The Diavel Titanium features elements made from the motorcycle industry’s highest-quality materials. The defining feature on this Diavel is titanium, chosen on account of its extraordinary strength and lightness. The broad tank covers (central and side) and headlamp cover are made of titanium, which, in this instance, has been banded and chemically satinetched to provide unique nuances of color. On the passenger seat cover, redesigned and widened for this special version, titanium has been combined with carbon fiber. Carbon fiber has been used to make the redesigned air intakes, now wider and more powerful-looking. The radiator covers, micro windscreen, front and rear mudguards, front sprocket cover and filler cap surround are also made of carbon fiber.
The Diavel Titanium’s exhaust pipes stand out on account of their high-grade Zircotech black ceramic coating. The silencers - made of brushed stainless steel - stylishly complete the colour contrast on the exhaust while the rear view mirrors are black and machined from solid aluminium. Exclusivity is enhanced even further by the hand-stitched seat made of Alcantara® embellished with leather inserts, a dedicated plaque, and dark chrome finish on the frame. Completing the version are the extraordinary dedicated machine-finished forged wheels. (TotalMotorcycle.com). Performance estimates: 0 to 60 mph: 2.6 seconds Top speed of 180+ mph.
How did they come up with the name? The name was decided when an unnamed Ducati engineer first saw the prototype's 240mm-wide rear tire and exclaimed "ignurant comm al diavel!" This translates to "evil, just like a devil!" in the Bolognese dialect local to Ducati's Borgo Panigale factory.
