Ducati motorcycles have always had very Italian design influences. Sporty, flowing lines coupled with outstanding performance is one of its hallmarks. It’s these design influences that give the Ducati brand special something. So it’s not surprising to hear that Ducati’s Diavel has won another design award.
This time, the machine won the “Good Design Award” given by the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. The “Good Design Award” is very prestigious and acknowledges global excellence in design. Previously, the machine won the European design prize; the Red Dot Award.
The Diavel 1260 is a power-cruiser that combines naked performance with muscle cruiser egonomics. This year’s bike represents the second generation of the model but retains the spirit of the original.
The heart of the machine is its 159hp Testrastretta DVT 1262cc engine. For 2020, the unconventional machine sports two new color schemes. First, the Dark Stealth color, a totally “blacked out” look is available on the non “S” version. And, the Diavel “S” version will be available with an all-new Ducati Red with white trim and a red seat tail. This new paint scheme emphasizes the sport and power-cruiser spirit of the Diavel model.
This latest design award acknowledges that the Ducati Diavel is a world-class machine with world-class design.
