2014 Ducati DIAVEL CARBON | Ducati Diavel Carbon
The transmission features an oil bath clutch with "slipper" function and super-light feel at the lever. Its design uses a progressive self-servo mechanism that presses the plates together when under drive from the engine, enabling the use of lower clutch spring rates. This results in a much lighter lever feel at the handlebar, ideal in stop-and-go traffic or during long journeys. When the drive force is reversed (over-run), the same mechanism reduces the pressure on the clutch plates, enabling them to provide a race-like "slipper" action, which reduces the destabilizing effect of the rear end under aggressive downshifting and also provides a much smoother feeling when closing the throttle or downshifting under normal riding conditions.
The Diavel uses 50 mm Marzocchi front forks with fork legs finished in low-friction diamond-like carbon (DLC). These forks are fully adjustable for spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping. The forks are equipped with slash-cut triple-clamps - the bottom yoke in die-cast aluminium and the upper in forged aluminium - with a rubber-mounted tapered alloy handlebar clamp. With a 28° steering rake, 130 mm trail and 24 mm offset, this set-up provides a sure-footed yet agile front end for incredible handling.
The Diavel Carbon has lightweight forged, machine-finished wheels by Marchesini that not only achieve an impressive total weight savings of 5.5lb (2.5kg) vs. the standard Diavel wheels, but also look spectacular. These highly intricate nine-spoke wheels feature machined details in natural aluminium, set against a black finish.

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.
