2021 Diavel 1260 S Red
Powerful. Muscular. But also agile and effective between the curves for maximum riding enjoyment. The new 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 159 HP Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, beating heart of this new Diavel 1260.

A contemporary character
Muscular lines and an imposing front bring out the strong and restless personality of the new Diavel, featuring a long, slender rear with a 240 mm rear wheel. The color range of the Diavel 1260 has been updated: the standard version is now available in total black, while the S version is available in Ducati red with white graphics. A new sporty Diavel 1260 S, without sacrificing the style that distinguishes it.
The engine is the king
The new Diavel is built around the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, a beacon of power, beauty and sophistication. Its 152 hp translates to unbelievable acceleration and pick-up, while the flat and consistent torque curve since low rpm allows steady and easy to handle delivery. The Ride by Wire (RbW) control matched with three Riding Modes and three Power Modes allows to personalize engine responsiveness. A true beauty, as far as mechanics and design go, and a real game-changer on the road.
Riding pleasure at its best
Sportiness and comfort meet in the new Diavel. The trellis frame ensure lightness and torsional rigidity, while the adjustable fork provides comfort and stability. The care devoted to ergonomics is complemented by the perfect combination of a higher handlebar, a lower seat and central footpegs, with a comfortable and versatile riding position. The S version is fitted with Öhlins suspensions, for a guaranteed fun and an exciting riding experience.
The new Diavel is an ode to elegance and sophisticated details: carbon fibre components and a finely stitched premium quality seat complement the Diavel’s outstanding style. No compromises were made on its aggressive character, as Marchesini forged rims and the Thrilling Black & Dark Stealth liveries testify. The Daytime Running Light (DRL) headlight, available on the S version, is an unmistakeable hallmark of the new Diavel.
