Ducati Diavel Strada

By Aric Mitchell on December 18, 2012

Project Diavel Strada from Ducati is not just another motorcycle. Featuring a twin L-cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder and 162 horsepower, this is a bike with some get-up-and-go for just two wheels. Capable of achieving 9,500 RPMs, you’ll be going 0 to 60 in a few short seconds. The 94 lb-ft of torque also lends to what is a stable bike with capable maneuverability around 500 pounds light.

The gearbox is six-speed with a clutch that is light on action and offers smooth hydraulic controls. Holding it all together is a tubular steel, Trellis-frame chassis, and two 14-spoke wheels comprised of light alloy with 4.7-inch front and rear travel. All this in a two-seater package with LCD display and handlebar-mounted instrumentation. Whether you’re hitting the road alone or with your favorite companion, this bike is a lady who lets you lead the dance.
