Ducati announces new Diavel S for 2019

Superbike was lucky enough to see a closed-door preview of the new Diavel at World Ducati Week (WDW) at Misano in July. We couldn’t take photos – or really say anything at all about it – but now we can, because Ducati has just announced it at its World Premiere 2019 event in Milan.

The power-bruiser-cruiser for 2019 sees a good few updates…

  • 1260 DVT engine (same as in used in the Multistrada 1260) – 159HP / 95 lb-ft torque
  • Cornering ABS
  • Cruise control
  • Power modes
  • Riding modes
  • 218kg dry

There’s an S version, too, which adds some bling:

  • Ohlins
  • M50 brakes
  • Quickshifter

We can’t wait to ride it!
