The Exclusive, Limited Edition Ducati XDiavel Black Star
The most exclusive model in the XDiavel segment of the 2021 Ducati line-up is the XDiavel Black Star. It’s the top of the range sports cruiser from Ducati, and like all things exotic from this legendary Italian motorcycle manufacturer, it’s a limited edition. For 2021 there are only 50 numbered units arriving in the United States and Canada. Each model will feature a special numbered plate that underlines its exclusivity.
In terms of performance, the XDiavel Black Star is identical to the XDiavel S. It features the same 1,262 cc twin-cylinder Testastretta DVT engine, but since it’s exclusive to North America, the engine hasn’t been tampered with for Euro5 purposes. Instead, it makes the same 152 horsepower and 92.9 lb-ft of torque. It features all the same riding aids and electronics too.
As it’s a special edition, what makes it special? It features a number of stylistic upgrades, including a new saddle with a high-grip suede material, exclusive red engine head covers, new lightweight forged rims, and Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires.
For 2021, the XDiavel Black Star is available in an exclusive sports-inspired “Black Star” livery consisting of matt black and grey, with red accents.
The 2021 Ducati XDiavel Black Star starts at $25,995 USD / $28,995 CAD
