2021 Ducati XDiavel: design
Internationally, Ducati has launched the XDiavel in three variants- S, Black Star and Dark, the last two being the new additions.
The Ducati XDiavel Black Star variant features a lovely black and silver paint job on the large fuel tank, with a red stripe dividing the two colours. The Black Star variant also features a suede seat cover with red stitching.
The XDiavel Dark, meanwhile, features a matte black colour scheme that can be found not only on the body work, but other components as well. It adds to the stealth look of the motorcycle.
The ‘S’ variant looks similar to the previous XDiavel, replete with the silver highlights on the wheels.
While the XDiavel is based on the 2021 Ducati Diavel 1260, that recently went on sale in India, it gets a new seat and forward set pegs, in true cruiser motorcycle fashion. The XDiavel’s seat height, at 755mm, is lower than the Diavel 1260’s at 780mm.
2021 Ducati XDiavel: engine and electronics
Powering the 2021 Ducati XDiavel is a 160hp, 1,262cc, L-twin liquid-cooled engine. Peak Power has gone up by 4hp, but the peak torque figure has dropped by around 2Nm. That said, 80 percent of the torque is available from 2,100rpm. This improves rideability and suits the character of a cruiser, says Ducati.
As expected from a bike of its class, the Ducati XDiavel is loaded with electronics. The list includes IMU based cornering traction control, cornering ABS and Ducati Power launch.
