Any up­dates since 2011?

In 2015 the Di­avel’s en­gine was re­worked to give it more low-end grunt thanks to a dual spark mo­tor while the stain­less steel ex­hausts, dash and LED lights were also re-styled.

The dealer’s view

“It's been a strong seller for us and the cur­rent Xdi­avel is one of our best sell­ing bikes this year. Du­cati cus­tomers are ac­tu­ally quite brave when it comes to ap­pre­ci­at­ing a new model and de­spite the fact the Di­avel was such a rad­i­cal ma­chine, it was well re­ceived in 2011. The MCN award cer­tainly helped sales as it was rub­ber stamp from the in­dus­try. In 2011 the Di­avel was some­thing so rad­i­cal that some non-du­cati fans may have been wary of it, but the award gave it even more cred­i­bil­ity in the eyes of peo­ple who may not have con­sid­ered one.” Dave Reilly, Sales Man­ager Du­cati Coven­try

Owner’s views on mo­tor­cy­cle­news.com

“Quite sim­ply the most out­stand­ing road bike you can buy. I chal­lenge any­one to ride one and not be blown away and com­pletely con­verted. This bike is ac­com­plished at ev­ery­thing and has a huge amount of char­ac­ter and mas­sive grin fac­tor.” Si­mon Lewis

“In the first two months of own­ing the Di­avel I did 1000 miles and loved ev­ery sin­gle one of them! The rid­ing po­si­tion is spot on and there are no aches or pains from the stan­dard seat. The power and speed of this bike is amaz­ing and it goes around corners as well!” Daldry2504
