Since its 2010 debut, Ducati’s Diavel has been steadily winning over the critics who didn’t think Ducati should be in the cruiser business to begin with. With some notable tweaks to its styling and power, the 2015 iteration looks like it’ll continue that trend.
The Diavel’s new 1,198cc Testastretta V-Twin engine generates 162 hp at 9250 rpm and 96.2 foot-pounds of torque (at 8000 rpm). The exhaust system has also been tweaked for 2015. Among the style changes are a headlight that now features a central high-beam surrounded by a set of LEDs, new bar risers, new radiator covers, new fuel gauge and side-stand TFT instrumentation icons, and a redesigned seat. Three electronic riding modes are also intact here: Sport, Touring, and Urban.
