Limited edition Titanium model highlights Diavel range

Introduced at EICMA 2014, the Ducati Diavel range, which includes the standard Diavel and the Diavel Carbon, is bolstered by the limited-edition Diavel Titanium. As the name suggests, the Diavel Titanium takes advantage of the lightweight and sturdy metal, and combines it with strategic doses of carbon fiber to create an elegant yet sinister looking new member of the Diavel family, of which only 500 will be made.

All three Diavels feature the same Testastretta 11-degree Dual-Spark engine, churning out 162 claimed horsepower at the crank. That power is fed to the fat 240/45-17 Pirelli Diablo Rosso II rear tire (up front is a more conventional 120/70-17 Diablo Rosso II), and in the event you need help taming it all, the Diavel’s electronics package is there to help. Featuring three ride modes (Sport, Touring, Urban), as well as Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and ABS, each Diavel does its best to behave like a gentle giant. Marzocchi provides the 50mm inverted fork for all three models, while Sachs brings the monoshock. Both front and rear are fully adjustable. All three models feature TFT instrumentation and LED headlights.

In addition, the Titanium also gets the following items:

  • Machine-finished forged black wheels with dedicated design
  • Titanium central and side tank covers
  • Titanium headlight cover
  • Passenger seat cover in carbon with titanium insert
  • Specially designed air intakes in carbon fiber
  • Carbon fiber radiator covers
  • Carbon fiber windscreen
  • Carbon fiber front and rear fenders
  • Carbon fiber front sprocket cover
  • Carbon fiber tank filler surround
  • Seat in Alcantara and leather
  • Exhaust pipes with Zircotech ceramic lining
  • Stainless-steel silencers
  • Individually numbered tank-mounted plaque (XXX/500)

The Diavel Carbon will be available in two color choices: Red Carbon with a red frame and black wheels, or Star White with a white frame and black wheels. Aside from the Testastretta engine, suspension, lighting, instrumentation, ride modes, ABS and DTC the standard model receives, the Carbon also features:

  • Marchesini, forged, turned and milled wheels
  • Stainless-steel silencers
  • Carbon fiber tank cover
  • Carbon fiber rear seat cover
  • Carbon fiber front mud guard

The standard Diavel will be available in only one color scheme: Dark Stealth with a black frame and equally dark wheels. Pricing was not available as of press time.
