Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The deliveries of the limited edition Ducati Diavel Diesel have begun in India. The bike was launched in the country in March, this year. Ducati Design Centre in Italy has collaborated with Andrea Rosso, Creative Director of premium casual wear brand Diesel Licensing to create this unique motorcycle.
The limited edition Ducati Diavel Diesel will set you back by INR 21,72,000, ex-showroom India. The bike builder from Bologna has produced only 666 units of the Diavel Diesel globally. Ducati India Managing Director Sergi Canovas Garriga commented:
The Diavel family has been one of the bestsellers in our portfolio. The Ducati Diavel Diesel is a very special motorcycle that exemplifies craftsmanship and style in every detail. Our dealers have seen a lot of interest in this limited edition motorcycle and deliveries have started in India.
The distinguishing features of the Ducati Diavel Diesel include hand-brushed stainless steel superstructure. It gets deliberately visible welding and rivets for rugged looks. The air intake covers are red, and so are the Brembo front brake callipers, five chain links and the LCD dashboard. The pipes on the Ducati Diavel Diesel’s exhaust system feature black Zircotec ceramic coating and black silencers with machined ends, on which there is a new pyramid motif.
