The Power of Opposites

Ducati renews the XDiavel range by introducing two new versions for 2021: the XDiavel Dark and the XDiavel Black Star

XDiavel, the Ducati cruiser that combines the best of both worlds, is renewed, still remaining true to its philosophy. 

The new sports version, the Black Star, and the matt black total look version, the XDiavel Dark, further enhance the strengths of the XDiavel. These include the ability to combine exciting performance, sports bike power and refined electronics with the typical cruiser features: a long low and comfortable bike with advanced footpegs and a powerful torque even at low revs, but also top materials and finishes.

The novelties of the XDiavel range

Ergonomics

The new XDiavel offers a relaxed riding position, being characterised by a low seat and advanced footpegs. Starting from this, the many possible settings and the extensive catalogue of accessories allow all riders to adapt the bike to their riding style and physical characteristics.

Riding pleasure

You can tell it is a Ducati at the first corner: the way it leans, its technical content, its cutting-edge electronic package and high performance guarantee an unforgettable riding experience. The wide handlebar and advanced footpegs of the new XDiavel, on the other hand, offer riding feelings that allow a relaxed and comfortable ride at any speed.

Engine

For the entire XDiavel 2021 range, the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 twin-cylinder engine becomes Euro 5 compliant in all countries that adopt this standard. To comply with the new European emissions standard, an updated silencer layout has been adopted, with a new design that further enhances the bike's lines and a new engine calibration. As a result, the XDiavel delivers a maximum power output of 160 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13.0 kgm at 5,000 rpm, with an increase of 8 hp and 0.2 kgm compared to the Euro 4 version. (Only for countries where Euro 5 standard applies.)

Equipment

The standard equipment of the XDiavel is extensive and includes: Bosch inertial platform (IMU), ABS Cornering and Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Power Launch, full-LED lighting system and, on the S and Black Star versions, Daytime Running Light, forged and anodised side frame plates with visible machining, billet aluminium rear-view mirrors and Ducati Multimedia System.

Testastretta DVT 1262

The undisputed protagonist of the XDiavel, the Testastretta DVT 1262 twin-cylinder engine, becomes compliant with the new European emissions standard, featuring an updated and newly designed silencer layout and a new engine calibration. As a result, the XDiavel delivers a maximum power output of 160 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13.0 kgm at 5,000 rpm, with an increase of 8 hp and 0.2 kgm compared to the Euro 4 version.

5,000 rpm

Approximately 80% of the maximum torque of the XDiavel is almost immediately available: at 2,100 rpm. This means you can pick up speed without having to shift down a gear, by sightly opening the throttle. Just like you expect from a cruiser. The torque peak - 13.0 kgm - is reached instead at 5,000 rpm, a pretty low speed for a Ducati twin-cylinder engine. If you want the maximum, when the rev counter pointer reaches 9,500 rpm, the wheel gets 160 hp. (Only for countries where Euro 5 standard applies).

Ducati Power Launch (DPL)

The "Dragster" spirit of the XDiavel can be fully expressed thanks to the Ducati Power Launch (DPL). This system can guarantee fast and safe starts thanks to the Bosch IMU which regulates the gas and the intervention of the DTC on the basis of the setting chosen.

Read more
Ride-by-Wire

The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the engine and the Diavel's fuel grip, which allows the ideal power level to be configured depending on the Riding Mode selected.

Belt transmission

The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt final drive.

Read more
Forward footpegs

When the designers and engineers started to work on the XDiavel, they started from a basic concept: a relaxed riding position, like a real cruiser, with a low seat and forward footpegs.

Read more
Adjustable suspension

The XDiavel has a 50 mm diameter front fork with black anodised sheaths, which can be completely adjusted in the hydraulic braking in compression and extension and in the spring preload (the S version also has stems with DLC coating).

Read more
Bosch Brembo braking system

The XDiavel is equipped, as standard, with the Brembo braking system with Bosch 9.1ME ABS Cornering. ABS Cornering makes use of the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform by Bosch to optimise the braking power of the front and back wheels, also in critical situations and when cornering. The system, implemented within the Riding Mode, can provide performance to suit all conditions and riding styles.

Read more
Tyres and wheels

The XDiavel features fourteen-spoke rims: 3.5" x 17" at the front and 8" x 17" at the rear. A 120/70 ZR17 tyre is fitted at the front, with a redesigned tread pattern to maximise performance in wet conditions. The rear tyre instead is 240/45 ZR17. The tyres are the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III.

Read more
Riding Mode

The XDiavel integrates the latest innovations in Ducati technology, such as Riding Modes.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

DTC is a very smart system which acts as a "filter" between the rider's right hand and the rear wheel.

Read more
Full LED lighting system with DRL

The XDiavel S features a dominant front headlight with Daytime Running Light (in countries where it is allowed).
