Ducati XDiavel S 2020 Naked Bike Review Specs

Ducati XDiavel S 2020 Naked Bike offers the cruiser market in its unique way, representing the best of both worlds. World of Ducati: Outstanding Performance, Athletic Power and Advanced Technologies.

The cruiser’s world is defined by tall, low, forward-positioned foot pieces, tremendous torque at low speeds, and no shortage of materials and finishing.

Ducati joins the cruiser realm in its unique way, providing a real cruiser with all the design, technology, and performance expected from a good Ducati breed. XDiavel combines two worlds: the world of the cruiser (low speed, comfortable ride, long voyage and foot forward ergonomics) and the Ducati world (Italian beauty, superb engineering and unparalleled performance).

The Ducati XDiavel S 2020 Naked Bike offers the adrenaline rush of a cruiser’s “low-speed excitement” and sports rides made by Ducati itself. X in XDiavel means a combination of two seemingly contradictory, distant worlds on a motorcycle, a perfect combination in which both are achieved without compromise.

The XDiavel is Ducati’s first motorcycle with a belt-type final gearbox. Ducati engineers developed this system for XDiavel to enable reliable, secure transmission of the power provided by the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262.

Ducati XDiavel S 2020 Naked Bike – Features and Specs


Long, short, and muscular with modern aesthetics and modern technology. Above all, it is sexy. That’s how Ducati’s XDiavel designers conceived it when they first designed it. A bike built with the cruiser world in mind and Ducati DNA on the other hand. A motorcycle that promotes the idea of a cruiser, offering nothing less than an actual “techno cruiser.”

The proportions, shape and details are undoubtedly cruisers, and everything provides a glimpse into the cruiser’s world, as Ducati has seen. XDiavel is a different form. It draws the eye, frames the entire volume of the bike, balances the wheels, and highlights the engine’s beauty: Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 New Model.

The engine, being the star of the show, has been perfectly engineered to the smallest detail. The primary purpose was to emphasize the intra-cylinder ‘L,’ which is the trademark of every Ducati. The overall layout is sleek and straightforward, resulting from a solid collaboration between engineers and designers. The ultimate effect is the height of the future of mechanics and technology not only as performance-driven practical features but also as pure beauty.

XDiavel with its extreme dimensions, was deliberately created “element by element.” The small and modern frame can be immediately recognized as a Ducati Trellis frame. The steel teardrop tank is reminiscent of the cruiser world but it also contains the DNA of Monster and Devil.

The headlamp, a new version of the traditional Ducati nude headlight, now includes a unique DRL, making the bike instantly recognizable. Like tailpieces, silencers, and sets, each element has its focus but when combined, they form a highly harmonious, balanced whole. An orchestra is a group of talented musicians.


The Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is a brand new, Euro 4 type engine with DVT (Desmodromic Variable Time) technology. It was first introduced on the Multistrada 1200 and has since been reconsidered and calibrated to produce high torque even at low revs, with uninterrupted low rpm power delivery and high. Provides entire torque curve up to review. The Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 produces 156 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 13.1 kW of torque at 5,000 rpm.

Due to the use of valve timing adjustments at the ends of each of the two overhead camshafts, the DVT system can freely differentiate the time between both the intake and exhaust valve camshafts. The DVT is divided into two parts: an external element securely attached to the pulley driven by a timing belt and an internal pre-coaxial component based on the oil pressure in the specific chambers. It can rotate sooner or later. Special valves regulate the oil pressure, and a sensor in the cam core dynamically controls the timing of each camera.

The Ducati XDiavel S 2020 Naked Bike twin-cylinder Ducati engine has a displacement of 1262 cm3 and a bore stroke dimension of 106 x 71.5 mm (as opposed to 106 x 67.9 mm on the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1200). This Multistrada offers a compression ratio of over 1200 engines, now 13: 1 (as opposed to 12.5); So far, it has the same Bosch electronic injection system with elliptical throttle bodies with a diameter of 56mm and a ride-by-wire system that has been redesigned.

The top end of the Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 has been wholly replaced. Both cylinders have frame attachments at the ends, and the horizontal has been changed so that the rider’s foot pieces can be further advanced. The crankshaft has a new balance system.

The DVT also has a dual spark (DS) system (two plugs per cylinder) and a secondary air system, which completes the oxidation of burnt hydrocarbons and lower levels of pollutants such as HC and CO without affecting engine performance. Pumps fresh air into the exhaust duct.

The Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262, of course, uses a desmodromic engine valve closing mechanism that has made the Ducati famous all over the world. This technology allows the intake and exhaust valves to close positively with the same accuracy and efficiency when they are opened.


The XDiavel plays Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262, a stressed chassis member with a steel tubular trail frame. The frame, as well as the shell cast aluminum subframe, are attached to the engine on two cylinder heads. Two forged aluminum plates (machine-made on the S variant) surround the swing arm and connect to the engine. The lower half of the swing arm is inserted, while the upper trail section has a forged, separating element that allows the transmission belt to be removed.

Despite its 1615mm wheelbase, the XDiavel’s nimble chassis shape and ability to achieve lean angles of up to 40 on mixed road routes promise actual performance for the Ducati.


The Ducati XDiavel S 2020 Naked Bike is equipped with 50 mm Marzocchi forks with black anodized sleeves, fully adjusted rebound and compression damping, and spring preload (the S version also has fork tubes with DLC coating). The left fork tube has damping compression and spring pre-load adjustment, while the right tube has rebound adjustment. XDiavel has cast aluminum sleeved fork yokes with risers that support 32 mm diameter aluminum alloy handlebar and 22 mm diameter outer rubber fitted tubes. The XDiavel has impressive front-end agility and feels, with headstock racks of 30 ° and 130 mm offset, guarantees exceptional handling and a large steering lock.

Instead, the XDiavel has a Sachs monoshock with adjustable spring preload and dampening rebound and separate storage at the back. The shock absorber installed practically horizontally works in conjunction with the progressive link.


With the M4 32 radial monoblock calipers (M50 on the S version), the Brembo brakes offer exceptional performance on the front end of the XDiavel. They are powered by a PR18 / 19 radial brake pump with an integrated aluminum reservoir. The caliper holds two 320 floating discs. At the rear, the 265mm disc is slowed down by a 2-piston PF 30/32 caliper designed by Brembo.

Tires and wheels

XDiavel mounted on 14-spoke wheels. The bike has a 3.5 “x 17” front wheel and an 8 “x 17” rear wheel. The specially machined 12-spoke wheels on the XDiavel S on the other hand put design at the forefront.

The front wheel is equipped with a standard 120/70 ZR17 tire with a modified treadmill to maximize wet weather performance. The rear tire is 240/45 ZR17 from Pirelli. Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires are included with the motorcycle.

Significant rear tires incorporate dual compound technology and EPT (enhanced patch technology) to maximize the contact area at any lean angle, providing better traction when bending towards a turn while ensuring exceptional mileage. Walking design and carefully selected compounds offer the best performance regardless of driving conditions.
