Lamborghini and Ducati have teamed up to create the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, a motorcycle that celebrates the cooperation between the two organisations and appeals to both motorcyclists and collectors from all over the world.

Based on the Diavel 1260 S, the concept of the Diavel Lamborghini transfers the core concepts of the Sián FKP 37 to the motorcycle world, redesigning the components that most characterize the Diavel. The new, lightweight forged wheels pay homage those of the car, as do the air intakes and radiator covers, which are made of carbon fibre.

 

Each detail of the bike, redesigned by the Centro Stile Ducati for this specific project, is made of a light and precious material such as carbon fibre, also inspired by the car. In addition to the radiator covers and air intakes, the silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame are also made of carbon.

The paints applied to the bike are the same as those used for the Sián FKP 37, with the bodywork characterized by the Verde (Green) Gea colour, while the frame, undertray and forged rims are embellished with the Oro (Gold) Electrum colour.

“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,” said Andrea Ferraresi, Director of Ducati Centro Stile.

“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 to ‘fun to drive,” said Mitja Borkert, Head of Design of Automobili Lamborghini.
