Four-times World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty has just picked up a Ducati Diavel and he will be keeping it through the summer months.

Foggy has borrowed a black Diavel from Ducati Manchester and reckons he will be calling the dealership every day for the next few weeks to be reminded how the bike works thanks to the array of technology fitted.

The Diavel is Ducati’s new 162bhp sports cruiser model which has a 1200cc V-twin, ABS, traction control, three riding modes and is already proving to be a sales hit around the world.

Foggy told MCN: “I’m really looking forward to it. Everyone says they are brilliant fun but I will find out for myself on the ride back home today. I just hope it doesn’t rain too much! It’s got more power than some of the bikes I used to race.”

Check back later as MCN is calling Foggy back for an initial verdict on the bike.
