Ducati India launched their new cruiser styled motorcycle the
XDiavel in India for a starting price of Rs. 15,87,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). The
bike will be available across the five Ducati dealerships in India along with
the XDiavel S which has been launched for Rs. 18,47,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). The
XDiavel comes packed with technology and safety features, apart from winning the Red Dot Award for
'Best of the Best' in product design.
The XDiavel is powered by a 1262cc, Testastretta DVT engine which
puts out 156bhp and achieves peak torque at 5000rpm. Ducati bikes previously
never featured a belt drive, however the XDiavel brings in the technology as a
first for Ducati, in a bid to reduce maintenance. The engine has been mated to
a 6-speed gearbox and features an oil-bath clutch with slipper function. The
XDiavel also comes with ride-by-wire technology which enables three riding
modes (Sport, Touring and Urban). The bike also comes with Ducati Traction
Control (DTC), cornering ABS and Ducati Power Launch (DPL).
Keeping things contemporary, the XDiavel also has a TFT screen with
four different display modes. The bike also features a three-way adjustable
feet-forward riding position and cruise control. Ravi Avalur, Managing
Director, Ducati India, said, "Cruisers are the largest segment in the
luxury motorcycle category in India. We wanted to enter this segment with a
product that revolutionises the cruiser concept. The XDiavel achieves that with
its perfect blend of futuristic styling, state of the art technology and an
engine that has been meticulously designed to the very last detail".
