The Ducati Diavel Lamborghini will be limited to 630 units – because Lamborghini was founded in 1963 – each with a number plaque on the frame and a swathe of carbon fibre components including slightly reworked air intakes.

The bike is finished in a colour called Gea green and is the same as the paint on the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 unveiled last year. This car is also the inspiration for the gold frame and rims and the hexagonal carbon exhaust tips. Read more about the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 on sister title CAR magazine.
