Power has gone up by 4hp, but the peak torque figure has dropped by around 2Nm.

Ducati has revealed its Euro 5 (BS6) compliant XDiavel. The big performance cruiser is also available in two new variants - Dark and Black Star.

  • It continues to use the Testastretta 1262cc, L-twin engine

  • Makes 4hp more, but 2Nm less.

  • Two new variants - Dark and Black Star

2021 Ducati XDiavel Variants

For 2021, Ducati’s XDiavel is available in a total of three variants - S, Dark and Black Star. The S nearly identical to the older bike in terms of its styling with silver details on the engine casing and wheels.

The new Dark variant features a matte black colour scheme that can be found not only on the body work, but other components as well. For instance, this variant doesn’t have the silver highlight seen on the S variants and other components that would be silver are also blacked-out on this variant.

Like the Dark, the new Black Star variant is quite stealthy as well. However, instead of a complete matte black paint scheme, it features areas finished in grey with a contrasting red stripe. The Black Star variant also features a suede seat cover with red stitching.

Another difference between the three variants is the kerb weight. At 223kg, the S weighs 2kg more than the Dark and Black Star variants.

Powering all three XDiavel variants is a Euro 5 (BS6) compliant, Testastretta 1262cc, L-twin engine that produces 160hp of peak power and 127Nm of torque. For reference, the older XDiavel made 156hp and 128.9Nm of torque. Tech on board includes a ride-by-wire throttle, cornering ABS, traction control, Ducati Power Launch (DPL), cruise control and hands-free ignition.
