When the Xdiavel burst onto the scene in 2016, its radical styling took the world by storm. With such a distinctive look, it takes a brave person to remaster it, but veteran customiser Fred Krugger was keen to have a go. The result is clean, futuristic and powerful – everything the Xdiavel represents.
Krugger, winner of two Custom Bike World Championships, intended the Thiverval to build on the power cruiser aesthetic of the Xdiavel, without losing the Ducati DNA, which is why the original headlight remains. Moving away from traditional Ducati looks, the trellis frame has been covered to simplify the lines although the engine remains untouched. The rest of the bike’s shape, such as the seat and tank, has been completely rebuilt and the shapes accentuated by alternating use of matt, gloss and chrome finishes.
The tail of the bike has to be our personal highlight because of the integrated rear light and the stunning underseat exhaust. Might be a bit warm though.
