Key Specs of Diavel
Ducati Diavel Highlights
Since 2009, the Ducati Diavel has been the most aggressive cruiser that one can buy. It gave the potential cruiser buyer a spicier option than the mellow traditional American options. It got a few editions along the way, like the Diavel Diesel and Diavel Carbon. But the Diavel will be phased out soon as it will make way for a more powerful Diavel 1260 (more info on the 1260 here). Diavel will still be sold until the second quarter of 2019. It is likely that a few Ducati dealers will be selling the Diavel either at a good discounted price or offer several accessories to sweeten the deal.
