YOUR OPINION

Technology has never been so magic.

The Diavel incorporates the very latest in innovative Ducati technologies.

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.

Lateral radiators

The technical solution employed for keeping the frontal lines of the Diavel clean was to place two highly efficient lateral radiators on both sides of the bike.
These well-ducted units, located beneath the fuel tank, use aerodynamics to help draw air flow through the radiators and are assisted by high-flow electric fans when required. The design combines form and function to enhance the muscular shape of the bike.

Split-level instrumentation

The Diavel's instrumentation is a masterpiece of cutting-edge technology.
The upper LCD display provides main information such as speed and rpm, in addition to warning lights, time and temperature.
The lower, full colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display is styled into the fuel tank and provides an incredibly clear account of current Riding Mode, gear selection and DTC setting as well as total mileage and trips. Used on mobile phones and computers, TFT technology is a variant of LCD and displays easy-to-read high resolution graphics.
The Diavel's TFT display goes one step further by using the sensitivity of its surrounding light to decide upon black or white background colour. When stationary, the lower display also doubles as the latest user-friendly control panel to personalise DTC and RbW settings within each Riding Mode before saving.

Hands-free ignition

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.

Ride-by-Wire (RbW)

The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the Diavel's twistgrip and engine, which configures an ideal power response depending on the riding mode selected.
The twistgrip no longer has a throttle cable connected directly to the throttle body butterflies, but instead delivers a signal to a control unit, which in turn operates the butterfly opening electronically. The RbW system uses three different mappings to regulate the power delivery: 162hp with a sports-type delivery, 162hp with a progressive delivery suitable for touring, and 100hp with progressive delivery for city use.

Riding Modes

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).

Ducati Traction Control

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.
