Introducing The New Ducati XDiavel Dark
The XDiavel Dark is the latest addition to the 2021 Ducati line-up. This new model replaces the outgoing base XDiavel model and gives it a darker character. Instead of being a normal XDiavel, it’s a blacked-out sport-focused machine designed to prove that cruisers can also deliver impressive performance too. And for those wondering what the difference between the Diavel and XDiavel is, it’s exactly that: the XDiavel is built with performance in mind.
The power train is almost identical to the regular Diavel. It features an Italian-made 1262 cc Testastretta DVT 1262 engine, which produces 160 horsepower and 93.7 lb-ft of peak torque, and the bodywork is also similar, with both bikes enjoying classic Ducati lines and design language. Multiple ride modes, power modes, traction control, adjustable suspension, power launch, electronic cruise control, and cornering ABS are also included.
The XDiavel Dark receives a new exhaust for 2021 too, with a new layout that matches the model’s lines and nature.
For 2021, the XDiavel Dark is available in a dark color scheme, with Dark Stealth coloring, Carbon Black features and matte black wheels.
The 2021 Ducati XDiavel Dark starts at $19,995 USD / $22,295 CAD.

2021 Ducati XDiavel Dark Features
The Power of Opposites
XDiavel, the Ducati cruiser that combines the best of both worlds, is renewed, still remaining true to its philosophy.
The new XDiavel Dark comes in matte black to further enhance the strengths of the XDiavel. These strengths include the ability to combine exciting performance, sports bike power and refined electronics with the typical cruiser features: a long low and comfortable bike with advanced footpegs and a powerful torque even at low revs, but also top materials and finishes.
