2018 Ducati XDiavel will be offered in a new colour scheme
Ducati has unveiled the 2018 Ducati XDiavel S at a new “Iceberg White” color shade. This is the first time the XDiavel version has been offered without a dark color scheme. The 2018 Ducati XDiavel S scope is going to be showcased at the Faker See custom display event in Austria, also offers upgraded suspension, which is believed to provide more comfort for both rider and pillion. The Ducati XDiavel is powered with a 1262 cc v-twin Testastretta engine that makes 156 bhp of greatest power at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm.
The Ducati XDiavel carries forward the Ducati Diavel lineage with more conspicuous cruiser elements, such as the forward set foot hooks, and also cruiser-like riding stance. At heart, however, it’s still a Ducati, and packs some serious firepower. In a way, the XDiavel S is Ducati’s response to the cruiser motorcycle section, and has won a number of international awards for its unique styling and design.
Throughout our review, the Ducati XDiavel did prove to be stiffly sprung, and for our street conditions, the suspension did feel somewhat on the rocky side. So, the new, updated suspension will definitely be welcome. There is no word yet on pricing and when the 2018 range will eventually go on sale.
