For the past several weeks, we’ve all enjoyed Ducati’s series of videos hyping new limited edition bikes. The 7th installment of the Ducati World Premiere featured the Desert X and the Streetfighter V2. Elegant and custom-built, one of the bikes shown in the most recent episode is no exception.
Poltrona Frau is an Italian furniture conglomerate. The world’s most affluent and well-known own pieces from them because of their incomparable artistry. The two firms have reimagined one of Ducati’s most iconic models. Ducati’s high-capacity techno cruiser gets a stunning yet understated makeover. All thanks to the XDiavel Nera cooperation.
Unlike other motorcycles, the XDiavel’s personality strongly emphasizes individuality. You can personalize the seat color for a chic two-person ride and add a wider comfort saddle and a backrest made of Pelle Frau® leather.
Build & Design
Ducati XDiavel Nera is the result of a fusion of two different worlds. Something is calming about cruising, but there is also something thrilling about Ducati. The final belt drive and the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine give smooth delivery at low RPMs and full curves up to the highest RPMs.
The Testastretta DVT 1262, which exhibits in the middle of the bike, delivers 160 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 13.0 Kgm at 5,000 RPM. Low saddle height (755 mm) and forward footpeg position design provide excellent riding ease. It offers comfort at low speeds while providing thrill at high speeds.
Tubular steel trellis frame, front, and rear suspension, and chassis. It boosts the front axle’s agility and controllability. The bike’s 8″ channel on the rear makes it recognizable, making it an essential part of its aesthetics.
Suspensions & ABS unit
A 40-degree most lean angle is possible thanks to the tyre’s unusual design, which is usual for a bike of this sort. A powerful and adjustable braking system is standard, with ABS Cornering included as an option.
Brembo monobloc M50 calipers and two 320 mm discs at the front, and a 265 mm disc at the rear are fitted to the car’s braking system. Daytime running lights on the front bumper are recognizable and impact the vehicle’s appearance.
By measuring the relative roll, pitch, and speed of set-up adjustments, the XDiavel Nera has an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from Bosch that is sent into ABS Cornering. It is a high-tech, high-performance, and safe motorcycle, the XDiavel Nera.
Poltrona Frau’s high-end auto upholstery and finish division, Interiors in Motion, is part of the company. Despite the firm’s vast selection of top-quality leathers, Ducati will only build 500 XDiavel Nears.
Special features include Poltrona Frau’s proprietary Pelle Frau leather saddle. The design is to order and offers a wide range of customization options. Abrasion resistance and suppleness make this premium skin selection suitable for motorcycle saddles.
The saddle of the Ducati XDiavel Nera is available in five different colors. The critical chain and matching document holder, both made of Pelle Frau, further enhance the bike’s uniqueness. Ducati’s Testastretta DVT 1262 engine powers the XDiavel. The XDiavel is a strong cruiser with 160 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque.
With its “Black on Black” paint, the new XDiavel Nera boasts both gloss and matte black sections. The XDiavel Nera has a sportier look thanks to this livery. It comes in the Ducati Jet helmet that comes with the bike.
From 2022, the XDiavel Nera will be available in Ducati dealerships with the seat of your choosing. XDiavel S and XDiavel Dark join the XDiavel family. For more updates on Ducati XDiavel Nera keep visiting BikersInsider.
