Ducati notes that consumers will obtain the bike in a customized wooden case together with a certificates of authenticity, a motorbike cowl, and a passenger seat. The 2 firms additionally collaborated on a variety of equipment that features a helmet and a limited-edition jacket.
Becoming the Diavel with Bentley’s 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine seemingly wasn’t an possibility, so energy comes from a inventory, 1.2-liter V4 rated at 168 horsepower and 93 pound-feet of torque. If neither determine sounds spectacular, be mindful the usual Diavel weighs 520 kilos. Put one other means, its power-to-weight ratio approaches that of a Bugatti Chiron. It is the two-wheel equal of a supercar.
Ducati will construct 500 items of the Diavel for Bentley. If that is not uncommon sufficient, it’ll make 50 extra examples of a model named Diavel for Bentley Mulliner that is reserved for Bentley clients. They will notably have a broader scope of customization choices to select from.
