The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini was born from the collaboration between two prestigious brands that have their roots in Motor Valley, the land in Emilia-Romagna within which can be found many of the world’s most significant companies in the automotive sector. A motorcycle made in a limited and numbered edition of 630 units and destined to win the hearts of motorcyclists and collectors from all over the world.
Unconventional, unique, unmistakable. The Diavel is the model of the Ducati range able to amaze enthusiasts with its personality, with the road behavior of a naked sport thanks to a thoroughbred sports engine and with its design, which has made it an icon of style and ‘Made in Italy’ and for which it has received prestigious international recognition such as the ‘Red Dot Award’ and ‘Good Design Award’.
Ducati and Lamborghini are Italian excellences that share values such as sportiness, attention to design and a meticulous devotion to detail. Starting from this common basis, the Ducati designers have chosen to be inspired in this special project by one of the most fascinating models of the Sant’Agata Bolognese company, the Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37.
Made starting from the base of the Diavel 1260 S, the Diavel Lamborghini was conceived by transferring the basic concepts of the design of the Siàn FKP 37 to the motorcycle world and by redesigning the components that most characterize the Diavel. First of all, the forged wheels, light and with a new design, which explicitly recall those of the car, but also the air intakes and radiator covers, made of carbon fiber, and designed by superimposing floating elements on the main structure of the bike.
The livery of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the result of the joint work between the Centro Stile Ducati and the Centro Stile Lamborghini. The paints applied to the bike are in fact exactly the same as those used for the Siàn FKP 37, with the bodywork characterized by the “Gea Green” color, while the frame, the undertray and the forged rims are embellished by the use of “Electrum Gold” color. The typical Ducati red is recalled by the coloring of the Brembo brake calipers.
Furthermore, the livery is characterized by the presence of 63, an important number for the Sant’Agata Bolognese company, which was founded in 1963. Multiplying this number by ten, you get the 630 numbered copies of the model that Ducati will produce.
Important identifying elements of Lamborghini design are the hexagon and the “Y” motif. This special version of the Diavel pays homage to the former in the shape of the exhaust and the latter thanks to the aesthetic details created on the seat.
All the details of the bike that have been redesigned by the Centro Stile Ducati for this specific project are made of a light and precious material such as carbon fiber, also in this case inspired by the car. In addition to the radiator covers and air intakes, the silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame are also made of carbon.
The heart of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT with variable timing. This Euro 5 homologated engine can deliver 162 hp at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm (13.2 kgm) at 7,500 rpm with a flat torque curve right from medium-low revs, which always guarantees a vigorous and energetic response.
Some of the key features of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini are the typical “power cruiser” riding position and ergonomics of the Diavel model, along with the exposed tubular steel trellis frame, the 240 mm wide rear tire, the single-sided aluminium swingarm and the fully adjustable Öhlins suspensions at the front and rear. The chassis guarantees high levels of handling and lean angles, but also an excellent level of comfort.
Sophisticated electronics ensure both high-level performance and maximum safety. Bosch’s 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) platform is able to instantly detect the speed and acceleration of the motorcycle and allows the operation of many of the control devices fitted to the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini. The electronic package includes Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC), Ducati Power Launch EVO (DPL) and Cruise Control.
The attention to detail applied to this model can be seen right from the start-up phase, when the logos of the two brands appear on the dashboard with the TFT screen, accompanied by the silhouette of the Diavel Lamborghini. With the bike it will also be possible to buy the helmet with special coordinated graphics, designed by the Centro Stile Ducati.
