Ducati Diavel motorcycle confirmed, spy photos pop up everywhere

Tuesday, August 31, 2010, 19:33 by Auto Correspondent

There is a new motorcycle which some call a V-Max killer coming up from Ducati. This is a pretty nasty  looking bike we are going to see. The Ducati Diavel (devil) is a hardcore muscle bike which would make its first appearance at the EICMA Milan by end-2010.

Here is the first official promo video of the Ducati Diavel.

There is no information at this point about the actual price and launch date of the Ducati Diavel. Update: It would be at EICMA.

The motorcycle was spotted several times by intrepid photographers, and we have got a few of the Ducati Diavel spy photos for you here.

This new motorcycle was earlier called as the Vyper and also as the Mega Monster and Project 0803,  but now is officially christened by Ducati as the Diavel(Devil).

This new muscle bike from Ducati would be selling along with a long list of Ducati branded clothing and accessories including watches and even cosmetics. From the spy photos, the Ducati Diavel looks quite different from other Ducatis. Large and bulbous proportions are seen everywhere and a rather Devilish looking design we must say. Now we know from where the name Diavel was picked from.

As far as technical specifications go, all we know is that the Ducati Testastretta 11 engine would be powering the Diavel. BHP and performance figures are likely to be finalised only when the launch nears.

A host of latest technology gadgets would be seen on this new Ducati ranging from the ride-by-wire, traction control to ABS – according to rumors, let us clarify!

Just my $.02 The Monster was and is a great concept and probably kept Ducati alive, but they lost me with the squashed peanut gas tank. If they'd used a 916 or even a SuperSport style gas tank, the thing would have been perfect, (kind of like the Streetfighter look nowadays).
