Ducati Announces Special-Edition 2022 Diavel 1260 S “Black and Steel”. It’s set to hit dealerships next month. Until then, feel free to drool over their extensive photo gallery.
A few months ago, Ducati stunned the motorcycle realm with their limited-edition Diavel 1260 “Lamborghini” – a two-wheeled tribute to the Sian FKP 37, essentially. Needless to say, this ravishing marvel was extremely well received, so it only makes sense for the Italian manufacturer to introduce more special variants of the almighty Diavel, right?
Well, Bologna’s engineers have indeed been preparing yet another surprise for diehard Ducatistas, which was finally unveiled earlier today. Ladies and gents, we have the pleasure of introducing you to the 2022 Diavel 1260 S “Black and Steel.” This fascinating machine will be exhibited for the very first time at the MIMO Motor Show starting tomorrow, until June 13.
The event will take place at the epicenter of Milan, where the public will be able to admire the Duc in all its glory and meet Andrea Ferraresi, the director of Ducati’s Style Center. Here’s what he had to say about the company’s most recent endeavor: “The Diavel 1260 S Black and Steel is a bike that does not go unnoticed. Its asymmetrical graphics, the contrast between matte black, grey and touches of yellow have been designed to enhance the power, design and sportiness of this bike.”
To be frank, we’d say they certainly achieved what they were after. We just love the way that yellow paintwork draws your attention to the Diavel’s iconic frame, which stands out in contrast to the stealthy bodywork. The new color scheme was partially influenced by a concept presented at the Milan Design Week back in 2019, namely the “Materico.”
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait that long for the Black and Steel to be released, as this bad boy will arrive in dealerships as early as July, 2021. At the time of this article, pricing remains a mystery, but we’re inclined to think this beast won’t be cheap, since last year’s homage to Lambo’s Sian FKP 37 was priced at a whopping $31,995.
