The Italians do have a knack of deigning cars & bikes which set them apart from competitors in the league. In the high-end racer bike category, one such Italian maestro is Ducati who has enjoyed a premium positioning for its rather abstract but innovative body designs. The new Diavel AMG special edition from the Italian bike maker may not be as flashy as its 1200S Pikes Peak Special edition cousin but packs in quiet the style quotient with some signature designs from the two master brands. The major unveiling of the bike will take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year, which shall have a plethora of the very bests in the automotive world.
The reason why this bike is going to be a hit is the expertise of two geniuses- Ducati & AMG- behind its design who have lent their styling and engineering skills to the creation of this 2-wheeler, both of whom are known for prowess in the racing circuits. Hence, both managed to work together lending some signature touches including the 5-spoke alloy wheels, carbon fiber radiator grills with touches of aluminum, a common AMG addition in the form of the sports style exhaust system and the ribbed seat upholstery. Probably, both these companies knew that anyone getting hold of these bikes would travel at breakneck speed most of the time and that's why they ensured some key elements to keep the excess heat out. The exhaust grills and also the fuel tank grilling bear testimony to that. Other than that, the frame is also a carbon fiber do, which means that the weight has been looked into and this ensures that the engine can zoom easier than you think.
To see this mean machine hitting the road, you have to wait till 2012 when all the limited editions of the bike will be on sale. That’s when we also get to know what the price tag on this bike is going to be.
