Ride-by-Wire, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes deliver a confidence-inspiring sophistication that enables riders to fully enjoy the power of the Testastretta 11° engine.
The Diavel's ignition is actuated by an electronic key in the rider's pocket, which communicates with the motorcycle when within a distance of approximately 2 metres (6.5ft).
The motorcycle recognises the dedicated key code and automatically enables the bike's systems.
The electronic key externally doubles as a mechanical flip-key, required to open the seat and fuel tank cap.
When parking the motorcycle, an electronic lock can be actuated on the steering simply by applying full steering-lock and pressing the ignition-off button a second time.
The Diavel incorporates the very latest in innovative Ducati technologies, including the recently introduced electronic Riding Modes.
Selectable from the left-hand switchgear - even while riding - the choice of three pre-set modes are programmed to instantly change the character of the Diavel. The three modes are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as Ride-by-Wire (RbW) and Ducati Traction Control (DTC).
The racing-derived Ducati Traction Control (DTC) is a highly intelligent system which acts as a filter between the rider’s right hand and the rear tyre.
Within milliseconds, DTC is able to detect and control rear wheel-spin, considerably increasing the bike’s active safety and performance.
The system offers eight levels of “sensitivity”, each programmed with an amount of rear wheel-spin tolerance: level one is programmed to offer the least amount of interaction for sport-oriented riders, while level eight uses the most amount of interaction for complete confidence.
DTC levels are factory pre-set in each of the three Riding Modes, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider by accessing the new user-friendly set-up menu. A “default”option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.
