Ducati has launched its performance oriented cruiser the XDiavel in India, at Rs 15.87 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). They also launched the XDiavelS priced at Rs 18.47 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The XDiavelS gets Brembo M50 brakes and a gloss black finish while the XDiavel comes in matte black paint option.
The Ducati XDiavel also gets a TFT screen with four different display modes, whereas the XDiavelS is equipped with Bluetooth module that lets riders view incoming calls, text messages and music playlists via their smartphone.
The XDiavel is powered by Ducati's 1,262 cc Testastretta DVT engine which is capable of delivering 156 hp and almost 129 Nm of torque that comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. The company promises 'low-speed excitement' which is due to the fact that the bike can deliver peak torque at as low RPM as 5,000 RPM. Interestingly, the XDiavel is a belt-driven motorcycle, which means that powered is delivered to the rear wheel via a belt and not a chain, like regular cruisers but is a first for Ducati.
It has three riding modes – Sport, Touring and Urban. In terms of electronics the bike is fitted with Ducati Safety pack (ABS+EBD), Ride by Wire, Traction Control and a 'Launch Control' system for those quick 0-100 km/h sprint times. Keeping up with tradition, high-end cruisers, the bike also has a cruise control.
