Ducati have unveiled their new Diavel Strada, which is being shown for the first time at the EICMA, in Milan. The bike is powered by the same 162bhp Testastretta V-twin as the other Diavels (Carbon and Dark), weighs 205kg dry and features the same electronics package, which includes ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire and selectable riding modes. However, the Diavel Strada has been further optimized for long-distance touring comfort, with a windscreen, higher handlebars, heated grips and two auxiliary power outlets for heated clothing and/or navigation accessories.

The 2013 Ducati Diavel Strada also gets a rear seat backrest and grabrails for added passenger comfort, and a set of beautifully styled side-mounted panniers for 41 litres of luggage carrying capacity. The bike also gets an exclusive titanium colour scheme with black-painted frame and wheels.
