2023 Ducati XDiavel Nera Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Numbered and limited edition
The XDiavel Nera will be produced in a limited-edition numbered series of 500 units. The serial number is engraved on a dedicated plate on the trellis frame.

Saddled by hand
The most recognizable part of the XDiavel Nera is the special seat made of Pelle Frau: a soft natural leather saddled by hand, the result of years of research by Poltrona Frau. It is available in 5 different colors (Siam Red, Steel Blue, Cemento, India and Selva) and is customized with a series of “X” engraved through a sophisticated laser process, which recall the name of the bike.

Technocruiser Soul
XDiavel Nera expresses the power of opposites, combining the relaxed pace typical of the cruiser world with the sporty ride and thrilling performance of Ducati. The twin-cylinder Testastretta DVT 1262 is the beating heart of XDiavel. The chassis, suspension, braking system and electronic equipment guarantee comfort, safety and high-level performance at the same time.

Unique and unmistakeable
Each saddle, handmade in natural Pelle Frau leather, is a unique piece, it is available in 5 different colors directly from the Poltrona Frau palette. In addition, a wider comfort saddle and a backrest, also in Pelle Frau leather, suitable for travelling in two without sacrificing style.

Equipment supplied

The 500 Ducatisti enthusiasts who order XDiavel Nera will also receive an exclusive key ring and document holder made of Pelle Frau leather in the matching color to the one chosen for the saddle.

Dedicated jet helmet

The new XDiavel Nera is characterized by the “Black on Black” livery in which gloss and matte black portions alternate. This livery makes the XDiavel even sportier and is also reflected in a dedicated jet helmet, which owners of XDiavel Nera can order together with the bike.

Power & Elegance. Together.

Beating heart of XDiavel Nera, the Testastretta DVT 1262 delivers a maximum power output of 152 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 92.9 lb ft at 5,000 rpm*. Desmodromic Variable Timing, the variable valve timing with desmodromic distribution system, allows theoretically conflicting objectives to be achieved: prompt and smooth response at low revs, generous torque throughout the curve and sports performance when the throttle is fully opened.

The bike’s chassis, its low seat height and the forward position of the foot pegs are all designed to offer incredible riding ease and comfort when travelling in a relaxed fashion at lower speeds, while also making sports riding as fun as possible. The combination of the steel tube trellis frame, the suspension system and the chassis design guarantees agility and manoeuvrability. The brake system is powerful and adjustable and, like the entire Ducati range, is equipped with cornering ABS. The electronic equipment is extremely complete and allows you to significantly raise the level of performance and safety.

The partnership with Poltrona Frau

A natural full-grain leather, it is soft, silky and elegant, and gains in personality with use time-proof. in a few words the result of years of research by Poltrona Frau.
