelmingly loved alongside the Diavel in traditional Ducati Red, Ducati’s response now replaces the originally presented pearl white with a brand new diamond black with black frame. The new scheme will be further enhanced with black anodised headlamp body and lateral air intakes.
The new colour has already been introduced to production and will be available alongside the entire Diavel range in February next year.
