Yes, that tank always reminds me of the Alien from the film of same name.
Yes, i've seen the bike in reality and no, it's not bad.
However, the prices are, seems biking is now for the well-to-do's and rich, unless you plump for the lower pleb and working class section, i.e CB500, NC 700, etc.
Not bad bikes in their own right i supose but, don't set the heart a flutter do they.
Anyhow,this Diavel (WHO, in their right mind, names a bike after an evil entity i.e DEVIL?) would benefit from a name change for starters and repositioning that hideous number plate holder, which ruins the effect of that massive rear donut being there.
One other thing, everytime the manufacturer refines their products, it's always last year's model that is made redundant. I mean, Ducati have re-jigged the engine to spread the servicing times/cost and upped the torque.. Why didn't Ducati make sure 3 years back the service costs/intervals would be lower as with this new refined model?
They bring these products out testing them on a gullible public, thn re-jig them hoping the punter will trade it in for the latest, therefore spending more money.
