I haven't seen any reviews or performance data. Where was that information from?

I don't begrudge Ducati for building the Diavel. If it increases Ducati's market share and subsequently helps them to build more amazing machines, then so be it. I'm a bit at odds styling wise with the Diavel. Maybe pics don't do it justice but it seems to miss a bit on the common design language across the Ducati range, to me at least

How's everyone?
I was wondering if anybody else found the Diavel somewhat looks like a jetski when you sit on one in the bike show...I sat on one and yikes, it does feel like I was sitting on a Jetski, bulky and all...but Bravos for Ducati's new idea of a cruiser...
*Still enjoying my 848 on trackdays

thanks for the pics ... doesn't look too bad to me, agree on the monster evo comment!

I am curious about its price and positioning versus the SF. If the base diavel is for 17k (slipper clutch, dtc, ride modes -- the works), why would they expect people to pay more for the SF-S?

I am assuming not many SFs get used for track days (that'd be 848's duties)

I haven't seen the 'faster than 1198 to 100' anywhere -- they just mention 2.6 seconds somewhere "breathless in 2.6 seconds", but it sounds like it might be the 0-100 time .. which is slower than 1198 i suppose

Stopping power - they mention is better than SBKs, because of the ABS - again that does not mean shorter stopping distance (weight is more and a skilled rider -- not me -- can outbrake an ABS), but perhaps more weight on rear wheel also helps with braking power.

Lean angles - they mention 41 degrees, which compares to 40 degrees or so for the 'sporty' (yeah right!) harleys ... maybe the sportster etc.

In my opinion the back fender/pillion set up is fugly and impractical. This is a combination of style and functionality, with regards to going 2 up and carrying some luggage. If they carried the back fender back and down .. it would not make the bike looked chopped short and the pillion could also be more practically, and comfortably, placed. AND .. for those of us, old guys, who like to cruise more than sport .. it would be more amenable to adding a removable sissybar for carrying a t-bag. I bought a vrod because I wanted a nice looking power cruiser and although it is, in my opinion, one of the best looking bikes on the market it is relatively lethargic and corners even worse. The only other real option is the vmax .. *shrugs*
