Mr. Mirko Bordiga, CEO DUCATI Asia Pacific said that “The Diavel is, without any doubt, the most exciting innovation in the Ducati 2011 line because it represents a new concept of motorcycle, It is a naked bike because it is essential, light and agile; a cruiser because it is imposing and also comfortable with a passenger; and a sports bike because it has a powerful heart, muscles, and levels of performance that take your breath away. Until now ,no segment has ever captured these characteristics in just one motorcycle. We are extremely satisfied with the Diavel, it represents the very concept of sport and celebrates all that Ducati has achieved in recent years. If the Multistrada 1200 represents the perfect synthesis between functionality and performance, the Diavel creates a new interpretation of performance, this time combined with technology and design.”
