2015 Ducati Diavel First Ride
Since it’s introduction in 2011 Ducati has sold nearly 20,000 examples of the Diavel.
The 2015 Ducati Diavel is offered in two trim levels, the $17,995 standard model in single colorway, Dark Stealth, and the Carbon Edition in either Red Carbon or Star White Carbon for $20,995.
When the going gets rapid the Diavel's handling is supremely neutral and surefooted.
Spending the day in the saddle revealed no flaws in the reshaped seat and the rest of the cockpit is laid-out well.
The exhaust cans are now dual megaphones that show more of the single-sided swingarm-mounted rear wheel.
Ducati’s engineers have bumped up the compression to 12.5:1 and have repositioned the fuel injector to spay directly onto the hot intake valve for better atomization of the incoming charge. All this is targeted at a smoother engine character at low rpm while increasing the torque by 4.5%.
Braking performance is well beyond cruiser-spec and is truly full-on superbike with Brembo Monblocs.
The most striking new feature of the 2015 Diavel is the LED headlight housed in a brushed aluminum housing.
User-friendly updates include a fuel level sensor and indicator in the tank mounted TFT display.
With a more aggressive look and a smoother engine the Ducati Diavel has only gotten better for 2015.
Leg room is sporty but not too cramped with the footpegs underneath the rider.
On the return ride to we made a final loop though Monte Carlo, turning the heads of both the locals and tourists alike.
The Diavel’s bars are just wide enough to be comfortable without hindering the performance at any speed.
