100 miles per tank means there is something wrong with your bike or the way you fill up. I got better than that even riding at the track (OK, not really.... ). I ride like a fucking nutjob and fuel economy on the Diavel is actually quite decent... high 30s even! With mixed riding the light comes up between 110 and 120 miles for me. Then you got 15 to 20 miles (max!) left. It's the same as most sportbikes. Not a touring bike, but perfectly acceptable for my needs. I've said it before and I'll repeat it: I think the Diavel is the greatest bike Ducati has ever made - and yes, I've had a few... It's like all of the Ducati ingredients came together into a perfect motorcycle soup... the motor is beastly, the ergos are excellent, the electronics are awesome. I even LOVE the way it looks - but I have a Carbon Red with full Termis. The splash of color really helps with the look of the bike, and removing the stock pipes makes the right side much more handsome. The bike's finish is beyond good - it's Honda good. Mine is just about to turn 2 and it looks like it just left the showroom. The suspension comes over-preloaded (like most Ducatis I've tried) but when adjusted properly it is excellent. The brakes are spectacular and let the beast stop like nothing else - between the wheelbase and the rear tire you can grab as huge a handful of those Brembo monoblocs as your grip will muster, and the bike will obey without protesting. A couple of helpful hints: - If you get one make sure you get adjustable rearsets and raise them an inch or so. The stockers are cheap and drag far too easily. I got Satos on mine and they are excellent. - Have the suspension properly set. The first few session at the track ground clearance was a big issue, I was dragging hard parts well before running out of lean. A few adjustments later and thing improved drastically. The handling of the bike in unreal... it is no S1000RR but I was keeping up with sportbikes just fine (many of them, at least... ). The biggest difference is that the Diavel is actually relaxing to ride at the track. It's really a low, long naked bike with a fat tire designed specifically for it by Pirelli -it handles amazingly well. If you found it "reluctant to turn" it most likely had a tire past its prime. When the rear tire flattens the handling suffers drastically. That tire has a huge influence on the turning speed, obviously. As far as the bike "wanting to stand when accelerating out of corners," well... I don't know of any bike that does not want to do that. It's physics... A final point: to this day my Diavel has been flawless. Not a problem, a hiccup, a stall, a gremlin or an issue. Perfect. From day 1. A Ducati. This has never happened to me before - I have my doubts it'll ever happen again. My Diavel is the only Ducati that I have loved unconditionally - I could not recommend it more.
