BS6 Ducati Diavel 1260 Launched In India At A Price Of Rs 18.49 Lakh
If we look briefly at last year, Ducati India did not do so in 2020. The epidemic has damaged a number of times and just a few BS6-compliant bikes could be launched last year, but the figure is different in 2021. Ducati India is in a rush to liberate all the animals it has held in captivity. Ducati India has also released the Diavel 1260, in addition to the upgraded Panigale V4. BS6 Ducati Diavel 1260, a standard model in India, is priced at Rs 18.49 lakh. The S model priced Rs 21.49 lakh on the other hand (both prices, ex-showroom).
The base model is available in the color of Dark Stealth, while version S is available in Ducati Red and Thrilling Black. A muscular tank with a stepped-up seat, radiator shrouds, a single-sided swingarm, and dual exhaust tips is included in the BS6 Ducati Diavel 1260.
A BS6-compliant 1262cc Testastretta L-twin engine connected to the 6-speed gearbox power the Ducati Diavel 1260. At 9500rpm and a peak torque of 129Nm at 7500rpm the mill produces a maximum power of 162hp.
It was not that tough for the biker to comply with the stricter standards. An optional two-way quick-shifter will be provided. It is made up of ABA curving, traction control, drive modes, power modes, start-up control, control wheels, and the cruise control system. The electronic rider supports the workings with the IMU six-axis motorbike. The range of functions includes full-LED and a 3.5-inch color TFT display in the Ducati Multimedia System.
The hardware comprises an upside-down front fork and an upside-down mono-shock in the basic variant. Brembo M4.32 calipers are used for braking on the basic model. On the other hand, the S model is provided with a more premium, Ohlins-sourced suspension and monobloc calipers from Brembo M50. The 1260 S additionally has amenities like the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) for telephonic communication and turn-over navigation, while the cluster TFT is 3.5-inch with backlit switchgear.
Whether Ducati India will launch the Lamborghini version or not remains to be seen. The BS6 Ducati Diavel is, however, a welcome addition to the Indian portfolio of the company as it is also quite popular here.
