Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini Looks Stunning

by Daniel Patrascu from In November last year, Italian bike maker Ducati broke the mold when it pulled the wraps off a Diavel variant meant to honor parent company Lamborghini. We’re talking about a limited production run the likes of which not all of us will get to see in the metal, let alone experience first hand. Thank God for Youtube, then, and rich vloggers. Ducati said there would be just 630 of these incredible machines made, priced a hell of a lot more than the most potent Diavel in the regular range, at $31,995. Then again, one can’t expect to use premium and pay standard… It would seem deliveries of the two-wheeler have already begun. Below this text is a video posted a couple of days ago by the Supercars of London Youtube channel, whose owner steps out of a Nissan GT-R (he makes sure to mention this every chance he gets) to take possession of the two-wheeler in Cambridge. And we must say, the thing is breathtaking in real life, perhaps even more so than in the press photos released last year. Sadly, we don’t get to see it on the move and hear it roar. This Diavel was made to replicate some of the design elements featured on the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37. It sports wheels meant to remind one of those on the car, carbon fiber used extensively on the air intakes, radiator covers, and central tank cover, among others, plus, of course, the signature paint of the Lambo. The bike weighs 220 kg (485 pounds) and gets its forward motion from a 1,262cc Testastretta DVT engine rated at 162 hp at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm (95 lb-ft) at 7,500 rpm. Another nod to the Sian is the number of bikes that will be […]

Lamborghini teams up with Ducati to build a supercar-inspired motorbike

from The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is limited to just 630 units. Ducati and Lamborghini have collaborated on a limited-edition motorcycle inspired by the Sián supercar. The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini combines design features from the two Italian brands’ line-ups, using a Diavel 1260 S as a base but with angular body panels and performance upgrades similar to those found on the Sián. For example, there are lightweight forged alloy wheels, while the air intakes and radiator covers are made from carbon-fibre. This material is used extensively throughout the bike, appearing on the silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard and headlight frame. The body panels are painted in Verde Gea, the muted green used on the Sián show car, but Ducati’s signature red is used for the brake calipers. Mitja Borkert, head of design of Automobili Lamborghini, said: “We are convinced that our design is strong and one of the most recognisable in the automotive sector. “The unique silhouette, clean but extremely distinguished, defines the base of our design language. Our visionary design approach allows us to transfer our DNA to other products: this was achieved through strong teamwork, sharing our style and the advantage of being two brands inspired by the same values and a commitment of being ‘fun to drive’. Andrea Ferraresi, director of Ducati Centro Stile, added: “The Ducati Diavel inspired by the Lamborghini Sián celebrates our shared values: we are both Italian, we are inherently sporty and our design always distinguishes our creations. “The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini has been created by using the same design language that distinguishes the Sián FKP 37.” The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini wears the number 63, a nod to the supercar maker’s founding year of 1963. Just 630 examples of this motorcycle will be

Harley-Davidson Outerlimit Is a Mini Lamborghini Aventador

by Daniel Patrascu from So, you own a Lamborghini Aventador, and that in itself is reason enough to be proud. But often times supercar owners find themselves in need of some other motorized sidekick contraption for their cars. So did a German Aventador owner, who must have thought there’s something missing from his garage, something that should not only keep the car company, but also match it in design. So he turned to custom German bike builder Thunderbike for help. The German shop started out in the 1980s as a repair place for Japanese motorcycles, but a few decades later found themselves to be quite good at either customizing Harleys, or building their own custom frames with Harley engineering inside. The Black Star 110 and the RS Lambo are perfect examples of their prowess in both fields. For the Aventador owner we mentioned above, they came up with a design called Outerlimit. Finished in 2016, it was specced as “super sporty appearance, neat pressure in the engine, big wheels and powerful brakes.” The custom frame of the bike was gifted with a Harley-Davidson twin cam 120R engine linked to a 6-speed manual transmission, which gives the bike a power output of 140 ps and 190 Nm of torque. Not quite Aventador levels, but for a motorcycle it’s not half bad. The performance of the bike was not necessarily the main goal of the build, but the appearance of it was. As per customer specification, the Outerlimit had to exactly match the colors of the supercar, and that task seems to have been met nicely: both the design and the paint job that cover the various portions of the motorcycles body replicate the black and white panels seen on the Aventador body and roof. We’re not being told how much
