Ducati Diavel Cromo: ooh, shiny

Lending the Ducati Diavel a much-needed classic air, it’s amazing the effect a little chrome and some classic badges can have on a bike. Add to that list the ribbed seat and black paint and you actually have, for possibly the first time, a pretty Diavel.

    Now if we could only shrink that back rubber down to 200mm…

    I’d hit it, and +1 on a normalish rear tire.

      Agree. Plus, the lighting in the photos hides all the ugly in the shadows.

    Saw a Diavel at the Ducati display in Indy this summer. All decked-out in black carbon with other upgrades, it was by far the most impressive machine at the raceway. Well the #46 was quite awesome…

    Looks like I’m not the only ‘ Firefly’ / ‘ Serenity ‘ fan around these here parts

    ( the ‘ Shiny ‘ comment )

    As for the Diavel . It serves a purpose ( increased sales )

    Any clue/info how well the little Devil is selling Wes ?

    I checked carefully.

    Nup. Still ugly…

    I can’t help it, every time I look at the Diavel it seems to look better. The accents on the cromo are just accelerating the process.

    Ok, the ribbed seat now thoroughly convinces me that the Diavel is no more than Ducati’s equivalent to a pack of Magnums.

    Sorry, to me it still looks like a cod-piece on two wheels.

    I can’t imagine you’d buy one if you were a competent fast rider & confident of your sexuality.

      You’re right; if I had the money to spend on a diavel I would get a multistrada.

    lot’s of muppets raving on about what they don’t know…
