DUCATI INDIA HAS LAUNCHED ITS NEW XDIAVEL AND XDIAVEL S CRUISERS AT RS 15.87 LAKH AND 18.47 LAKH RESPECTIVELY, WHICH NOW WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ALL THE SIX DUCATI DEALERSHIPS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
After launching the Multistrada 1200 Enduro recently, Ducati has now added the new XDiavel range to its India line-up. The standard XDiavel has been priced at Rs 15.87 lakh, while the superior XDiavle S comes with a price tag of Rs 18.47 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi). The aggressively styled cruiser was first unveiled at the 2015 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, where it was also adjudged as the most beautiful bike of the show. Designed to challenge traditional cruisers, the XDiavel looks like an aggressive streetfighter but also gets all the characteristics of a conventional cruiser machine.
Powering the new Ducati XDiavel is a 1,262cc Testastretta L-twin with DVT (Ducati Variable Timing) that comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox using a slipper and self-servo wet multiplate clutch. The assembly also gets hydraulic control for smooth shifting and lesser effort. The motor produces 156PS of power at 9,500rpm and a peak torque of 129Nm at just 5,000rpm, which is not exactly what a typical cruiser delivers, though it is close enough. The XDiavel is the first Ducati to gets a belt type final drive for a true cruiser experience.
The bike comes packed with 'Ducati Power Launch,' which is an advanced launch control system that makes it immensely quick off the line. Other advanced features of the bike include Ducati Safety Pack (comprising of Bosch cornering ABS and DTC), cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, backlit handlebar switches and much more.
The long, low and muscular Ducati XDiavel is a meeting of Italian experience and cruising culture which is called by the company as a true "Technocruiser." Moreover, the company is also providing official accessories for the bike, so you can customise it according to your taste. Looking at the pricing and the engine capacity, the XDiavel will rival the Harley-Davidson Dyna and Softail range along with the Indian Scout in the Indian market.
