Ducati presents the new and upgraded version of its Diavel “cruiser” for 2015, featuring an updated version of its predecessor’s 11-degree Testastretta engine, updated cosmetic details, and a new exhaust system. The engine upgrades come from the brand’s Dual Spark design; the engine now boasts dual spark plugs in each of its four-valve heads. The bike produces 96.3 pound-feet of torque and the same 162 horsepower as the previous model, but gets to its peak power sooner at 8000 rpm. Additionally, the bike features Ducati Traction Control, three ride modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), an LED headlamp, and LED turn signals. It also still gets a Marzocchi fork, Sachs rear shock and Brembo mono-block brakes. The 2015 Ducati Diavel will come in two versions, the standard version will sell for $17,995 USD with the Carbon version retailing for $20,995 USD. The new bikes are expected to be available in April.
