Limited edition Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini draws inspiration from 820PS Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
The two premium Italian automobile brands, Ducati and Lamborghini have come together for the former's latest offering that will be sold in limited numbers. The motorcycle is the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini and the numbers that Ducati is planning to make are 630 units, inspired by the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37. If you aren't aware already, the Sian FPK 37 had a production run of 63 units only. Also, the presence of 63 stands out on the livery, an important number for the Sant'Agata Bolognese manufacturer, which was founded in 1963. With every motorcycle, Ducati will offer exclusive helmet with special graphics coordinated with the bike, designed by the Centro Stile Ducati.
The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the result of the joint work between the Centro Stile Ducati and the Centro Stile Lamborghini. It was conceived by transferring the basic components of the design of the Sian FKP 37 to the motorcycle world and redesigning the parts that most characterize the Diavel, states Ducati. First of all, the forged wheels, light and with a new design, but also the air intakes and radiator covers, made of carbon fibre and designed by superimposing floating elements onto the main structure.
Powering the power cruiser is the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT with variable timing. This Euro 5 homologated engine is capable of delivering 162PS at 9,500 rpm and 129Nm at 7,500 rpm with a flat torque curve right from medium-low revs. The livery of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini was achieved by using exactly the same paints as those on the Sian FKP 37, with the bodywork characterized by the Gea Green colour, while the frame, the seat tail and the forged rims are embellished with the use of Electrum Gold colour. There is also a touch of Ducati Red recalled by the colouring of the Brembo M50 radial mount brake calipers.
The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini comes with exposed tubular steel trellis frame, the 240 mm wide rear tyre, the single-sided aluminium swingarm and the fully adjustable Öhlins suspensions at the front and rear. The motorcycle has a dry weight of 220kg which is a result of forged wheels and carbon fibre components. Further, this iteration of the Diavel also gets Bosch's 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU), Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC), Ducati Power Launch EVO (DPL) and Cruise Control.
The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini joins the Diavel 1260 range, which for 2021 will see all its models obtain Euro 5 approval, in the countries that adopt this legislation. The Diavel 1260, in Dark Stealth colour, and the 1260 S, available in red and black, with the new homologation are already available in Ducati dealers, while the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini will be from the end of December.
