Still a power-cruiser, partly inspired by the Diavel X, but mainly because with the X this “1309” will the 1,260cc variable timing 8-valve Desmo, possibly with a few HPs added. Under its power cruiser styling, the next Diavel features a new chassis with a much more moderate front-end geometry to further enhance the “power” side of its definition. The seat line is at a moderate height, as it must be on a cruiser, while the tank profile still induces the image of a charging bull. Ducati superbike DNA surfaces here and there, and the new Diavel will be a more daring and extrovert (styling wise) mutation of the Monster, if you will. Gone is the final belt drive; instead a more traditional and narrower chain drive further underlines the performance potential of Ducati’s ultimate power cruiser, the next generation of the Diavel.
