The 2018 XDiavel S will get suspension updates and come in white
Ducati had launched the XDiavel S as a more relaxed touring alternative to the Diavel. The XDiavel S also allows Ducati an entry into the cruiser segment and appeal to those who wanted a cruiser with more power, sophistication, and appeal.
A large part of the XDiavel S’ appeal lies in its powerful 1262cc Testastretta L-Twin which gets Ducati’s Desmodromic Variable Timing. The bike makes 152PS at 9500rpm and 126Nm at 5000rpm. The bike gets top-spec fully adjustable suspension and tyres and rider aids that make it a tourer that can corner as well as a superbike. Goodies include full-LED headlamp and tail lamp, keyless ignition, bluetooth, ride-by-wire, three riding modes, power modes, launch control, cornering ABS and cruise control.
