2020 Ducati Diavel 1260 Diavel 1260 Road Manual 6sp 1260cc (Testastretta)
2020 Ducati Diavel 1260:
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.
The beating heart of the Diavel 1260 is the 1262 cm3 Ducati Testastretta DVT engine with variable cam timing. Already widely appreciated on the XDiavel, it has now been upgraded to optimise performance and equipped with chain-type final transmission. This engine also provides a clean, classy side view with a quality finish, establishing it as the core of the bike also from a style standpoint. The twin-cylinder Diavel 1260 puts out 159 hp (117 kW) at 9,500 rpm* and 129 Nm (13.1 kgm) at 7,500 rpm, delivering steady pulling power right from the low-medium rev range to ensure a robust engine response as and when needed. Thanks to a variable timing system which acts continuously on the intake and exhaust camshafts, the engine adjusts power delivery to suit riding conditions: extremely smooth at low revs, assertively sporty at high revs.
The riding position and ‘power cruiser’ ergonomics so popular with first-generation diavelisti remain unchanged. What has changed is the chassis set-up. The Diavel sports a prominent tubular steel Trellis frame. Anchored to it is an aluminium swingarm, sized to give surprising cornering agility, superb ‘feel’ and easy riding. The rear wheel – 240 mm wide with a diameter of 17 inches – remains a Diavel hallmark and, together with the chassis set-up, merges excellent handling and lean angles with outstanding comfort levels.
Sophisticated electronics guarantees both extraordinary performance and maximum safety. The 6-axis Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) instantaneously detects bike speed and acceleration and is crucial to the proper operation of many of the control devices on the Diavel 1260. The electronics package includes Bosch Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, Ducati Power Launch (DPL) EVO and Cruise Control.
