The innovative new Ducati to be unveiled at the Milan show,

123.jpg

After months of speculation and spy photography the long wait is almost over, the Diavel will make its first public appearance at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan 2-7 November.
Officially announcing the new model's name ahead of the official presentation, the famous Italian manufacturer is about to turn another dream into reality, using the local Bolognese dialect word for "devil" in naming their new model Diavel - pronounced Dee-ah-vel.

The idea for the name was born early in the development process of the bike, when the prototype was assembled and wheeled out in front of a group of Ducati engineers and technicians for the first time. One person looking from the rear of the bike saw its silhouette and exclaimed in Bolognese dialect: "Ignurànt comm' al diavel!" Meaning: "Evil, like the devil!"

From then on, Diavel became the internal nickname for the project, which Ducati now makes official as it approaches the upcoming unveiling in Milan. Reminiscent of how the "Monster" was named 20 years ago, the Diavel is now destined to follow the same Bolognese tradition, shaping the future of motorcycling while staying faithful to its heritage.

Built to have a commanding presence, though lightweight and agile like all Ducatis, the Diavel will take the man-motorcycle relationship to the next level in absolute comfort. For connoisseurs of technology, ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes will deliver a confidence-inspiring sophistication while stunning looks, the Superbike-derived Testastretta 11° engine and 207kg (456lb) of authentic Ducati performance will drive a comfortable sport lifestyle that could only be dreamt of until now.

The DIAVEL is on its way....

ducatis version of the Cayenne. its for old guys that refuse to buy a Harley again and too old to handle the wrist pain of a 1198s. the best think is you can still blast off on a guy who has dumped 15k in his HD to make it fast. in stock form.

i hope Zard makes a under the bike exhaust like it did with the triumph rockett III.

I know why they named it Diavel. Because only the Evil Devil himself could love something that Ugly.

I love the coment found in Miticale's link!

November 1, 2010 at 8:57 AM heh and worse yet it looks like a Vrod and a V Max spent a drunken weekend in Tiajuanna and this was the love child. Not ugly as such…but only bit nicer looking than the parents. Oh well, never was one for cruisers and I only care how the dash looks as the road approaches it, 3 seconds ahead.

I LIKE THE IDEA. I DONT LIKE THE LOOK. DOESN'T SAY DUCATI. NOT SEXY...
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A DUCATI CRUISER, BUT WITH THE SITTING POSITION I WOULD GET THE MULTISTRADA INSTEAD...
IF YOU WANT A CRUISER BUILD A CRUISER, NOT ANOTHER MUSCLE BIKE.

Saw the bike in person last night at the AMG booth/party. It looks a little better in person than in the pics. Not really my cup of bike, but I think it's cool in its own unique way.
