Ducati launches the XDiavel Black Star and XDiavel Dark in India. The brand has launched two new BS6 models: the XDiavel Dark and the XDiavel Black Star. The XDiavel Dark is priced at INR 18.00 Lacs while the XDiavel Black Star will cost INR 22.60 Lacs.
Mr. Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “The XDiavel range was the result of our efforts to bring two universes together. We wanted to build a bike that offered the comfort of the cruiser and the performance of a sport-focused bike. XDiavel has wowed and attracted massive following all over the world and offers a wholesome riding experience in an incredibly attractive looking package. The XDiavel is the perfect supplement to the existing Diavel range yet offers a lot more ‘devil’ both, inside &
out. I am delighted that the XDiavel Black Star and XDiavel Dark are finally here as India has a big community of riders who love cruisers, and I am sure they will appreciate a cruiser which serves a unique flavor of comfort and pure, unadulterated performance.”
As part of the standard equipment list, both bikes get Riding Modes, Power Modes, Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control, full-LED lighting system, Ducati Power Launch, Cruise control, Hands-free, backlit
handlebar switches, 3.5” TFT colour display.
As for the powertrain, both the new versions have the twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 BS-6 compliant engine. To comply with the new emission regulations, an updated silencer layout, a new design, derived from the Diavel 1260, and a new engine calibration have been adopted. In this way, both the XDiavel motorcycles now deliver a maximum power of 160 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13.0 kgm at 5,000 rpm with an increase, compared to the BS-4 version, of 8 hp and 0.2 kgm.
Differentiating from the XDiavel Dark, the XDiavel Black Star gets adjustable Ø 50 mm USD fork
with DLC treatment, forged rims which are entirely machined and painted in gloss black, which enhance
the aesthetics of the bike and lighten it. The Black Star also gets high-grip suede fabric seat that appeals to its sporty nature.
