New for 2013 in the Ducati line-up is the Ducati Diavel Strada. Ducati says that the Diavel Strada is a brand new model that: 'Blends power cruiser performance with touring comfort and functionality.'
Now, we have long been in love with the Ducati Strada so we'll be very keen to see how the new motorcycle stands up. Basically, the Ducati Diavel Strada now sits alongside the Diavel Carbon, now exclusively in carbon red and the standard Ducati Diavel in three new color versions.
While the Ducati Diavel Strada's screen blends into the Diavel's lines for improved wind protection, the rider's posture is further tweaked for long-distance with 15mm higher handlebars swept back towards the rider a further 60mm and larger seats with revised foam cushioning. There is also a higher-electric-output generator that can provide power to gadgets like GPS, MP3 players mobile phones and other communication equipment in total the Diavel Strada provides for two handy auxiliary power outlets intended for your gadgets.
The passenger’s ride has also been improved with a back-rest and grab-rails. The Ducati Diavel Strada's touring practicality has been upped with 41 liters of side luggage, fitted as standard equipment, with revised passenger footpegs and rear lighting too.
The Ducati Diavel Strada comes in a titanium color scheme with black frame and black wheels and side luggage.
