Jay Leno has always been a Ducati fan, which is exemplified by his collection of Ducati bikes from the 1964 Monza to the 1986 Ducati 900 SS and the 1984 Hailwood Replica. Naturally, with this much affinity for the brand, Leno is psyched to find out what Ducati is creating now, and to learn more about the newest bike for the maker, Leno brings in Ducati North America CEO, Jason Chinnock.
Chinnock describes the new Ducati XDiavel S as the brands first cruiser style bike. Chinnock states in the motorcycle maker wanted to build a cruiser to deliver what people expect from said style bike– comfort– without compromising the performance Ducati is known for. The XDiavel S delivers 1262 cc’s and 156 horsepower. The motorcycle is Ducati’s version of a powerful, performance-oriented cruiser.
