Ducati Diavel – what do YOU want to know?

MCN is riding Ducati’s eagerly-anticipated new Diavel ‘power cruiser’ for the first time this weekend but what do YOU want to know about it? Do you wonder most about its performance or accessory options? How it handles or how effective its electronic options are? Or is there anything else that most needs to be answered? Respond with your questions here, or email...

Does it embody Ducati's values, quality & performance or is it a departure equivalent to Porsche's abomination, the Cayenne... i.e. will other Ducati riders laugh at it?

i want to know

how does it fair against the streetfighter and/or Multistrada (acceleration, handling, braking, ride quality)?   how comfortable is it (leg room, reach to bars, etc)?  is it more of a relaxed streetfighter or performance cruiser?  my 63 year old father with bum knees and shoulder is looking for a new, lighter, bike and is very interested in this since I brought it to his attention.

different sensations?

I want to know if it is ballanced/handles well, if it feels too heavy, or if that fat back tire ruins a good idea.  I also want to know how it feels to be down low in the machine if it does handle well.  Could be quite a neat feeling, or it could dull the sensations from one or both ends?

Price and performance

Two things:

 

1) How much will it cost?

2) Will it be difficult to control with all that raw power or will it be a sweet ride?

This average 5ft11 bloke...

...sat on one at the bike show, and would like to know why the pegs are so high when the seat is so low. Or why the seat is so low when the pegs are so high? Or whatever. And where are the pillion grab handles? It's a cruiser (albeit a performance one), but where's the comfort?
