2015 Ducati Diavel Titanium limited to 500 units


Mechanically, the Ducati Diavel Titanium remains unchanged - it's the same 162bhp musclebike that we know and love. Cosmetically, it gets a subtle new paintjob and a bunch of carbonfibre bits. Nice!

Ducati have announced the new limited-edition Diavel Titanium for 2015 – production of this machine will be limited to 500 units only. Basic specs remain unchanged – 1198cc Testastretta 11° ‘Dual Spark’ V-twin (with two sparkplugs per cylinder head) that produces 162 horsepower and 130Nm of torque, 205kg dry weight, that infamous 240-section rear tyre, three riding modes, full LED headlamp and a full suite of safety electronics, including anti-lock brakes and traction control.

Exclusive bits on the 2015 Diavel Titanium include the paintjob (Titanium, with dark chrome chassis), forged aluminium black-painted wheels, carbon passenger seat cover with Titanium insert and various carbonfibre parts, including engine air intakes, radiator covers, windscreen, front and rear mudguard and front sprocket cover. The hand-stitched Alcantara seats get leather inserts, the silencers are stainless steel and exhaust pipes get a Zircotech ceramic lining. Each bike gets an individually numbered tank-mounted plaque – just to make sure that nobody forgets this is a limited edition Ducati! :-)
