Ducati has expanded the Diavel 1260 line-up with a new special edition that is inspired by the one-off Diavel “Materico” presented by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer in 2019. Meet the 2022 Ducati Diavel 1260 S “Black and Steel”, a limited edition model that follows on from the stunning Diavel 1260 “Lamborghini” that was released by Ducati a few months back as a tribute to the Sian FKP 37 hybrid hypercar. As the name suggests, the special edition is based on the 2022 Ducati Diavel 1260 S variant and what sets it apart from the regular version is its beautiful color scheme. The unique livery of the “Black and Steel” is characterized by its “asymmetrical and refined graphics that combine glossy grey and matt black as the main colors, to which are added sporty touches in yellow.”
“The Ducati Diavel 1260 family, synonymous with style, innovation, and performance, has won prestigious international design awards such as the ‘Red Dot Award’ and the ‘Good Design Award’. We are really pleased to present this new version in Milan, a city that has always represented a world benchmark in this sector,” said Director of the Ducati Style Centre Andrea Ferraresi. “The Diavel 1260 S ‘Black and Steel’ is a bike that does not go unnoticed.”
The special edition is mechanically identical to the motorcycle it’s based on. Powering it is Ducati’s 1262 cc Testastretta DVT engine that churns out 162 hp. The 2022 Ducati Diavel 1260 S “Black and Steel” will make its public debut at the 2021 edition of the MIMO Motor Show in Milan that opens today. It will be available in dealerships starting from July 2021, but the pricing is yet to be announced by Ducati. Just for reference, the Lamborghini edition was launched at $31,995 and the newest special edition might carry a similar price tag.
