How Much Power Does The 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260 S Make?

Dyno numbers and video on Ducati’s big-bore power cruiser

The Ducati Diavel 1260 is more than a big-bore, Italian power cruiser—it's a potent roadster with enough sporting capability to hold its own against sport-oriented bikes when the road gets twisty. At its core is a 1,262cc Testastretta DVT V-twin engine that's coupled with a ride-by-wire electronics package. The S model adds top-shelf Ӧhlins suspension components, Brembo M50 calipers, additional electronic features, and 10-spoke rims.
