Ducati and Italian luxury furniture maker Poltrona Frau joined creative forces to bring a sophisticated Ducati XDiavel Nera to life. The motorcycle features unique aesthetics and will be produced in a numbered edition limited to 500 units.
The new XDiavel Nera is dressed in the “Black on Black” livery while its brake calipers and engine head covers come in Ducati Red color and the lightened and fully machined forged rims, painted in gloss black. The bike’s special seat is crafted of Pelle Frau – a soft natural leather saddled by hand, the result of years of research by Poltrona Frau. It is available in five 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 recalls the name of the bike.
XDiavel draws its power from the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine which, in combination with the final belt drive, ensures smooth delivery at low revs and a full curve up to the highest revs. The Testastretta DVT 1262, visible in the center of the bike, in Euro5 configuration delivers a maximum power output of 160 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13.0 kgm at 5,000 rpm. The chassis, the reduced height from the ground of the saddle (755 mm) and the forward position of the footpegs are designed to offer great riding ease and comfort.
The elegant motorcycle is fitted at the rear with a 240 mm wide tire mounted on a rim with an 8” channel that makes it easily recognizable from any angle. The particular profile of the tire also allows a maximum lean angle of 40°, an incredible value for a motorcycle of this type. The braking system is powerful and modular and is equipped with ABS Cornering. At the front, it features Brembo monobloc M50 calipers and two 320 mm discs, while at the rear we can find a single 265 mm disc.
The lighting system is full-LED with a DRL daytime running light system on the front. The new XDiavel is fitted with Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which, by measuring the roll and pitch angles as well as the speed of the relative set-up variations, provides the information to ABS Cornering. This system, together with Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Riding Modes, Cruise Control, and Ducati Power Launch (DPL), make the XDiavel Nera a high-performance and safe motorcycle.
The XDiavel Nera can already be ordered with the seat in the preferred color and it’ll hit Ducati dealerships starting from March 2022. Lucky owners will also receive an exclusive keyring and document holder made of Pelle Frau leather in the matching color to the one selected for the saddle.
