2019 Ducati Diavel 1260S Review – First Ride

Whatever you do, don’t call it an Indiana – Ducati’s first attempt at a cruiser-inspired motorcycle. The Diavel and xDiavel represent a performance company’s take on cruiser-dom. Powered by a 1262cc V-Twin, the Diavel is a torque machine. Surprisingly, or maybe not considering it’s a Ducati, the Diavel lineup can carve up a twisty road better than it has any right to. Though it clearly has the laid-back cruiser-ish design ethos, once you ride it, there’s no mistaking this is still a performance-oriented machine.
