Fancy yourself a 2022 Ducati Diavel, but want some extra cruiser “X-Factor”? The XDiavel might be the perfect bike for you. By taking the pre-existing 2022 Diavel and slapping on a few identity-altering components onto it; Ducati has created the opportunity for something with even higher prestige to fit into their 2022 model lineup.
Although the Diavel and XDiavel look very similar from afar, the details come into focus when you get closer to the XDiavel. The XDiavel is Ducati’s closest motorcycle model resembling a cruiser motorcycle. Unlike the Diavel, the XDiavel has forward foot controls which gives the rider a much more ‘cruiser-like’ seating position.
Through dialing back the aggression on the standard Diavel, the XDiavel has a much more cleaned-up tail section and smaller pillion seat. The footpegs have three adjustable settings depending on rider height, and there are handlebar options to further the cruiser-style seating position. It also comes in some exclusive trim options available for 2022.
The XDiavel delivers its power through a 1262cc Testastretta DVT twin-cylinder engine which allows the bike to throw down an impressive 152 horsepower and 92 lb-ft of torque through the massive 8″ x 17” rear tire; meaning it’s great for the drag strip.
Ride-by-Wire throttle control allows for riding modes, and Ducati’s Traction Control and ABS Conering Bosch systems are also present on the bike.
The 2022 Ducati XDiavel Dark / S / Nera starts at $20,895 USD / $23,495 CAD.

2022 Ducati XDiavel Dark / S / Nera Features
Numbered and limited edition
The XDiavel Nera will be produced in a limited-edition numbered series of 500 units. The serial number is engraved on a dedicated plate on the trellis frame.
Saddled by hand
The most recognizable part of the XDiavel Nera is the special seat made of Pelle Frau®: a soft natural leather saddled by hand, the result of years of research by Poltrona Frau. It is available in 5 different colours (Siam, Steel Blue, Cemento, India and Selva) and is customized with a series of “X” engraved through a sophisticated laser process, which recall the name of the bike.
XDiavel Nera expresses the power of opposites, combining the relaxed pace typical of the cruiser world with the sporty ride and thrilling performance of Ducati. The twin-cylinder Testastretta DVT 1262 is the beating heart of XDiavel. The chassis, suspension, braking system and electronic equipment guarantee comfort, safety and high-level performance at the same time.
Unique and unmistakeable
Each saddle, handmade in natural Pelle Frau® leather, is a unique piece, it is available in 5 different colors directly from the Poltrona Frau palette. Accompanying all this are added a wider comfort saddle and a backrest, also in Pelle Frau® leather, suitable for travelling in two without sacrificing style.
