  • Ducati say the Multistrada is four bikes in one, but the XDiavel is two bikes in one. It can do the whole looking cool in the city cruiser vibe chugging along at.

    Ducati's XDiavel is a cruiser/sport bike hybrid that introduces two opposing camps of riders to an excit-ing new experience with a blend of.

    it s safe to say that cruiser isn t exactly the first word that comes to mind when one thinks of ducati or even the third yet here we are with the ().

    That is what this motorcycle is about: Multistrada means all the Ducati technology, performance and comfort, to live great adventures and travels at any distance on any road. Engine spec, riding position, engine calibration, and electronics are the same for both bikes. This machine will please and it is certainly a great bike for some riders. The high quality Brembo components combined with Bosch ABS, the specific suspension set-up and Pirelli Enhanced Patch Technology guarantee excellent braking performance for the XDiavel as well as utmost safety in all conditions and for riders of any level.

    Ducati XDiavel: unique Sport-Cruiser bikes

    Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali wandered into the breakfast room and sat down with a table full of journalists the day after this collection of scribblers, coders, and general malcontents rode the XDiavel. Yes, instead of hanging out at the pool or answering his email, Claudio was geared-up and in the scrum with us. A distinctive Omega-shaped daytime running light is standard on the XDiavel S.

    Ducati wants you to recognize the bike even in a set of fuzzy rearviews. A lunch of champions. For sure the cruiser market is big. We wanted something with a lot of performance and also a lot of style. But to make it bigger would destroy the style.

    That is what this motorcycle is about: In a Ducati way. Long and low, yes, but also thick and purposeful—very much in the power cruiser realm.

    But it all hangs together, and the vague sense that the XDiavel is very much connected to the regular Diavel holds until you look at a picture of the older bike. Your mind was playing tricks: Yes, this is where it gets interesting. Assume anything with the Diavel name will pack the ponies; the regular Diavel makes hp at the crank and 96 pound-feet of torque. For the XDiavel, Ducati developed the degree V-twin in a couple of different directions, first adding Ducati Variable Timing as debuted on the Multistrada last year.

    Both intake and exhaust cams get the variable-timing treatment, with the goal of improving low-end and midrange power without sacrificing high-rev thrills, plus a bunch of other benefits like increased efficiency and smoother running. DVT and a very sophisticated engine-management system that includes knock sensors allows a half-point boost in compression ratio to A massively broad spread of power comes from engine updates including variable timing for all eight desmodromically operated valves.

    So, more cubes and compression, and now DVT. Actually a slight drop in peak power and torque now hp and 95 pound-feet in the service of a much, much broader powerband. Dyno charts are pretty academic, but the surge you feel as the engine crosses 3, rpm and heads to the 5,rpm first peak is anything but. In those two thousand revs, the engine goes from 77 to 95 pound-feet of torque. While not as free-revving as, say, the Multistrada or Diavel engine, the X-DVT mill is still extremely lively, making the bike claw for speed with fearsome resolve, the generally excellent traction control doing its best to keep the mm-wide, dual-compound rear Pirelli under you.

    You reflexively clench your knees toward the tank and ball your fists, since the forward foot controls keep you from pushing against the torrent of torque. Oil-operated spools on the cam drives can continuously and independently vary intake and exhaust valve timing to optimize torque throughout the range and make the engine both smoother and cleaner running at low revs. Re-tuning this engine dramatically changes its character, with DVT giving it much better low-rpm manners than the fixed-timing versions of the Testastretta.

    Even the High power mode, which Ducati usually imbues with overly abrupt throttle response, was smooth and predictable here.

    Where the Diavel had twin, very visible head pipes and twin silencers, the XDiavel gets a larger under-body canister with catalyst and a pair of stubby ejectors. The XDiavel will dispatch traffic, slam past dawdling rental cars, and crush every other performance cruiser with startling ease. Oh, you VMAX guys can sit down now. Ducati took a dive into rubber, with a Gates carbon fiber-reinforced belt final drive, a first for Ducati.
