Newly released (I had this bike up 2 months ago but it's finally made it to the Cool Wall), the 2015 Diavel is the first 2015 offering from Ducati. What do you think of it and the changes?

Yee Haw.....I am first up......

Voted Cool , down from an Awesome for the original Diavel.....new one , though supposedly improved in many small ways looks less good to my eye with new head light. Comfort improvements hopefully successfull, it really needed a better seat (and seems to have gotten one).

Wrote a review recently about the '13 I rode, LOVED it.......but bought something else.

The heart says Awesome, the head says Fail...

This bike is sorta like that company that will 'name' a star after someone as a gift. It'll put a big smile on your face, but it's ultimately useless. Unless going around in circles at a track twenty minutes from home is your idea of fun. Anywhere else, riding this bike at better than 60% would be a jail-able offense and I'd say good riddance.

Without ANY ability to 'take it with you' on this, going any further than a day trip would be difficult. Maybe if you included a back pack you could possibility pull off an overnighter, but that's about it.

For all that though, it really IS wildly sexy. H.R. Giger couldn't have done a better job on the motor, and the way the tank flows into the saddle and the aggressive cut-out into the rear deck -- just art.

So okay Duc, I'm a sucker for a sharp, modern looking bike. You keep building tilt'a'whirls if you like, but make 'em look like this and I'll hand out a Cool. (-:

You can get panniers and a luggage rack for it. http://www.ducati.com/accessories/diave ... ssories.do

40 liters for the panniers isn't much. Maybe add an aftermarket top case or duffel bag. I guess a weekender is doable.


Anyway, as a fairly short guy, I appreciate the Diavel. I've heard the engine is awesome and the bike handles fairly well. The looks are growing on me. I've seen a few on the road, and they're quite attention getting. Still nowhere near what you'd call pretty, especially by Ducati standards. But it's cool enough for me.

Diavel would be a lot of fun to ride, would be hard on my insurance though. Diavel strada a little more equipped but not much. Definitely a cool.

There are actually quite a few running around Calgary, and I know one owner who loves his.I like the concept of the bike, but the seat is basically a notch that locks you in, and makes the bike a no-go for me. Overall however, its cool at least for being unique and apparently quite competent as well.

I live in Fairfield County, CT which is one of the most affluent areas in the US, and I have never seen one on the road either! Not one! I see sh!t load of Ducatis and have even seen few Desmosedicis.

I went with: fail

It's an interesting concept idea, but (to me) it's like D&G designing a sledgehammer. Close up, parts of the bike look really neat, but as a whole, it's just "crude" to what Ducati can do. The engine is awesome, and they have the same engine in the Multistrada (off the top of my head), but as suggested the Diavel's locked in riding position isn't as comfortable.

I'm surprised as well it continues to sell and is offered. When it first came out I thought it was a mistake, not it's just an oddity. If I was looking at the Diavel I think I'd consider a SuperDuke, which is a more purpose built bike.

2015 Ducati Diavel - Coolness Factor = 59.8%

Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... Diavel.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Ducati Diavel is:

Awesome (3 points) 32% 32% [ 11 ]
Cool (2 points) 35% 35% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 12% 12% [ 4 ]
Fail (0 point) 21% 21% [ 7 ]

Total votes : 34

= a Coolwall Factor of 59.8%

NOTES: A very interesting bike offered up by Ducati that many feel is the "red-headed stepchild in the attic". Did Ducati do enough to "revise it" and re-define it? Probably not. Is it a bad bike? Not really, it's purpose is a little muddy, it's design isn't really Ducati. The one thing that makes it cool is that it is different and the non-Ducati-Ducati.

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!
