The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini looks great in real life
In November of last year, Italian bicycle maker Ducati broke the mold by removing the wraps from a Diavel variant meant to honor parent company Lamborghini. We’re talking about a limited production like the one we won’t all get to see in metal, let alone experience it firsthand. Thank God for Youtube, then, and the rich vloggers.
It seems that deliveries of the two-wheeler have already started. Below this text is a video published a few days ago by the London Supercars Youtube channel, whose owner leaves a Nissan GT-R (he makes sure to mention it at every opportunity) to take possession of the two-wheeler in Cambridge.
And it must be said that the thing is breathtaking in real life, perhaps even more so than in the press photos released last year. Unfortunately, we can’t see it moving and hear it roar.
This Diavel has been designed to replicate some of the design cues featured on the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37. Its sporty wheels are meant to remind those of the car, carbon fiber is widely used on air intakes, radiator covers and the center tank cover, among others, plus, of course, the Lambo’s signature paintwork.
The bike weighs 220 kg (485 pounds) and gets its forward motion from a 1,262 cc Testastretta DVT engine rated at 162 hp at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm (95 lb-ft) at 7,500 rpm.
Another nod to Sian is the number of bikes that will be made. Lambo pledged to produce 63 Sian supercars, but that was a small number when it came to motorcycles, so Ducati went for 630 instead.
