Default Limited-edition Ducati Diavel Diesel launched

Ducati has launched a limited edition Diavel Diesel worldwide and it is available in India as well. There are going to be only 666 numbers available and each of the vehicle will be numbered.

Quoting from the source :

Quote:
The Diavel Diesel is made unique by details in hand-brushed steel with visible welds and rivets, like the tank cover, the headlight fairing and the passenger seat cover. The visible welds also appear on the anodised black side conveyors with a red methacrylate centre cover bearing an embedded Diesel logo. The red colour is also found on the LCD instrument panel, the front brake callipers and five chain links. The pipes of the exhaust system feature a Zircotec black ceramic coating. The silencers with billet endcaps are also black.

Was a good conversation starter in the office yesterday, with people excited about the return of diesel engines in bikes, ever since the glorious old days of the RE Taurus.

Some of them were shocked by the price, but none really did seem to think about the possibility of it being brand "Diesel" instead.

Same here!
I wont be surprised if fuel attendants turn up asking petrol or diesel saar, looking at the Diesel decal/stickers.

For a moment, I thought its gonna feature a Diesel motor and in the time gap when the page was loading, was even wondering if they would have added a turbo and whether it would be a common rail system.

I wonder who would be the lucky owner of the 666th vehicle. It can most aptly be named the 'Number of the Beast'.

Italians love making diesels - Fiat

Additionally, Ducati is now owned by VW AG, probably they are trying to dispose off 666 emission plagued diesel engines this way.

Actually this is the same petrol engine doing duty as on Diavel. The bike was a result of collaboration between the Ducati Design Centre and Andrea Rosso, Diesel Licensing Creative Director and its mostly to do with the changes in the look of the vehicle than anything else.
