I was stoked to be selected by Cycle World to participate in their 10 Best: Ducati Diavel Riding Experience. Admittedly, there are plenty of other Ducatis that I would choose first…I was still interested in checking out this 162 hp beast.
For being a “cruiser” this thing can do a lot more than cruise. For how wide and big this bike might look, handling is great. The riding position is comfortable but not limiting. Switching through the 3 different riding modes was easy, though I never really left sport mode. We got to tear through the San Diego canyons I was left grinning ear to ear. No doubt the Diavel is a bike that is comfy enough for a long haul but sporty enough for a tear around town. I was impressed.
