The two Italian marques unveil a new ride.

Ducati and Lamborghini is a marriage made in motoring heaven. The desirable pair has a lot in common: both are Italian – from the same area, Emilia-Romagna – and both like to go fast.

So, it should come as no surprise that the latest collaborative effort, the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, from the Italian marques serves up a synergy that few others can match.

The arrival of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini sees immediate design cues from the Raging Bull’s Sian FKP. The motorcycle opts for the very same shades of green and gold that Lambo used to launch the vehicle and has even mimicked the supercars forged wheels.

Beyond colour selection identifying elements of Lamborghini design are the hexagon and the “Y” motif found in the shape of the exhaust and the details of the seat.

Elsewhere, Centro Stile Ducati redesigned numerous panels from the 1260 S from which this bike is based. Carbon fibre additions on the radiator covers, air intakes, silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard and headlight further lighten the load with the bike weighing in at 220kg dry.

“In creating a Diavel inspired by the Siàn, we are celebrating the values we share with Lamborghini: we are Italian, we are sporty, and design is a distinctive element for our creations,” says Andrea Ferraresi, Director of the Centro Stile Ducati.

And yes, it goes fast. At the heart of the motorcycle is the 1262cc Ducati Testastretta DVT, capable of producing 119kW at 9,500rpm and 128Nm at 7500rpm.

Beyond its aggressive design, the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini follows the ergonomics of the Diavel model and offers an exposed tubular steel trellis frame, 240mm wide rear tyre, single-sided aluminium swingarm and fully adjustable Öhlins suspensions at the front and rear. The chassis guarantees high levels of handling and lean angles.

Smart electronics add safety with the bike fitted with Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO, Ducati Power Launch EVO, and cruise control.

The new Diavel 1260 is limited to 630 units and is expected to arrive in February 2021, $48,600.
