Looking for pure Italian muscle? Well, look no further than the 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260 which is the next-generation power cruiser from Ducati with more power and agility than ever before. As stated by Ducati “the new Diavel 1260 combines the performance of a maxi-naked with the ergonomics of a muscle cruiser.”

Highly-regarded as Ducati’s model that is both highly-sophisticated and a bit of a hooligan, the new Diavel 1260 comes with design elements that help to further highlight its muscular figure, defined sharp lines, and a 244kg machine that can be taken to the drag strip or even the opera house without looking out of place.

The biggest highlight of the 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260 sits firmly in the centre of its reworked tubular steel trellis frame which is a 1,262cc Ducati Testastretta DVT L-twin engine. This translates to a maximum firepower of 159hp at 9,500rpm and 129Nm of torque at 7,500rpm which offers an exhilarating riding performance thanks to its flat yet consistent torque curve (and a reworked Ride-by-Wire throttle).

To ensure that all the power is efficiently controlled by the rider, Ducati has also enhanced the 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260’s electronics package (Ducati Safety Pack) with a host of upgrades that includes:

  • Bosch Cornering ABS EVO
  • Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC)
  • Selectable Riding Modes
  • Power Modes
  • Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC)
  • Ducati Power Launch Control EVO (DPL)

As for the 2019 Ducati Diavel 1260 S, these are the extra equipment which comes as standard:

  • Ohlins fully-adjustable suspension package
  • Ducati Quick Shift up/down EVO (DQS)
  • Daytime-Running Light (DRL)
  • Self-cancelling turn indicators
  • Ducati Multimedia System
  • Brembo monobloc M50 calipers (M4.32 for the base Diavel 1260)
