Article by Christian Andrei, on October 12, 2010

Finally, after months of speculation and spy photography, Ducati unveiled today the Diavel and announced that the new motorcycle will make its official debut at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan 2-7 November.

As you may know already Diavel (pronounced Dee-ah-vel) means ‘devil’ in the local Bolognese dialect. Apparently, the name of the stylish red bike, was born early in the development process, according to Ducati.

The name came when the bike was assembled the prototype and revealed in front of a group of Ducati engineers and technicians for the first time. One of the persons looked at it and exclaimed in Bolognese dialect: “Ignurànt comm’ al diavel!” Meaning: “Evil, like the devil!”

This was the moment when Diavel became the internal nickname for the project. The new bike promises to follow the same Bolognese tradition, shaping the future of motorcycling while staying faithful to its heritage.

The Diavel will offer ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes which will deliver a confidence-inspiring sophistication. The bike will be powered by the Superbike-derived Testastretta 11° engine and and will have a total weight of 207kg (456lb).
