2014 Ducati DIAVEL CARBON | Ducati Diavel Carbon
The Diavel incorporates the very latest in innovative Ducati technologies, such as electronic Riding Modes. Selectable from the left-hand switchgear - even while riding - the choice of three pre-set modes are programmed to instantly change the character of the Diavel. The three modes are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as Ride-by-Wire (RbW) and Ducati Traction Control (DTC). As riding on city streets can require more attention to the surroundings than to throttle inputs, the Urban Riding Mode instantly changes the Diavel to provide a manageable and confident ride in the city. Power output is reduced to 100hp and DTC is set at level 5, perfectly adapting the bike to variable pavement conditions and the chaos of stop-and-go traffic. The Touring Riding Mode allows the engine to deliver its full 162hp, but with a smooth, user-friendly power delivery curve. DTC system intervention is set at level 4, which provides an enjoyable and relaxing ride ideal for long distances while ensuring maximum comfort for both the rider and passenger. The Sport Riding Mode produces pure adrenaline, with the engine's full 162hp delivered with precise and sporty throttle response for maximum acceleration. For the undiluted Diavel experience, Sport mode also lowers the DTC system intervention to level 3, for riders who like to explore the bike's incredible performance a little closer to the limit of traction.
The upper LCD display is mounted on the handlebar riser and provides key information such as speed and rpm, in addition to showing warning lights, time and temperature. The lower, full colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) unit is integrated into the fuel tank and provides an incredibly clear display of the currently selected Riding Mode, gear, and DTC level as well as total and trip mileage. Used extensively on mobile phones and computers, TFT technology is superior to LCD and displays easy-to-read high resolution graphics. The Diavel's TFT display goes one step further by sensing the ambient light conditions to automatically select a black or white background colour. When the Diavel is stationary, its lower display also doubles as a user-friendly control panel to personalise and save DTC and RbW settings within each Riding Mode - creating a custom electronics configuration to suit any rider's preference.

The stance of the Diavel is that of readiness, dominance, and confidence bordering on superiority. Lateral radiators add muscle to its broad "shoulders," which then taper down across the engine and into the belly-fairing with its oil cooler, giving shape to the athlete.
