2023 XDiavel Nera Ducati Naked Motorcycle – Features and Specs

Numbered and limited edition

The XDiavel Nera will be manufactured in a limited edition of 500 numbered units. On the trellis frame is a dedicated plate bearing the serial number.

Saddled by hand

The most distinguishing feature of the XDiavel Nera is the special seat made of Pelle Frau: a supple, natural leather saddled by hand, the outcome of years of research by Poltrona Frau. It is available in five colors (Siam Red, Steel Blue, Cemento, India, and Selva) and is customized with a series of laser-engraved “X”s that allude to the bike’s name.

Techno cruiser Soul

Ducati’s XDiavel Nera exemplifies the force of opposition by coupling the cruiser-like pace with Ducati’s agile ride and exhilarating performance. The Testastretta DVT 1262 twin-cylinder engine is the throbbing Centre of the XDiavel. The chassis, suspension, braking system, and electronic equipment contribute to the vehicle’s comfort, safety, and performance.

Unique and unmistakable

Each saddle is handcrafted from natural Pelle Frau Leather and is available in five colors directly from the Poltrona Frau Color palette. Additionally, an expanded comfort saddle and a backrest, also crafted from Pelle Frau Leather, are appropriate for two-person travel without sacrificing elegance.

Equipment supplied

The 500 Ducatisti fans who order the XDiavel Nera will also receive a Pelle Frau Leather key ring and document receptacle in the saddle’s color.

Dedicated jet helmet

The new XDiavel Nera is distinguished by its “Black on Black” livery, which alternates glossy and matte black sections. This livery makes the XDiavel even sportier and is reflected in the aircraft helmet that XDiavel Nera owners can purchase alongside the motorcycle.

Power & Elegance. Together.

The beating heart of the XDiavel Nera, the Testastretta DVT 1262 produces 152 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 92.9 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm*. Desmodromic Variable Timing, the variable valve timing with a desmodromic distribution system, enables theoretically contradictory objectives to be attained: prompt and seamless response at low rpm, generous torque throughout the torque curve, and sports performance when the throttle is fully advanced.

The bike’s chassis, its low saddle height, and its forward-positioned foot pedals are all designed to provide exceptional pedaling ease and comfort at low velocities while also making sports riding as enjoyable as possible. The steel tube trellis structure, suspension system, and chassis design ensure maneuverability and agility. As with the entire Ducati lineup, the brake system is potent, adjustable, and equipped with cornering ABS. The electronic equipment is incredibly comprehensive and enables you to improve performance and safety significantly.

“Black on black” livery with five different colors for the saddle

The elegant “Black on Black” livery, in which gloss and matte black portions alternate, combines with the special seat made of Pelle Frau: a leather that combines the classic characteristics of the high-end furnishings sector with the need to achieve the ultimate performance in terms of durability, as befits XDiavel Nera.

It is a natural, full-grain leather that is supple, silken, and refined and acquires character with use. In a few sentences, the result of Poltrona Frau’s years of investigation. A sophisticated laser process is used to engrave a series of “XS” on the saddle, recalling the name of the cycle. Poltrona Frau Artisans handcraft the saddles at their Tolentino facility in the Centre of Marche.
