Ducati will partner with luxury car maker Bentley to produce two limited edition models. Based on the Diavel V4 variant from the Italian motorcycle brand, the new bike was revealed with a ‘furiosalone’ event at Art Basel at Miami Beach in the US.
They will be known as the Diavel for Bentley and the Diavel for Bentley Mulliner, and will be limited to 500 and 50 examples respectively. The latter will be available exclusively for Bentley customers, with the bike drawing inspiration from the handcrafted Batur model.
The motorcycle Ducati has created is unique in terms of elegance and design, and features a Scarab Green colour lifted from the Bentley Mulliner palette. The decisive and aggressive lines of the Diavel V4 have also been profoundly revised with new components.
The forged rims, designed and created for just this motorbike, recall the shapes of those of the car and are painted in Dark Titanium Satin, leaving some machined surfaces visible. The side air intakes reflect the two-tone front grille of the car.
The triangular rear extractors refer to the corresponding elements of the Batur, while the front mudguard, fairing and the upper view of the tank recall the ribs on the front bonnet. The single-seater tail, takes cues from the double-layer extractor on the back of the car.
The rider’s seat, in black Alcantara, is inspired by the car’s interior and features underlying red fabric with the same texture found in the Batur, with the Bentley logo embroidered on the rear pad.
The 50 Diavel for Bentley Mulliner examples will additionally be customisable through Centro Stile Ducati, with different colours for the saddle, front brake callipers, carbon fibre parts and rims.
They will also be able to choose the same colour as their car for the bodywork parts. Regardless of the limited edition variant, each will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity, a passenger seat and a motorcycle cover.
The name of the model and the production number of the unit are engraved on a plate inserted in the carbon fibre cover of the vertical head, on the right side of the motorcycle.
Both the dashboard, equipped as standard with turn-by-turn navigator, and the LED matrix of the rear light cluster offer a special animation at key-on, which makes the Diavel for Bentley even more unmistakable.
Finally, each Diavel for Bentley will be delivered in an exclusive personalised wooden case. The collaboration has also seen the creation of a Capsule Collection, offering a jet helmet and a technical jacket (available for men and women).
