The new Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini motorcycle has been revealed as the latest cooperative effort from the two Italian brands. This new motorcycle will be limited to just 630 examples and it looks to be an instant-buy for fans of both companies.
When designing the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, Ducati used the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 as inspiration. The livery of the bike, green and gold, comes straight from the example Lamborghini used to reveal the new model. In fact, the paint on the bike is the same as found on the supercar– Verde Gea and Electrum Gold. Ducati even went to far as to design the rims after the Sian FKP 37’s wheels and the resemblance is uncanny.
“In creating a Diavel inspired by the Siàn, we are celebrating the values we share with Lamborghini: we are Italian, we are sporty, and design is a distinctive element for our creations,” says Andrea Ferraresi, Director of the Centro Stile Ducati. “The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini was designed using the same stylistic language that distinguishes the super sports car, so we have redesigned the elements that most characterize the Diavel.
For the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, Centro Stile Ducati redesigned quite a few details. These changes are all made of carbon fiber and include the radiator covers, air intakes, silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame. Not only does this material look great when bare, it also allows the bike to shed some weight.
Powering the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT. This engine is capable of producing 157 horsepower and 9,500 rpm and 95 lb-ft of torque at 7,500 rpm. When you combine this power with a dry weight of just 485 lbs, this bike is the recipe for a great ride.
If you’re interested, the new Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini will have a starting price tag of $31,995. Be sure to contact your local Ducati dealership for more information.
