Special editions are meant to be special, and their importance increases when they signify a collaboration between two iconic brands. By iconic, we mean Lamborghini and Ducati, who have come together to make a bike, that carries the name of both the brands- the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini. Well, that’s surely a long name and we promise, before you pronounce the entire name, the bike will reach from 0 to 100kmph. What’s more interesting, is that if you break the number “1260” in half, you get 630, which is the number of these limited edition units, to be manufactured.
But there is another number as well, the bike gets a number “63” decal, that denotes the founding year of Automobili Lamborghini, and also marks the contribution of the carmaker, to this bike. Continuing with our number game, the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is inspired by the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 hybrid supercar, and the number “37”, over here, signifies the number of those limited edition supercar units manufactured by Lamborghini.
If that’s too much of a number game for you, let’s talk about the exteriors of the bike. And let me say that long name once again, the special edition Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, which is indeed inspired by the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 hybrid supercar, gets the same Verde Gea paint scheme with Electrum Gold elements on both the alloy wheels, the frame, and also the seat. But being an iconic brand, Ducati knows how to use an attractive exterior design, without compromising on practicality. This limited-edition bike extensively uses carbon fibre in as many places as possible, like the radiator, exhaust, tank, mudguards, and air intakes. This, along with the light forged steel alloy wheels, helps in keeping the dry weight down to 220kg.
Apart from these cosmetic changes, everything else is just the same as the standard Ducati Diavel 1260. Moreover, the special edition bike also gets the same 1,262 cc engine that is capable of producing a maximum power output of 160bhp at 9,500 rpm and 129Nm of peak torque output at 7,500 rpm. Apart from this, to improve the riding experience, Ducati has also added a host of safety features like the Bosch 6-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU), cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, power launch and cruise control.
