Ducati has unveiled the new Diavel V4. The biggest change to the power cruiser’s design is, as the name implies, Bologna’s V4 Granturismo motor. Ducati has made significant styling and chassis modifications to the Diavel for 2023. Let’s see what they are.
Ducati Diavel v4: Design and features
The new V4 is a Diavel in terms of design. The new Diavel V4 still features a muscular tank, large air intakes on each side of the headlamp, a scooped seating position with a narrow tail section, and large rear tyres with huggers. It also has a swingarm with one-sided design. The model has seen some major changes from the Italian manufacturer.
The 2023 Diavel receives a new LED headlight featuring C-shaped LED DRLs. These are two-tone alloys that have a diamond-cut effect. Meanwhile, the rear light now features a series of small LEDs underneath the tail section. This mimics the C-shaped pattern of DRLs up front. To increase the motorcycle’s ‘wow’ factor, Ducati added quad exhaust tips.
The 2023 DucatiDiavel V4 features a 5.0 inch TFT display with Bluetooth and dynamic indicators. It also has launch control, cruise control, launch controller, cruise control, throttle control, wheelie control, cornering ABS, and traction control. Ducati Red and Thrilling black will be the two colors available for the Ducati Diavel V4.
Ducati Diavel v4: Engine Specification
Ducati has replaced the Diavel 1260’s 159hp V-twin engine with the Granturismo V4 motor. This engine powers the Multistrada V4. The 1,158cc liquid-cooled V4 engine produces 168hp at 10,750rpm, and 126Nm torque at 7,500rpm for the new Diavel. The V4 engine has a cylinder activation system that shuts down the rear cylinders when necessary to reduce fuel consumption and heat. A 6-speed gearbox is used to pair the engine with it, which has a bi-directional quickshifter.
