I like the styling, and I applaud the efforts by Ducati, and other manufacturers, that are willing to take chances and introduce new products to market. There's already enough tired, bland, minor refreshed, and stagnant designs coming out year after year, that its refreshing to see something a little different. I could definitely see myself enjoying a nice ride on this machine.The new Diavel also makes use of Ducati Traction Control (DTC), which has already debuted on the company’s production Superbike line and is now filtering down into the street lineup. 09-Diavel.jpg ducati 2011

Featuring 162 horsepower Twin and a claimed 456-pound dry weight, the Diavel is all-new for Ducati. A pair of radiators cool down the Twin, with a 2-1-2 exhaust routing fumes out the rightside aluminum canisters (the exhaust silencers also gracing the Ducati Monster 1100 EVO, revealed alongside the Diavel). Electronic gizmos also include three ride modes, selected at the left switchgear button and viewed on the tank-mounted instrument display.On each side of the 5.3-gallon fuel tank are aluminum air intakes (the positioning remarkably similar to the distinctive airscoops on the V-MAX, which now seems to finally have its class doppleganger). 05-Diavel.jpg09-Diavel.jpg ducati 2011
