Lamborghini and Ducati have announced the launch of Ducati Diavel 1260
Lamborghini motorcycle which has been made in a limited and numbered edition of
630 units. The two global brands are celebrating the cooperation between the
two organisations and appealing to both motorcyclists and collectors from all
over the world.
Ducati designers’ inspiration for the special project came from one of the
Sant’Agata Bolognese company’s most fascinating models: the Lamborghini Sián
FKP 37. Based on the Diavel 1260 S, the concept of the Diavel Lamborghini
transfers the core concepts of the Sián FKP 37 to the motorcycle world,
redesigning the components that most characterise the Diavel.
new, lightweight forged wheels explicitly recall those of the car, as do the
air intakes and radiator covers made of carbon fibre that suggest superimposed
floating elements on the main structure of the bike. Finally, the typical
Ducati red is referenced by the colouring of the Brembo brake calipers.
detail of the bike, redesigned by the Centro Stile Ducati for this specific
project, is made of a light and precious material such as carbon fibre, also
inspired by the car. In addition to the radiator covers and air intakes, the
silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear
mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame are also made of carbon.
livery of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the result of the collaboration
between the Centro Stile Ducati and Centro Stile Lamborghini. The paints
applied to the bike are the same as those used for the Sián FKP 37, with the bodywork
characterised by the Verde (Green) Gea colour, while the frame, undertray and
forged rims are embellished with the Oro (Gold) Electrum colour. The important
Lamborghini design elements of the hexagon and ‘Y’ motif are evident: this
special version of the Diavel pays homage to the former in the shape of the
exhaust and the latter in the seat’s aesthetic details.
livery of this Diavel also sports a ‘63’: an important number for the
Sant’Agata Bolognese company that was founded in 1963, and the number that
multiplied by ten arrives at the 630 numbered units to be produce by Ducati. The
630 units of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini will be available at Ducati
dealerships from the end of December 2020.
