He's Canadian.

He can't even say about correctly.

If a bald guy buys one of these Ducatis, will he be a Diavel Cromo Domo?

Actually, the Canadian correctly pronounced Diavel. Saying about is no problem, either. It's "a-boot," right?

Since my Italian has been challenged, it should be a Diavel Cromo Duomo.

But, that Italian probably wasn't purporting to be an English professor, eh? There's a difference.

With all due respect, YOU said it correctly, but Tom jacked it up. That's like the Car & Driver Editor making a car review video for a Lamborghini and calling it "Lambor-GEE-nee" or a Bugatti and calling it "Boo-JAH-tee".

Diavel is Bolognese for Diavolo, which is pronounced /dee-AHH-vo-lo/ with the accent on the second syllable. Even the French pronounce it correctly. It's not Diavelle with the accent on the final syllable, sounding like some long-forgotten 1960s Motown band or rusted Pontiac family sedan.

It sounds so terrible and petty, I know. But, if you care at all about sounding like you did your research, then you gotta fix that. You don't call BMW bikes "bimmers" do you? I usually lurk around here, but I had to point this out.

Sorry, gents. Carry on.

And I suppose there's something wrong with being a Cuban Kenneth?

You are sooo racist.
