2019 XDiavel S Ducati Naked Motorcycle – Features


Beautiful, robust, and sophisticated are all unique words that come to me when I think of you. The new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is the latest development of the Testastretta engine, and it powers the XDiavel.

2019 XDiavel S Ducati Naked Motorcycle

An all-new Testastretta DVT 1262 is a bike purely designed by Ducati. The more significant displacement, paired with the new DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) technology, provides complete yet fluid torque circulation even at low speeds while preserving sports performance at full throttle. Furthermore, the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is attractively styled.

The bike by numbers

5.000, 147, and 40 are the numbers. The XDiavel S idea is summed up in three unique numbers. 5000 is the RPMs at which the engine yields maximum torque, 147 represents its ergonomic configurations for the rider, and 40 is its maximum lean angle.

Tires & Wheels

The new 2019 XDiavel S Ducati Naked Motorcycle features unique curved 12-spoke wheels with visible finishes that complement the design. An all-new regular 120/70 ZR17 tire with a revised tread is attached on the front wheel, while an all-new 240/45 ZR17 tire is fixed on the rear wheel. Pirelli Diablo Rosso II is on its cover to ensure perfect grip. The huge rear tire has double compound technology to deliver traction during severe cornering while guaranteeing good mileage and engaging Enhanced Patch Technology to enhance the contact area at any lean angle. In all situations, the new tread design and chemicals provide excellent performance.

Riding Mode

The new 2019 XDiavel S Ducati Naked Motorcycle incorporates advanced Ducati technological advancements, such as Riding Modes. The three Riding Modes are designed to change the XDiavel’s “character” instantaneously. These Modes combine cutting-edge technology like Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), and Bosch ABS Cornering systems. Riding around town requires shifting focus away from the accelerator and into the surroundings: the XDiavel’s character transforms quickly in the urban model, changing it into a safe and straightforward way of transportation. Its engine power is decreased to 100 Hp, the DTC is set to level Six, and the ABS is set to Safe and Stable so that the vehicle may travel safely, even on uneven ground and in heavy city traffic.

In Touring Riding Mode, the engine delivers 152 hp while preserving a smooth and easy-to-handle power curve. The DTC is set to level Four, and the ABS is set to Safe and Stable, resulting in a smooth and comfortable ride suited for optimal comfort for the passenger and rider on lengthy excursions. With a precise, the engine releases 152 horsepower in Sport Riding Mode, pure joy. To get the most out of the XDiavel S’s performance, The DTC is reduced to level 2 in Sport Mode, and the ABS is switched to Sport mode.

Full LED lighting system with DRL

A prominent front headlight with Daytime Running Light is featured on the XDiavel S. (in countries where it is allowed). The DRL is a special light that guarantees the bike’s visibility throughout the day and, owing to its unique shape, makes the 2019 XDiavel S easily recognizable even in direct sunshine.

Belt Transmission

The Ducati XDiavel S is the first bike to use a belt final drive system. Ducati professionals created the system specifically for the XDiavel S to provide dependable and safe power transfer provided by the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262. The belt’s advantages include easy cleaning, low noise, inexpensive maintenance, and a fluid reaction to gas opening, as befits a true cruiser.

Forward Footpegs

When designing the XDiavel S, the engineers and designers started with a simple concept: a comfortable riding position similar to a cruiser with a low seat height and forward footpegs. But it wasn’t the only prerequisite: the ergonomics had to be modular, permitting the rider to blend into the motorcycle like a tailored garment. As a result, the XDiavel S’s footpegs may be altered in three locations as usual. A Ducati Performance kit will also be an optional extra for those riders who want a sportier riding stance.

Adjustable Suspension

The XDiavel S includes a 50mm of diameter front fork having black anodized sheaths that can be changed in compression and extension, as well as spring preload when using hydraulic brakes (the S version also has stems including DLC coating). The new compression register and spring preload are on the left stem of the fork, while the extension register is on the right. The XDiavel S’s setup allows for a quick and responsive front end including a 30-degree steering inclination and a 130 mm trail, ensuring excellent handling and a unique steering angle. The XDiavel S features an adjustable mono-shock in the spring preload and extension, as well as a separate gasoline tank in the back. The new shock absorber that is practically horizontally mounted operates in tandem including progressive kinematics.

Braking System

As part of the ultimate Ducati Safety Pack, the Ducati XDiavel S comes standard with the new Brembo brake system, including Bosch 9.1ME ABS Cornering (DSP). ABS Turning uses Bosch’s IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to enhance the front and rear wheel braking power, even in critical conditions and cornering. The technology being used in the Riding Mode may adapt to various situations and riding styles. Brembo S’s high-quality components, paired with Bosch’s anti-lock braking system, The XDiavel S’s specialized suspension setup, and Pirelli Enhanced Patch Technology guarantee superb braking performance and ultimate safety in all situations and for riders of any skill level.

The system can be less or more sensitive, and the rider can easily choose the amount of intervention based on their skill and road type. Sport, Expert and Safe & Stable are the three different ABS profiles available, and they are preset as standard in each of the three different Riding Modes. Still, they may be accessed separately via a user-friendly menu.

Exhaust System

The XDiavel S’s exhaust is a two-in-one design, including a chamber body and two terminals. The new exhaust pipes were meant to make the engine recognizable, while the central body was placed in front of the rear tire nearly inconspicuous.


The new Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electrical link between the engine and the gasoline grip on the XDiavel S that allows an ideal power level to be set, giving to the selected Riding Mode. The power supplied by the powerful engine is no longer administered entirely and directly by the accelerator cable. Instead, it runs via the control unit that electronically controls the opening of the throttle based on the signal received.

To achieve electricity supply, the RbW system employs three distinct mappings: In Sport Riding Mode, the engine produces 152 horsepower. In Touring Riding Mode, the engine harvests 152 horsepower. In Urban Riding Mode, the engine yields 100 horsepower.
