When two tech powerhouses collaborate, then you expect something magnificent to come out of it. That’s exactly what happened when Ducati and Diesel came together to create the super road monster known as the Ducati Diavel Diesel.
Since 2011, Ducati and the jeans brand Diesel have been collaborating on a number of fronts, including cross-promoting each other’s products. The special relationship began with Diesel sponsoring the motorbike manufacturer’s efforts during the 2011 MotoGP Championship. Today, that business association has grown into the building of the new superbike dubbed the Ducati Monster Diesel.
With the kind of naming that has been adopted for this line of superbikes, some people have come to believe that the tank-colored bike’s tank is actually fired by diesel as fuel. However, now that the combination of Ducati and Diesel in a single name has been around for some time, we don’t expect many people will be repeating that mistake with the new Ducati Diavel Diesel.
With the kind of power emanating from the Ducati Diavel Diesel’s engines, you won’t be blamed for thinking that the power cruiser is probably fueled by fire and brimstone! Only 666 units of the new super monster are set for production.
It’s now clear that what both Ducati and Diesel wanted out of their limited edition collaboration was a bit of an edgier machine. We can now exclusively reveal this because of the use of phrases such as “post-apocalyptic”, “hyperkinetic dynamism” and “retro-futuristic world” in the Ducati Diavel Diesel’s press release.
And, by the way, did you know that “Diavel” means devil in the Bolognese dialect spoken in Ducati’s home region in Italy?
Naming and descriptions aside, the Ducati Diavel Diesel is quite an interesting design as it brings together collaborative ideas from the two renowned brands.
The bike features hand-brushed stainless steel panels welded and riveted together. Also featured are some intriguing pieces designed for both the exhaust and the seat. Brake calipers and five links on the drive chain have gotten a nice red painting.
All hail the demonic superbike as the Ducati Diavel Diesel takes to the road!
