The 2023 Ducati Diavel V4 maintains its presence on the outside thanks to its chiseled fuel tank, large air intake, thin tail section, and wide tyres. The front has dynamic turn indicators on the handlebar, LED headlamps, and double-C-shaped daytime running lights. The motorcycle’s appearance is further enhanced by the new quad-tip design of the exhaust. Available in Exciting Black or Ducati Red exterior colours.
Ducati modified the chassis. The V4 model weighs 223kg, 13kg less than the Diavel 1260S because they switch from the steel trellis frame to the rear subframe. The cantilever-pattern shock and a 50mm inverted fork are fully adjustable.
