The Testastretta DVT 1262 twin-cylinder engine, beating heart of XDiavel, delivers a maximum power output of 152 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 92.9 lb ft at 5,000 rpm.
Torque always available
Approximately 80% of the maximum torque of the XDiavel is almost immediately available: at 2,100 rpm. This means you can pick up speed without having to shift down a gear, by sightly opening the throttle. Just like you expect from a cruiser. The torque peak – 92.9 lb ft – is reached instead at 5,000 rpm, a pretty low speed for a Ducati twin-cylinder engine. If you want the maximum, when the rev counter pointer reaches 9,500 rpm, the wheel gets 152 hp.
The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt final drive. A must in the cruiser world, the system was developed for the XDiavel by Ducati engineers so as to be able to guarantee reliable and safe transmission of the power supplied by the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262.
The XDiavel ergonomic started from a basic concept: a relaxed riding position, like a real cruiser, with a low seat and forward footpegs. The footpegs of the XDiavel can be adjusted as standard in three positions (+/- 22.5 mm compared to the standard position).
Tires and wheels
At the front the wheel is 3.5″ x 17”, while at the back it is 8″ x 17”. The large rear tyre uses double compound technology to increase grip during the most extreme cornering, guaranteeing at the same time high kilometric performance and applying Enhanced Patch Technology to maximise the contact area with any lean angle. The tread design and the compounds used guarantee exceptional performance in all conditions, especially in the wet.
Full LED lighting system with DRL
The XDiavel S features a dominant front headlight with Daytime Running Light. The DRL is a particular light which guarantees perfect visibility of the bike during the day and, at the same time, thanks to its particular form, makes the XDiavel S instantly recognisable also in sunlight.
