Ducati Extremes—Diavel 1260 And MIG-RR

Ducati Extremes—Diavel 1260 And MIG-RR Production begins on two Ducatis that couldn’t be more different. Ducati is always full of surprises, and we love her for that. These days the Bologna-based company is about to put on the market what appears to be two models set at the opposite extremes of the two-wheeled vehicle world. On one side, off the Borgo Panigale assembly lines are rolling the first units of the new edition Diavel 1260, the meanest, most powerful cruiser from Bologna. Unveiled at EICMA 2018, the new Diavel is a more “Ducatized” interpretation of the power cruiser theme.

Ducati is always full of surprises, and we love her for that. These days the Bologna-based company is about to put on the market what appears to be two models set at the opposite extremes of the two-wheeled vehicle world. On one side, off the Borgo Panigale assembly lines are rolling the first units of the new edition Diavel 1260, the meanest, most powerful cruiser from Bologna. Unveiled at EICMA 2018, the new Diavel is a more “Ducatized” interpretation of the power cruiser theme.

The new chassis features a steeper steering geometry (27-degree rake), a more balanced weight distribution bias, and more generous ground clearance for that sporty ride that must always be associated with the Ducati name. In addition, the new Diavel adopts an updated version of the most sophisticated edition of the Testastretta V-twin, the 1,260cc DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) that delivers 159 hp at 9,500 rpm, with 95.2 peak pound-feet of torque at 7,500 rpm. One top of to the very sophisticated desmo variable timing, this unit now features twin spark ignition and secondary air induction to make it fully Euro 4 compliant while delivering its massive power and torque. The S version features Öhlins suspension units, an upgraded performance braking system, and Ducati’s quick-shift up and down. The Diavel styling has grown leaner and meaner for a unique sports power cruiser like none other.

2019 Ducati Diavel First Look

2019 Ducati Diavel First Look The Italian power cruiser gets even more Ducati unveiled its vastly redesigned Diavel power cruiser at EICMA. The design looks sharper than the previous edition thanks to the new exhaust system that disappears from the right side of the bike, with only the twin outlets appearing low and behind the engine. The total black paint scheme makes the bike look mysterious, kind of like an alien spaceship and that, for the Diavel, is a great thing.

The new Diavel 1260 combines the performance of a maxi-naked with the ergonomics of a muscle cruiser. The new Panigale V4 Speciale takes the concept of Italian sports bikes to an extreme . The new Diavel 1260 is equipped with a twin cylinder, 1262 cm³, desmodromic Ducati Testastretta

Based on the MIG series, the Ducati MIG - RR is equipped with an aluminium frame with a new geometry, 170 mm of front travel and 160 mm on the back, components of the highest level, the bike and its exclusive livery having The new Diavel 1260 combines personality, sportiness and comfort.

On the opposite extreme, Ducati is about to release through its dealers network the product of the cooperation established with Thok E-Bikes, the MIG-RR, a sophisticated e-MTB that promises superior potential and versatility thanks to the very solid structure of its hydroformed aluminium tubing frame and top-quality components. The Ducati MIG-RR comes in four sizes (S, M, L, XL) and features a 250-watt Shimano Steps E2000 electric motor powered by a 504-WH Shimano battery. The engine delivers its power to the pedals and from there to the 11-speed final transmission, all by Shimano. Suspension is by Fox: a 170mm-travel telefork and a link-actuated monoshock. Braking is done by Shimano Saint 203mm discs with four-piston calipers. Wheels by Mavic are in 29-inch front and 27-inch rear sizes. The whole tips the scale at 50 pounds.

Ducati Multistrada 1260 raises the concept of multibike by increasing performance, versatility, comfort, safety and fun. The Ducati Testastretta DVT engine allows total adaptability to Strong personality both in design and performances, the Diavel mixes sporty soul and comfort and riding pleasure.

Ducati stepping into the electro-bicycle market does not surprise me, that is a growing business and the return per unit is very consistent. What surprised me is that Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali announced that the future of motorcycling will be electric. The Ducati e-MTB looks efficient, top-quality, and well tuned for a lot of fun through the woods and given a reasonable price will make a good success, but I believe that Claudio must have got a clear message from the Audi top level.

It is well known that Audi is working hard at the development of a full line of battery-powered electric cars, for whatever that might be good for, and all the makes in the group must fall in line, including Ducati and Lamborghini. But given the poor power density even lithium-ion batteries are capable of, I believe that automotive electric propulsion will only come with fuel cells. It takes a whopping 1,550 pounds of batteries for a poor, theoretical range of 250 miles. A state-of-the-art ultra-low-emission, 300-hp, spark-ignited engine can easily run 7,500 miles on that much of weight in gasoline, cruising at a legal 70 mph. Let alone a diesel engine of the same power (duly clean, I promise). Maybe Domenicali is already at work to see how to design a desmo-electric motor. That would be real fun!

2018 Ducati Monster 797 Review.
The friendly and approachable Ducati Monster Some things just make sense: tacos from Baja, coffee from Colombia, and motorcycles from Italy. Last year, Ducati released the friendly and approachable Monster 797 to offer somewhat of a stepping stone into its premier Monster lineup. The Monster was first introduced back in 1993 and at one point accounted for more than half of Ducati's sales worldwide. The beast from Bologna has been mostly praised for its exceptional performance and power, which can be intimidating for some. However, being such an iconic bike desired by riders of all skill levels, Ducati decided to aim the newest addition to the Monster family toward a more casual enthusiast. The Ducati Monster 797 comes packed with the same 803cc air-cooled Desmodue twin as the Ducati Scrambler which produces a maximum 73 hp at 8,250 rpm and 49 pound-feet of torque at 5,750 rpm. Matched with a six-speed gearbox transmission, 50mm throttle body, suspended on a 43mm Kayaba USD fork and a preload- and rebound-adjustable Sachs monoshock, all enclosed in a steel trellis frame. We spent a day putting the Monster 797 to work ripping through canyons and slaying freeway miles to get an overall opinion of the bike in a variety of road conditions. At first glance, the Ducati Monster 797 looks like a bike packed with performance for tight corners, fast speed, and big wheelies, however, looks can be deceiving.
