Ducati presents XDiavel Nera, a special motorcycle in which “Made in Italy” design and craftsmanship are uniquely combined with technology and innovation.
From the collaboration of two world ambassadors of “Made in Italy” style, such as Ducati and the House Poltrona Frauan exciting project sprang up: the Ducati XDiavel Black. This particular motorcycle was presented to the public in the seventh episode – and first for the new year – of the online series Ducati World Premiere 2022.
The brand new XDiavel Black expresses the common values of the two companies: the passion for design, the tradition in craftsmanship, the use of cutting-edge technologies and the superiority in innovation. The result is a motorcycle unique in character and aesthetic quality, which exudes Italian design, which will be produced in a numbered version that will be limited to 500 motorcycles.
Ducati’s collaboration with Poltrona Frau, and especially the Interiors in Motion division, is not new. Ducati has collaborated with the famous House, with a leading presence in the field of luxury furniture manufacturing, in the Ducati Scrambler Club Italia project. The Interiors in Motion department specializes in the creation, manufacture and supply of unique leather interiors in the leading sectors of the automotive industry, aviation, rail transport and yachting.
The new XDiavel Nera is characterized by the “Black on Black” look in which the various sections are either in glossy black or matte black. This look adds even more sporty character to XDiavelwhich is also reflected in the special open helmet (jet), which the owners of XDiavel Black have the ability to order along with the motorcycle. Some stylistic details have also been added to the bike that make it look even more impressive, such as the Ducati Red brake calipers and bonnet caps and the light alloy forged wheels painted in glossy black.
The most recognizable part of the XDiavel Nera is the special saddle by Pelle Frau®: a soft, natural hand-crafted leather, a product of Poltrona Frau’s research years. The saddle is available in 5 different colors (Siam Red, Steel Blue, Cemento, India and Selva) and is personalized with a series of letters “X”, which are engraved with a state-of-the-art laser process and refer to the name of the motorcycle.
The Ducati XDiavel is a motorcycle with a strong character which focuses heavily on the philosophy of personalization. In this project, the possibility of personalization is expressed through the selection of the desired color for the saddle, to which are added a wider, more comfortable saddle and a back, also made of Pelle Frau leather.®which are suitable for travel with a passenger, without sacrificing style.
The 500 Ducati fans who order the XDiavel Nera will also get an exclusive keychain and a Pelle Frau leather document case®in the same color as the one selected for the saddle.
XDiavel is the result of the intersection of two seemingly different and distant worlds. On the one hand, the characteristic relaxed cruiser available at low speeds and on the other hand, the sporty driving and the impressive performance of Ducati. The perfect expression of this combination is the features of the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, which, in combination with the transmission through a belt, ensures a smooth transfer of power at low speeds and a smooth curve up to the highest speeds. THE Testastretta DVT 1262clearly visible in the center of the motorcycle, is adapted to Euro5 specifications and delivers maximum power of 160 hp at 9,500 rpm. and maximum torque of 13.0 kg at 5,000 rpm.
The XDiavel Nera has a powerful braking system equipped with ABS Cornering function. At the front there are one-piece Brembo M50 calipers and two 320 mm discs, while at the back we find a single 265 mm disc.
The lighting system is full LED with Daylight Running Light (DRL) system at the front, which is easily recognizable and gives a particularly striking appearance. A number of assistance and safety systems (including the Ducati Traction Control – DTC, Cruise Control and Ducati Power Launch – DPL), make the XDiavel Nera a technologically advanced, safe high-performance motorcycle. The electronic systems are integrated with the two-level instrument panel with TFT color screen and special key-on, in addition to the open listening system, so that the rider can use the motorcycle with the key in his pocket or bag.
XDiavel has a lot of customization options, plus Ducati Performance accessories.
The XDiavel Nera will be available in Greece upon special order from March 2022 and for as long as stock is available.
The video presentation of the Ducati XDiavel Nera is available on the Ducati YouTube channel, along with a video of the shooting and a dynamic video of the motorcycle.
