Ducati has just revealed the new Diavel Carbon. The 2016 version of the bike is now more assertive than ever thanks to all-new graphics and several technical-aesthetic features. The new Diavel Carbon comes in new grey and carbon colours with red stripes and black chrome paintwork. From the technical side of view, Ducati added a Zircotec coating on the exhaust manifolds and brushed effect stainless steel silencers. The bike will be available from October 2015.
The Diavel Carbon is Ducati’s most badass-looking bike on its line-up at the moment. For the next model year, the bike will look even more evil.
The most obvious change is the paintwork. The updated Diavel Carbon features a combination of black and grey tones and very few shiny surfaces. Thanks to the new Asphalt Grey colour, the bike looks evil and we like it. The frame has the Dark Chrome paintwork with red stripes while there are only a few shiny areas like the new Zircotec exhaust system with ceramic coating and stainless steel silencer covers.
Ducati didn’t announce other technical changes. At the heart of the bike is still the latest generation Testastretta 11° DS engine with ABS and traction control. The dual spark engine has a maximum output of 162hp while wet weight is just 205kg (452 lb.)
In addition to the new Carbon version, th Diavel will also be available in the total black Dark Stealth version, with matt black tank, black frame and wheels.
