Ducati Diavel 1260 Review Review

Ducati Diavel 1260 Overview

The Ducati Diavel 1260 was introduced in 2019 and is a naked bike capable of producing a powerful 156.9bhp and a maximum torque of 7,500rpm. This is because this Diavel was built around the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine and also features three riding modes and three different power modes, meaning you can personalise your ride.

This powerful machine was built with the purpose of combining both a sports bike feel and a comfortable ride. Often compared to the XDiavel due to them having the same engine, the Diavel differs due to the riding position.

Impressive features of the Diavel 1260, which we have come to expect from 2019 models, are the colour TFT dash, full LED lighting equipment, as well as the cornering ABS, all of which make your ride easier and more pleasurable.

The seat is relatively low, at 780mm, which gives it a bit of a cruiser feel and a more up right seating position when compared to the Ducati Monster.

This machine does not come cheap, with the price sitting at £16,795, though this is what we’ve come to expect for new bikes with the latest technology and bags of power.

I picked it up on Wednesday, fitted luggage and SatNav and rode it to Luxembourg. 1st service done Saturday pm in Luxembourg City and home on Tuesday after a total 1200 miles. Exceptional
Ride Quality
It’s a Ducati...
Build Quality & Reliability
Panel fit looks good. Too soon to tell on reliability but from previous experience Ducati have buried those gremlins
Engine Rating
Just astonishing
Brake Rating
As above, it’s astonishing for a big bike. Brembo M50s haul it up much quicker than you’d expect.
Running Cost
It’s going to be expensive, I could preface every comment box with ‘it’s a Ducati’. Surprisingly, fuel economy is good at nearly 60mpg
Pros CommentsLike I said - It’s a Ducati!!
Cons CommentsA better looking standard exhaust would save the expense of the full system.
