DIAVEL STRADA

The power keeps on flowing

£15,750

Overview

The exuberance of the Diavel meets maximum comfort. Innovative solutions and dedicated accessories – side bags, windshield, new seat and raised handlebars – make the Diavel Strada ideal to dominate the asphalt on the open road.

Diavel concept

The Diavel project was born when Ducati designers applied their wish-list of bike “basic instincts” to a blank canvas. With a “what if?” approach to creating a dream bike, they sketched inspiring shapes which became a lower and longer motorcycle. “The challenge of building a muscular silhouette over a pure-bred competition motor had to be met with determination and a delicate touch, and the result is a frontal area that looks like a power athlete on the starting blocks,” explains the team at Ducati Design responsible for the project. “With the front wheel kept close to the Diavel’s body and using the short tail of a sport bike, we were able to blend this muscular design with a chassis that matched.”

Engine

The Diavels heart is the Ducati Testastretta 11° – developed directly from the incredibly powerful, world-beating race engines of Ducati Corse. Ducati’s Testastretta 11° harnesses the immense power of the Superbike engine and makes it smooth and adaptable, a massive step forward in balancing high-performance with an enjoyable ride. For an engine with brute power on tap when needed and smooth, user-friendliness available for an effortless and comfortable ride, Ducati revised the configuration of the cam timing with particular focus on the valve overlap angle. The overlap angle is defined as the interval of crankshaft rotation, measured in degrees, during which both the intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time. This overlap occurs between the end of the exhaust stroke and the start of the intake stroke. High performance engines, which are subject to compromising smoothness for extreme power delivery, use high values of this parameter in order to benefit from the pressure waves to improve engine performance by maximising volumetric efficiency. On the Testastretta 11° engine, this angle has been reduced from 41°, used in the Testastretta Evoluzione engine which powers the 1198, to 11°. As a result, the fresh inlet charge flow is less compromised by the exiting exhaust gases, resulting in a much smoother combustion in addition to improved fuel economy and lower exhaust emissions.

Chassis

The low seat height at 770 mm makes the bike accessible to everyone. In addition, new ergonomic parameters offer the rider an unprecedented level of comfort and control. The special shape of the tourer seat ensures great comfort, while the handlebar has been raised by 15 and moved back by 60 mm mm to promote a straighter, more relaxing riding position.

Equipment

The tourer character of the Diavel Strada is enhanced by details designed to improve the travel experience of rider and passenger. Heated grips improve comfort in adverse weather conditions, whereas new fixed pillion rider footpegs, luggage system with integrated grab rails and dedicated backrest increase stability and passenger comfort.
The new, broader touring windscreen blends seamlessly into the aggressive silhouette of the Diavel Strada and affords excellent wind protection, offering an enhanced feeling of comfort. Comfort is brought to the next level by new ergonomics based on the dedicated tourer seat and the new handlebar, which is raisedby 15 mm and moved back by 60mm to ensure total, relaxed control for superior riding pleasure.
