2016 Ducati XDiavel

2016 Ducati XDiavel

The 2016 Ducati XDiavel features belt final drive,  the forward-mounted controls have been punched out a bit further, and it sports wide tracker-style bars. The 2016 XDiavel also sees a bigger engine, a 1262cc Ducati Testastretta L-Twin with Desmodromic Variable Timing. While the new engine has a bit longer stroke and higher compression ratio, the one thing that sticks out the most about the new mill is max torque comes 3000 rpm earlier, the engine of the XDiavel churning out 95.0 lb-ft @ 5000 rpm compared to 96.3 lb-ft @ 8000 rpm from the prior 1198cc Diavel Testastretta. Ducati eliminated the headlight shroud, side intakes, rerouted the pipes, and trimmed down both the tail section and rear fender so more of the motorcycle’s industrial design is on display. The technology package includes cornering ABS, DTC, variable riding modes, cruise control, hands-free communication, a TFT Dashboard and electric locks. Design also hypes its powerful set of LED lights.
