1 of 2

The limited-edition Ducati Diavel Titanium is now in production and the first examples of the 500 being built are arriving in UK dealers.

The Diavel Titanium is a new range-topping model for the muscle cruiser that continues to sell in big numbers around the world and the special edition model gets a host of carbon fibre, billet aluminium and carbon fibre parts.

Just 500 examples of the Titanium are being built with only a small percentage of those coming to the UK.

Ducati’s press release explains: “Built using only the finest components and featuring plenty of exclusive details, the Diavel Titanium, in addition to inheriting the undisputed dynamic performance common to all the other models in the Diavel family, embodies a style that merges design, performance and technology.

“The defining feature of this Diavel, which gives the bike such an extraordinary combination of strength and lightness, is titanium. The broad tank covers (side and central) and headlamp cover are both made of this exceptional metal which has been specially banded and chemically satin-etched to create a host of different chromatic shades. On the passenger seat cover, redesigned and widened on this version, the titanium is combined with carbon fibre.

“Carbon fibre has also been used to make the redesigned air intakes, now wider and more powerful-looking, giving the Diavel Titanium a sharper, more aggressive look. The radiator covers, micro-screen, front and rear mudguards, front sprocket cover and filler cap cover are also made of carbon fibre.

“Taking exclusivity to the next level, the hand-stitched seat made of Alcantara is embellished with leather inserts. The aesthetics also benefit from a dark chrome finish on the frame, while another key styling detail on the Diavel Titanium takes the form of a high-grade, matt black ceramic coating on the exhaust pipes. Completing this special edition are the exceptional machine-finished forged wheels in exposed aluminium, designed to make the Diavel Titanium unquestionably unique.

To underline the exclusive value of this limited edition, each Diavel Titanium will sport an individually numbered tank-mounted plaque (XXX/500).”
