Ducati has done it again with the new 2023 Diavel V4, now available to test ride at ProTwins in Surrey. This new iteration of the Diavel is a perfect synthesis of sport nakeds and muscle cruisers, with a muscular, sporty, exaggerated, and elegant design that will turn heads wherever you go.
At the center of this new beast is the V4 Granturismo engine, the undisputed protagonist of the Diavel philosophy. It guarantees high performance, combined with smoothness and regularity, at every rpm. The Diavel V4 features a chassis with a monocoque frame and single-sided swingarm, both made of aluminum, which combined with the lightness of the V4 Granturismo results in a kerb weight without fuel of 223 kg, for a saving of more than 13 kg compared to the Diavel 1260 S. This weight reduction translates to noticeably improved handling and agility.
The Diavel V4 also features an unmistakable design, with a broad-shouldered, four-exit exhaust and retractable passenger footpegs and rear grab bar. The LED daytime running light at the front has a double-C shape, while the rear light cluster consists of an array of point LEDs under the tail, with a highly original design that repeats the double C of the DRL.
Enthusiasts who wish to enhance the touring capabilities of their Diavel V4 will find many options in the Ducati Performance catalog, such as semi-rigid cases with a total capacity of 48 liters, a passenger backrest, and a touring plexi. The sportier side of the Diavel V4 can be amplified with the street-legal exhaust silencer with a cover and four titanium end caps, billet parts, carbon parts, dry clutch (for racing use only), forged wheels, and brake calipers in red or black.
The Ducati Diavel V4 is born to be a protagonist, at ease among city curves and urban glamour as well as performing on mountain roads. The low center of gravity typical of cruisers makes it capable of surprising acceleration and deceleration. But it is with the new V4 Granturismo engine and the electronic setting of a sport naked that every ride becomes fun, performance, and adrenaline.
In conclusion, if you're in the market for a powerful, agile, and stylish motorcycle that stands out from the crowd, the Ducati Diavel V4 is definitely worth a test ride. Head over to ProTwins in Surrey to experience it for yourself and customize it to your heart's desire with the many options available in the Ducati Performance catalog.
