Rob the scene

Powerful. Muscular. But also agile and effective between the curves for maximum riding enjoyment. The Diavel 1260 combines the performance of a maxi-naked with the ergonomics of a muscle cruiser. Its design reinterprets the Diavel style with a contemporary look and integrates perfectly the 162 HP Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, beating heart of this new Diavel 1260.  

The standard version is available in total black: the Dark Stealth colouring includes matt black for the superstructures, which is combined with rims, frame and mechanical parts also in black with different finishes. 

The S version, on the other hand, is available in Ducati red with white graphics, alternating with black parts, giving the Diavel 1260 a new sportiness, without sacrificing the style that distinguishes this model.

The Way Out Barcelona | Diavel 1260

The riding position, the low-seat “power cruiser” ergonomics, the high handlebar and the central footpegs, very dear to the hearts of first-hour Diavel enthusiasts, did not change. What did change was the chassis.
