Video Courtessy of PetroHead

Unconventional, unique, unmistakeable. As soon as it was launched at EICMA 2010, the Diavel stunned with its personality, design, sport naked handling and  thoroughbred engine.
The second-generation Diavel 1260 remains faithful to the original spirit of that incredibly special bike, drawing on its key styling elements yet bringing  
them decidedly up to date. 

Now, the Diavel has more assertive outlines and higher performance, is more fun on mixed-road routes and even more comfortable, for rider and passenger alike.

Its sport naked soul is magnified by a Testastretta DVT 1262 engine that combines breath-taking acceleration with the smooth low-rev power delivery that is ideal for everyday rides or longer-lasting tours.

An upgraded chassis set-up makes the Diavel 1260 more responsive on mixed-road routes while high grade technology and electronics provide braking performance on a par with that of a  sport bike (and does so safely, thanks to Bosch Cornering ABS) and user-friendly engine performance control. Comfort levels for rider and passenger remain  outstanding thanks to, first and foremost, an upright riding position and a  
large, generously padded seat. 

A sportier S version of the Diavel 1260 is also available. Features include  fully adjustable Öhlins suspension at both front and rear, dedicated wheels and  
an even higher-performance braking system.

This second-generation Diavel draws on the key aesthetic concepts of its predecessor and brings them up to date: on the Diavel 1260 styling hallmarks  
include the forward-flung mass that gives the bike its aggressive stance, the streamlined tail and the prominent 240 mm rear tyre.

The three covers that make up the tank are made of sheet metal. These have been slimmed down in the seat contact zone to improve ergonomics for the rider.  

Two large brushed aluminium air intakes, which connect up the tank via a  differently coloured C-frame, provide additional character (again, the concept  
derives from the first-generation Diavel).

The short, compact tail houses an extractable passenger grab rail and the lights, giving the back of the Diavel 1260 a lightweight sport look that contrasts sharply with the beefy front. 

Another key Diavel 1260 trait consists of the water radiator side covers, these incorporate vertically arranged indicators that use “light blade”  
technology, a feature that required an in- depth lighting design effort.

Embedded in the indicators is a transparent “blade”. This features graphics that, when the indicator comes on, generate a 3D effect that makes the Diavel 1260 instantly recognisable.

The modern headlight with its distinctive upside-down horseshoe-shape DRL (S version) merges perfectly with the smoke-tinted nose fairing that shields the  instrumentation, making the front end of the Diavel 1260 strikingly assertive. 

Engine and frame play a major side-on styling role thanks to inimitable uncluttered outlines. Once again, seamless integration of parts is evident in  
the details: for example, the air intake for the horizontal cylinder belts,  incorporated in the belly fairing, contains numerous electronic components and  
acts as an oil radiator cover.

What’s more, the Thrilling Black Dark Stealth livery of the Diavel 1260 S offers an eye-catching contrast between the ‘total black’ look of the bike and  the red frame at its centre, making the classic Ducati Trellis frame the  aesthetic hub of the bike.
