Ducati Diavel gets early unveil

A scant few photos and a quick hit of information about the all-new Ducati Diavel have slipped out ahead of the bike’s unveil at EICMA. According to the crew at Hell for Leather, the sculpture you see above packs a full 162 horsepower, 94 pound-feet of torque and tips the scales at a feathery 456 pounds. And that’s just the base version. Apparently the Italian moto-maker is also offering a Diavel Carbon version that makes use of plenty of carbon fiber to shed an additional seven pounds from the recipe.
Aside from the pants-soiling power, the Diavel also comes loaded with more technology than ought to be possible. There’s a ride-by-wire throttle system, traction control, anti-lock brakes, a keyless ignition and a tank-mounted, light-sensing TFT display packed into the beast you see above. Sounds fun, but we can hardly look at the bike without getting our eyeballs stuck on that epic 240 millimeter-wide tire. Hey, all that power has to get to the pavement somehow.
