Ducati Diavel

In Canada, the manufacturers tour the country every spring giving potential buyers a chance to test rider their bikes. During Ducati days this weekend I had a chance to ride Ducati's uber cruiser the Diavel (Italian I think for devil). That bike is a rocket and I was amazed with the big back tire how well it handles. It completely blows the doors off any other cruiser I have ridden in both the straight aways and in the twisties. Not much of a long distance tourer, but it would be a great bike for afternoon rides. Somehow I need one of these, just can't figure out how to justify it??

Re: Ducati Diavel

I test rode a Diavel at my local dealer and agree. A totally fun bike, very powerful and surprisingly good in twisties.

Re: Ducati Diavel

0-60 times in the low 2's. If you buy a bike like this you might as well go to the closest police station and turn yourself in.
