Ducati has launched the XDiavel in India at Rs 15.8 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The only cruiser in the company’s line-up, this motorcycle is available in two versions – XDiavel and XDiavel S, with the latter sporting a price tag of Rs 18.4 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Ducati XDiavel and the XDiavel S, despite sharing the moniker with the Diavel are very different from the power cruiser. They are built around a brand new steel tubular trellis frame with a single-sided swingarm. The exhaust system is tucked under the engine, and flaunts the artistic rear wheel. It gets a 3.5-inch digital display mounted below the handlebar, which shows information about the rider aids and electronics along with other basic functionalities. The ergonomics have been designed to offer a laid back riding position. Ducati offers XDiavel customers the option to choose between five seats, three different handlebars and four footrest positions.

Both the XDiavel and XDiavel S are powered by a Testastretta L-Twin engine, borrowed from the Ducati Multistrada. This state of the art 1262cc liquid-cooled mill delivers 155bhp and 129Nm of torque through a belt drive, a first for Ducati. . The 17-inch wheels ride on adjustable 50mm inverted front forks and an offset rear monoshock with preload and rebound adjustability. The electronics package includes cornering ABS, traction control, rider modes and a launch control system. The XDiavel S gets a different set of wheels, a bluetooth module, infotainment system and a more premium seat over the standard bike.

Paint options for the XDiavel and the XDiavel S are limited to black, though the latter comes in a glossy paint as opposed to the former’s matte finish. With this price tag, the XDiavel will rival the likes of Triumph Thunderbird Storm and the Harley-Davidson Breakout.
