2020 Ducati XDiavel / XDiavel S

2020 Ducati XDiavel / XDiavel S Features


Testastretta DVT 1262

The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is a completely new and Euro 4 approved engine which uses the Desmodromic Variable Timing system.

Exhaust system

The exhaust of the XDiavel is a 2 in 1 with a chamber body and two terminals. The exhaust pipes have been designed to leave the engine visible and also the central body has been positioned in front of the rear wheel so as to be almost invisible.
Ducati Power Launch (DPL)

The “Dragster” spirit of the XDiavel can be fully expressed thanks to the Ducati Power Launch (DPL).


The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the engine and the Diavel’s fuel grip, which allows the ideal power level to be configured depending on the Riding Mode selected.


Belt transmission

The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt final drive.

Forward footpegs

When the designers and engineers started to work on the XDiavel, they started from a basic concept: a relaxed riding position, like a real cruiser, with a low seat and forward footpegs.

Adjustable suspension

The XDiavel has a 50 mm diameter front fork with black anodized sheaths, which can be completely adjusted in the hydraulic braking in compression and extension and in the spring preload (the S version also has stems with DLC coating).

Bosch Brembo braking system

The XDiavel is equipped, as standard, with the Brembo braking system with Bosch 9.1ME ABS Cornering as an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP).


Tires and wheels

The XDiavel has 14-spoke wheels. At the front the wheel is 3.5″ x 17”, while at the back it is 8″ x 17”.

Riding Mode

The XDiavel integrates the latest innovations in Ducati technology, such as Riding Modes.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

DTC is a very smart system which acts as a “filter” between the rider’s right hand and the rear wheel.

Full LED lighting system with DRL

The XDiavel S features a dominant front headlight with Daytime Running Light (in countries where it is allowed).
