Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini 2021: 630 units produced and already sold
1 March 2021
The look for the brand new Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini 2021 was inspired by the extravagant Siàn FKP37. The union of these two great brands, Ducati and Lamborghini, has enabled an exquisite collaboration emerging from the Volkswagen / Audi Group, although Lamborghini has been the Pramac Racing team’s MotoGP “sponsor” for a few years already. The Ducati Diavel’s 17-inch forged wheels reference those of the Lamborghini; the same is true for the underbody tank in Electrum Gold, the green Verde Gea of the superstructure contrasting with the frame, the air intakes, and the carbon radiator covers, among other things.
Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini: More power
The 1262 cc Variable Valve Timing Ducati Testastretta DVT engine produces up to 162 hp at 9500 rpm and 129 Nm (13.2 kgm) at 7500 rpm with a flat torque curve from low to mid revs, ensuring a powerful and dynamic response at all times. The chassis consists of a single-sided swingarm and fully adjustable Ohlins front and rear suspension. Thanks to its all-wheel-drive system, the Lamborghini goes from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 2.8 seconds, and can reach over 350 km / h at maximum performance.
The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini also features: driving modes, 6-axle IMU, traction control, active cornering ABS, daytime running lights signature, anti-wheeling, power modes, keyless start, launch control, backlit switchgear, full LED lighting, cruise control, and multimedia system. When you start the bike, the logos of both brands appear on the TFT color monitor, along with the bike’s silhouette – Ducati’s signature.
The extensive collaboration between the “Centro Stile Ducati” and the “Centro Stile Lamborghini” has given us the stunning result that is the Lamborghini Diavel 1260. The Ducati motorcycle has been adorned in exactly the same paints as the ones used for the exotic Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37. Its palette is characterized by the bodywork’s “Verde Gea” green, which is complemented by the “Electrum Gold”, the design of the frame, the underbody and the forged rims. Ducati’s classic red is thus only present in the color scheme of the Brembo brake calipers.
Completing the extensive list of features that make the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini such a distinctive icon of design, we have a variety of carbon parts. These include the radiator and air intake covers, the silencer cover, the spoiler, the center tank cover, the seat cover, the front and rear fenders, the dash cover, and the headlight frame. What else could you ask for?
Did you know?
- Referencing the Lamborghini, the paintwork features the number 63, which refers to the 1963 founding of the house of Sant’Agata Bolognese. This also relates to the number of models that will be produced: precisely 630, to honor the car brand’s date of formation.
- Technically speaking, this motorcycle’s production figures are the same as for the current Diavel 1260 Black Star and Dark.
- Lamborghini has planned a total of 63 cars (seeing as the brand was founded in 1963) and if you multiply this number by ten, you get the number of bikes.
- Buyers will also be able to acquire a custom helmet made by the Ducati Style Center.
