Low speed excitement
Dauntless, irreverent, unheard of, the new XDiavel breaches the world of cruisers with Ducati values, merging concepts that apparently stand worlds apart. Travelling and relaxing to the comfort of forward controls combines with the performance and handling of a real Ducati. The new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 engine reconciles the two different personalities of the XDiavel, ensuring superbike muscle and a flat torque curve from the low rev range upwards.
Enjoy the road, with confidence
When designing each bike, Ducati constantly aims to ensure maximum reliability and to reduce maintenance costs. A commitment that has made it possible to lengthen the times between Desmo Service scheduled maintenance checkups (during which valve clearance is checked and adjusted as needed) to 30,000 km for the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine of the XDiavel.
Even the simplest checkups like the Oil Service have reached 15,000 km or 12 months. A considerable range for high performance engines, which confirms the high quality standards adopted in the choice of materials and research and development processes.
Ducati is constantly investing in the technical training of its dealers: the specific expertise of the network of official Ducati Service points allows you to punctually perform all the operations necessary to keep every Ducati at its best, and advanced equipment like the Ducati Diagnosis System make it possible to update the software of every Ducati with the latest releases available to ensure the peak performance of electronic systems.
Always by your side
One of Ducati’s main goals is to offer every Ducatista the chance to enjoy unlimited and safe travel all over the world. To achieve this aim, Ducati offers a “fast delivery” original spares service, with delivery in 24/48 hours across 85% of the areas in which it operates. With a distribution network that covers more than 90 countries, thanks to 783 official Dealers and Service Points, choosing a Ducati means you can travel worry-free and in total freedom, wherever the road may take you, and count on capillary support that ensures Ducati quality and professionalism is always close at hand.
In designing each bike, Ducati constantly strives to ensure maximum reliability while reducing service costs. A commitment that has seen the intervals for the main Desmo Service, in which valve clearance is checked and adjusted if necessary, to be extended to 30,000 km, 24,000 km or 12,000 km (18,000 mi, 15,000 mi or 7,000 mi respectively) depending on the model. Even the simplest of checks, such as the Oil Service, are extended to 15,000 km (9,000 mi)/12 months or 12,000 km (7,000 mi)/12 months. A considerable interval for such high-performance engines, which only confirms the high quality standards adopted in terms of material selection and R&D processes. Ducati continuously invests in the technical training of its dealers.
The specific skills offered by the official Ducati Service network ensure that all those operations needed to keep every Ducati in perfect condition are thoroughly executed, while advanced equipment such as the Ducati Diagnosis System allows the software on each Ducati to be updated with the latest releases, ensuring that the electronics continue to perform at the maximum level.
Safety as standard
The constant work done by Ducati in terms of design, research and development has the specific objective of ensuring cutting-edge motorcycles characterised by the highest levels of active safety. A commitment that translates into the definition of increasingly advanced systems that increase the level of the rider’s control, as in the case of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), the package for the XDiavel consisting in Bosch ABS and Ducati Traction Control (DTC), both adjustable. An outfitting that optimises the dynamic behaviour of the motorcycle both during braking and acceleration, and, in this case, thanks to the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) it also incorporates the Cornering function for the Bosch ABS, allowing the systems to perform effectively even in curves.
This is X
XDiavel represents the merger of two worlds: that of the cruiser for long, low speed relaxing journeys, and that of the Ducati, characterised by Italian style, technical sophistication and very high performance. The X of XDiavel is just that: the crossover between apparently differing and distant worlds, united in a single bike, a synthesis where both are fully realised without any compromises.

Testastretta DVT 1262
The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is a completely new and Euro 4 approved engine which uses the Desmodromic Variable Timing system. The increase in engine capacity compared to the Testastretta 1200, together with the use of the Desmodromic Variable Timing system, has enabled supply of incredibly full and at the same time fluid torque at low running speeds, while also guaranteeing sports performance when the throttle is fully opened.
In addition, the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 has a particularly detailed design which, thanks to the repositioning of the water pump inside the V of the cylinders, does away with the cooling system pipes on the left side.
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 advantages of the belt are the low noise level, cleaning, reduced maintenance and fluid response to opening the gas, as befits a real cruiser.
Tyres and wheels
The XDiavel has 14-spoke wheels. At the front the wheel is 3.5″ x 17”, while at the back it is 8″ x 17”. XDiavel S, on the other hand, has exclusive curved 12-spoke wheels with visible finishings which highlight the design. On the front wheel is a traditional 120/70 ZR17 tyre with a redesigned tread to maximise performance in the wet, while the rear wheel is 240/45 ZR17. The covers are Pirelli Diablo Rosso II.
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.
If, on the other hand, you love the liberty of your XDiavel and the carefree feeling it inspires, you could choose the Touring kit. A refined “Supercomfort” saddle, a Roadster nose fairing and a handy magnetic tank-bag are all you need to climb on and let your sensations lead the way.
