New 2016 Carbon

The Diavel Carbon expresses the fullest nature of the Diavel concept, where performance combines with style in a celebration of Italian engineering at its best. Lightweight composites and milled aluminium components meld the two worlds of sport and style with features that are both visually beautiful and functionally high-performance.

The intoxicating design, with innovative LED headlight, and refined rider comfort of the new Diavel may imply "cruiser," but the brute force of its 162 hp Testastretta engine and its razor sharp handling prove otherwise. The Diavel Carbon exemplifies the distinctive style and sporty soul of the Diavel with high-quality, light-weight components. Clad with carbon fiber and forged wheels, weight is reduced to just 205 kg, only further enhancing the performance of this extraordinary motorcycle.

The Diavel Carbon is available in Asphalt Grey & Matt Carbon colour combination.

Diavel Carbon Technical Data

An overview of the Diavel Carbon Engine Specifications:

The Diavel's heart is the Ducati Testastretta 11° Dual Spark (DS) - developed directly from the incredibly powerful, world-beating race engines of Ducati Corse. Ducati's Testastretta 11° DS harnesses the immense power of the Superbike engine and makes it smoother and more linear, combining high performance with an enjoyable and perfectly manageable ride.To create an engine with this blend of brute power and supreme usability, Ducati carefully developed its cam timing with a particular focus on the valve overlap angle. Defined as the period of crankshaft rotation (in degrees) during which both intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time, this overlap angle is set at 11° on the Diavel's engine - much less than the 41° used by Ducati's Superbike engines. As a result the fresh inlet charge is less compromised by exiting exhaust gases, resulting in smoother combustion, improved fuel economy, and lower exhaust emissions.

Along these same lines, the Testastretta 11° DS employs several other technological advances. Targeted injectors direct their charge to the intake valves, which provides better vaporization of the air/fuel mixture. This compressed intake charge is ignited by twin spark plugs in each chamber for rapid and even combustion. And after exiting the combustion chamber, a secondary air system burns off any residual fuel molecules, allowing a richer mixture to be used without increasing emissions. As a combined result of these technologies the Testastretta 11° DS is the perfect base for the Diavel - full of character, and producing tremendous power that give unmatched acceleration, along with smooth and controllable delivery for cruising the boulevard at any speed.

Ergonomics
The redesigned, more comfortable seat offers more room and has a low height of 770 mm, which allows for extended hours of riding pleasure and makes the Diavel accessible to a wide range of riders. A relaxed handlebar position sits naturally in the rider's reach, ensuring full control and comfort with the unmatched coolness of cruiser style

FINAL DRIVE Front sprocket 15; Rear sprocket 43
CLUTCH Light action, wet, multiplate clutch with hydraulic control. Self-servo action on drive, slipper action on over-run.

Forks with low-friction fork legs
The Diavel uses 50 mm front forks with fork legs finished in low-friction diamond-like carbon (DLC). These forks are fully adjustable for spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping.

The forks are equipped with slash-cut triple-clamps - the bottom yoke in die-cast aluminium and the upper in forged aluminium - with a rubber-mounted tapered alloy handlebar clamp. With a 28° steering rake, 130 mm trail and 24 mm offset, this set-up provides a sure-footed yet agile front end for incredible handling.
