2020 Ducati Diavel 1260/1260 S

  2020 Ducati Diavel 1260/1260 S The look, the sound, the riding position, and the torque-rich power of a cruiser motorcycle are what makes this category great for long stretches of highway and smooth, banking twists. But in order to attract riders with sportbike backgrounds to the segment, manufacturers not only have to modernize design, but also provide a superbike-like powerplant. Enter the 2020 Ducati Diavel 1260 and 1260 S. Originally introduced as simply “Diavel” in 2010, this power cruiser from the Italian manufacturer marries both elements from its assertive lines to the slightly forward footpegs and let’s not forget the 2019 upgrade to Ducati’s Testastretta DVT 1,262cc engine.

The 2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4 is a supernaked machine that packs a wicked punch of premium superbike performance. Seriously, Ducati stripped the Panigale V4 of its bodywork and tailored its ergonomics package with a one-piece motocross-style handlebar and revised footpeg placement for all-day comfort, then cut it loose. It’s powered by the same 1,103cc V-4 engine as its superbike compatriot (ahem… let the ripping begin), but gets a dedicated engine mapping and shorter final drive gearing for optimum street performance—and thankfully, top-shelf Brembo Stylema brakes to stop it! Oh, and comes equipped with MotoGP-derived “biplane” winglets…

This is a machine for those who want to carve through the canyons, bomb around the racetrack, and then take it to work after the weekend fun is over.

2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4/V4 S Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

In Cycle World’s first ride review, Road Test Editor Michael Gilbert stated, “At first touch of the throttle, the Streetfighter offers a crisp and tractable power delivery as it comfortably transfers weight rearward for supreme confidence at corner exit. But hit the 7,000 rpm mark, and you’ll witness the V4 in all its glory as it lofts the front end skyward and sends your glutes into the rear cowling under hard acceleration.”

A comparable list of super-nakeds includes the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100, BMW S 1000 R, KTM 1290 Super Duke R, and the Yamaha MT-10. The well-mannered Honda CB1000R also fits, but packs less of a sporty punch.
