Ask and you shall receive, as they say, for here is the new 2019 Diavel 1260. Although Ducati says this next-gen Diavel stays faithful to the original sport-naked spirit of that first machine, it puts a decidedly more contemporary slant on it. For one there's a major makeover in the engine room, with the 2019 Diavel 1260 now powered by a Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) 1262 engine, which claims an output of 159 hp at 9,500 rpm and 95 ft-lb. of torque at 7,500 rpm, compared to 152 hp and 91 ft-lb on the original 1198cc mill. Ducati also says the new motor offers a broader powerband thanks to the DVT, with more stump-pulling torque down low and well through the midrange, but still retaining that all-important top-end oomph. What's more, the motor is also a stressed member of the chassis.
