LOVE IT OR HATE IT.

2019 Ducati XDiavel S:

The S version is equipped as standard with a DRL (Daytime Running Light) system for the front light, DLC for the stems of the front fork and Brembo M50 monoblock callipers for the front brake. The exclusivity of the XDiavel S is enhanced by visible mechanical finishings: the belt covers of the engine, the frame plates, the footpeg plates, and the wheels with their unique and exclusive design. Finally, to complete the S version, the rear-view mirrors are machined as a single piece, the seat has bi-material covering, the natural anodised and brushed fork and the Bluetooth module for the infotainment system.

Low speed excitement
Ducati enters the Cruiser world and does so in its very own way, representing the best of both worlds. The Ducati world: thrilling performance, sporty power, advanced electronics. The cruiser world: long, low, forward positioned footpegs, powerful torque even at low speeds, no compromise in terms of materals and finishes. The XDiavel is now available in the new color Matt Liquid Concrete Grey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2019 Ducati XDiavel S Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Unmistakable style

Long, low, muscular, modern shapes and technologically cutting-edge components. A bike that combines absolute style with cutting-edge technology. A bike that projects the concept of Cruiser into modern times, towards the future, a true “Technocruiser”.

Are you ready to change position?

A wide handlebar and footpegs that are further forward. The road runs below the wheels, accompanied by a sense of control and comfort typical of a cruiser. But when it is time to face the corners, XDiavel will astound you. XDiavel is a cruiser, with a level of performance and technical content that allow for riding versatility and unique experiences

Tailor made

When the designers and engineers started to work on the XDiavel, they started from a basic concept: a relaxed riding position, like a real cruiser, with a low seat and forward footpegs. But that was not all: the ergonomics had to be modular, so as to allow the rider to meld into the bike, like a tailored suit.

Enjoy the road, with confidence

When designing each bike, Ducati constantly aims to ensure maximum reliability and to reduce maintenance costs. A commitment that has made it possible to lengthen the times between Desmo Service scheduled maintenance checkups (during which valve clearance is checked and adjusted as needed) to 30,000 km for the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine of the XDiavel S. Even the simplest checkups like the Oil Service have reached 15,000 km or 12 months. A considerable range for high performance engines, which confirms the high quality standards adopted in the choice of materials and research and development processes.

 

 

 

2019 Ducati XDiavel S Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine is the king
Beautiful, powerful, sophisticated. The Xdiavel has the latest evolutionary step of the testastretta engine: the Ducati Testastertta DVT 1262.

The Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262. The increased displacement, combined with the use of the DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) system, allows for incredibly full, but also fluid, torque distribution even at low speeds, while ensuring sports performance at full throttle. In addition, the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is extremely well designed.

The bike by numbers
5.000, 147, 40. Three numbers that summarise the XDiavel concept. 5000 the number of RPM at which the engine delivers maximum torque, 147 the ergonomic configurations for the rider, 40 the degrees of the angle at maximum lean.

Tyres and wheels
The XDiavel has 14-spoke wheels. At the front the wheel is 3.5″ x 17”, while at the back it is 8″ x 17”. XDiavel S, on the other hand, has exclusive curved 12-spoke wheels with visible finishings which highlight the design. On the front wheel is a traditional 120/70 ZR17 tyre with a redesigned tread to maximise performance in the wet, while the rear wheel is 240/45 ZR17. The covers are Pirelli Diablo Rosso II. The large rear tyre uses double compound technology to increase grip during the most extreme cornering, guaranteeing at the same time high kilometric performance and applying Enhanced Patch Technology to maximise the contact area with any lean angle. The tread design and the compounds used guarantee exceptional performance in all conditions, especially in the wet.

Riding Mode
The XDiavel integrates the latest innovations in Ducati technology, such as Riding Modes. The three preset modes, which can be selected during riding, are programmed to instantly modify the “”character”” of the XDiavel. The three Riding Modes work by combining different cutting-edge technologies, such as Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and ABS Cornering Bosch systems. Riding in town means moving attention from control of the accelerator to the surrounding environment: the Urban mode, therefore, instantly changes the character of the XDiavel, transforming it into an easy to handle form of transport which feels safe. The power supplied is reduced to 100 hp, the DTC is set at level 6 and the ABS profile is set to Safe & Stable, in order to always move in complete safety, even on uneven surfaces and in heavier traffic. The Touring Riding Mode enables the engine to supply all its 152 hp but with a soft and easy to handle power curve. The DTC is set to level 4 and the ABS on Safe & Stable, for pleasant and relaxed riding, ideal for maximum comfort for the rider and passenger on long journeys. The Sport Riding Mode offers pure fun, with the engine releasing 152 hp through a precise, expert touch of the accelerator. To experience the performance of the XDiavel without any compromise, Sport Mode reduces the DTC to level 2 and sets the ABS to Sport mode.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)
DTC is a very smart system which acts as a “filter” between the rider’s right hand and the rear wheel. In just a few milliseconds, DTC can record and subsequently control the spinning of the rear wheel, contributing to increasing the performance and active safety of the bike. The system offers eight different levels, each programmed to provide a certain tolerance level for rear end sliding, and thus suitable for the progressive riding skill levels. Level one is designed to offer less interaction and is destined for more expert riders, in good riding conditions, while level eight involves greater interaction and has been developed to offer complete confidence to all riders, also in wet and slippery conditions. The DTC levels are preset as standard in each of the three Riding Modes, but can be selected individually by accessing an intuitive menu, in order to best meet the rider’s needs.

