The Ducati Diavel Diesel – of which only 666 numbered units will be produced – is the fruit of collaboration between Andrea Rosso, Creative Director of Diesel Licenses, and the Ducati Design Center.
To create the Ducati Diavel Diesel, the two style centers were inspired by a hyperkinetic dynamism of a post-apocalyptic, retro-futuristic world.
The result of this new collaboration was unveiled during the Milan Men’s Fashion Week at an event whose emotion-charged setting and music (performed by the Bloody Beetroots) provided the ideal backdrop for the new motorcycle. It will go on sale to the public, worldwide, starting from April 2017.
The Ducati Diavel Diesel isn’t the only new product coming up. Diesel has produced a capsule apparel collection dedicated to Ducati reflecting the DNA and roots shared by the two brands: creativity and innovation are the key values that have made Ducati and Diesel two icons of Made in Italy. Also going on sale starting from April, is a collection comprises one Jogg Jeans, a leather jacket and two T-shirts.
The Ducati Diavel Diesel is characterized by a hand-brushed stainless steel superstructure with visible welding and rivets that make it absolutely unmistakable and timeless. Details like the fuel tank cover are examples of craftsmanship and style.
The saddle, made of real leather, is unique to this Ducati Diavel, on which the pyramid element appears at various points: three identical faces embodying the three Ds of Ducati, Diavel and Diesel.
Other distinguishing features of this very special Ducati Diavel include the lateral air intake covers, made of red methacrylate with the Diesel logo on the inside. Red is also the color of the Brembo front brake calipers, of five chain links and the LCD dashboard, which recalls vintage digital displays. The Ducati Diavel Diesel’s exhaust system is another little work of art, thanks to pipes graced by black Zircotec ceramic coating and black silencers with ends machined from solid, on which the new pyramid motif appears.
