Ducati Diavel

A half-reverent, half-fearful sigh makes itself heard: “Oh, my God”. It looks like a gargoyle sculpted in the pits of hell. Standing still, you can almost see Mephistopheles and Beelzebub fussing over it. And at the same time, this thing is more Italian than Monica Bellucci with one leg on a Vespa, the other on a 916 and... er, see what I meant about lust?

And if you think that is the extent of the Diavel’s sway over you, wait till you twist the throttle. The 1198cc Testastretta Evoluzione motor develops 162bhp and 128Nm – more than enough to claim its fair share of souls. And the Diavel has three frames of mind to guide this hellish power.