Full LED lighting system with DRL
The XDiavel S features a dominant front headlight with Daytime Running Light (in countries where it is allowed). The DRL is a particular light which guarantees perfect visibility of the bike during the day and, at the same time, thanks to its particular form, makes the XDiavel S instantly recognisable also in sunlight.

Belt transmission
The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt final drive. A must in the cruiser world, the system was developed for the XDiavel by Ducati engineers so as to be able to guarantee reliable and safe transmission of the power supplied by the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262. The advantages of the belt are the low noise level, cleaning, reduced maintenance and fluid response to opening the gas, as befits a real cruiser.

Forward footpegs
When the designers and engineers started to work on the XDiavel, they started from a basic concept: a relaxed riding position, like a real cruiser, with a low seat and forward footpegs. But that was not all: the ergonomics had to be modular, so as to allow the rider to meld into the bike, like a tailored suit. That is why the footpegs of the XDiavel can be adjusted as standard in three positions (+/- 22.5 mm compared to the standard position). In addition, for anyone favouring a more sports riding position, a Ducati Performance “central footpegs” kit will be available, sold as an optional extra.

Adjustable suspension
The XDiavel has a 50 mm diameter front fork with black anodised sheaths, which can be completely adjusted in the hydraulic braking in compression and extension and in the spring preload (the S version also has stems with DLC coating). The fork has the compression register and spring preload on the left stem, while the extension register is located on the right stem. With a steering inclination of 30° and a 130 mm trail, the set-up of the XDiavel enables an agile and controllable front end, thus guaranteeing exceptional handling and a notable steering angle. On the other hand, at the rear the XDiavel has an adjustable mono-shock in the spring preload and in extension, equipped with a separate fuel tank. Mounted almost horizontally, the shock absorber works together with progressive kinematics.

Bosch Brembo braking system
The XDiavel is equipped, as standard, with the Brembo braking system with Bosch 9.1ME ABS Cornering as an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). ABS Cornering makes use of the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform by Bosch to optimise the braking power of the front and back wheels, also in critical situations and when cornering. The system, implemented within the Riding Mode, can provide performance to suit all conditions and riding styles. The high quality Brembo components combined with Bosch ABS, the specific suspension set-up and Pirelli Enhanced Patch Technology guarantee excellent braking performance for the XDiavel as well as utmost safety in all conditions and for riders of any level. The system can act in a more or less sensitive way and the intervention level can be chosen by the rider based on their experience and road and/or use conditions. There are three ABS profiles available (Expert, Sport and Safe & Stable) and they are preset as standard in each of the three Riding Modes, but can be called up individually by accessing a user-friendly menu.

Testastretta DVT 1262
The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is a completely new and Euro 4 approved engine which uses the Desmodromic Variable Timing system. The increase in engine capacity compared to the Testastretta 1200, together with the use of the Desmodromic Variable Timing system, has enabled supply of incredibly full and at the same time fluid torque at low running speeds, while also guaranteeing sports performance when the throttle is fully opened. In addition, the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 has a particularly detailed design which, thanks to the repositioning of the water pump inside the V of the cylinders, does away with the cooling system pipes on the left side.

Exhaust system
The exhaust of the XDiavel is a 2 in 1 with a chamber body and two terminals. The exhaust pipes have been designed to leave the engine visible and also the central body has been positioned in front of the rear wheel so as to be almost invisible.

Ducati Power Launch (DPL)
The “Dragster” spirit of the XDiavel can be fully expressed thanks to the Ducati Power Launch (DPL). This system can guarantee fast and safe starts thanks to the Bosch IMU which regulates the gas and the intervention of the DTC on the basis of the setting chosen. The DPL has 3 intervention modes where level 1 is the one which provides maximum performance. The DPL is operated by pressing the dedicated button positioned on the right-hand switch. Once activated it is possible to select the intervention level through the menu which opens up on the dashboard. Once the level is selected, the rider must use the clutch, put it in first gear and completely open the gas. At this point, simply by gradually releasing the clutch, it is possible to make an explosive start. The system automatically switches off on exceeding 120 km/h, or when third gear is engaged, or when speed drops to under 5 km/h. In order to protect the clutch, the system uses an algorithm which enables only a limited number of consecutive starts. The starts are recalculated one by one during normal use of the bike.

Ride By Wire
The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the engine and the Diavel’s fuel grip, which allows the ideal power level to be configured depending on the Riding Mode selected. The power supplied by the engine is no longer regulated solely and directly by the accelerator cable, but passes through the control unit which, on the basis of the signal received, electronically regulation the opening of the throttle. The RbW system uses three different mappings to regulate the supply of power: 152 hp in Sport Riding Mode 152 hp in Touring Riding Mode 100 hp in Urban Riding Mode
