The Ducati India has relaunched the Diavel family in India, with the limited edition Ducati Diavel, of which only 666 have been made globally. Dark? Well, what else were you expecting from El Diavel? The Diesel edition, which just to clear the air, does NOT use a diesel motor is based on what Ducati say is the ‘energetic dynamism of a post-apocalyptic future’ and has been designed in collaboration with Andrea Rosso Creative Director of premium casual wear brand Diesel Licensing, and the Ducati Design Center in Italy.
“The Diavel family has been one of the bestsellers in our portfolio. The Ducati Diavel Diesel is a very special motorcycle that exemplifies craftsmanship and style in every detail,” said Ducati India Managing Director Sergi Canovas Garriga. “Our dealers have seen a lot of interest in this limited edition motorcycle and deliveries have started in India.”
Setting the Diavel Diesel apart from the competition includes hand-brushed stainless steel superstructure with visible welding and rivets and the red colour on the air intake covers, Brembo front brake calipers, five chain links and the LCD dashboard. The Ducati Diavel Diesel’s exhaust system gets the black treatment two with a black Zircotec ceramic coating and black silencers with machined ends, on which the new pyramid motif appears.
The Diavel continues with the 52 HP Testastretta 11° DS engine combined with the Ducati Safety Pack (ABS and Ducati Traction Control) and Riding Modes which means it will be almost entirely the same as any Ducati Diavel. The party piece however, is the almost sinister 240mm that adds the Diavels road presence. The Ducati Diavel Diesel is priced at 21,72,000 (Ex-showroom India) and is available across all Ducati dealerships including Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kochi and Kolkata. Now if you do manage to get your hands on one of the 666 bikes on offer, Ducati is also offering some exclusive finance schemes and exchange offers, with accessory benefits of up to INR 1,00,000 for a limited period.
