Unconventional, unique, unmistakable. That’s how Ducati have described their brand new Diavel 1260 Lamborghini motorcycle, and they are absolutely spot on. The automotive legends from Italy, situated in Emilia-Romagna in the north of the country and previous hosts of the Italian Grand Prix, have joined forces for a stunning collaboration and produced a machine of a motorbike.
Inspired by the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 supercar, the Diavel 1260 looks sharp and slick and boasts the 1262cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine, with 9,500rpm and offers 157 horsepower.
Coming in a Gea Green, just like the motor counterpart it’s based on, with an Electrum Gold frame, it oozes an electrifying amount of class.
The wheels are boosted by lightweight forged rims which is a theme throughout the entire creation with the bike coming in at just 485lbs, thanks to much of the body, including the spoiler and headlight frame, being made from carbon fibre. The lighter the bike, the faster it goes and the better the ride.
Andrea Ferraresi, Director of the Centro Stile Ducati said of the latest model, “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.”
Sporty is the word, with the saddle featuring a Y and the hexagon-exhaust styles, which have characterised Lamborghini since the start back in 1963.
Dubbed as an iconic motorcycle and one for the enthusiasts, it is “destined to win the hearts of motorcyclists and collectors from all over the world”, say Ducati. With that in mind, only 630 will be produced, while the number 63 will be etched on the body to mark the year the brand was founded.
Available at the end of the year, the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini motorcycle would be a perfect purchase for 2021 and will cost £27,795.
