Ducati Diavel for Bentley: Exclusivity, Performance and Craftsmanship

A numbered and limited edition of 500 units, inspired by the Bentley Batur and built on the technical base of the Diavel V4.

Ducati and Bentley are proud to jointly announce a new, limited-edition motorcycle that celebrates the best of both iconic brands: the Ducati Diavel for Bentley. Born from the collaboration between the two manufacturers, the project links Ducati and Bentley with a vision of performance, craftsmanship and exclusivity. The result is a striking synthesis of technology, style and performance capable of making enthusiasts dream. The bike was revealed to the public with a design event during Art Basel week in Miami Beach, Florida.

On the sophisticated technical base of the high-performance and comfortable Diavel V4, Ducati has integrated many style-characterizing elements of the Bentley Batur — a limited-series model handcrafted by Bentley — to create a motorcycle unique in terms of elegance and design. The Diavel for Bentley will be created in a numbered series limited to 500 plus 50 units, the latter reserved for Bentley customers.

The Centro Stile Ducati, in collaboration with Bentley designers, created a new design for this special motorcycle, drawing inspiration from the Batur, from which it takes the mainly horizontal lines of the side view. The Scarab Green color, sophisticated and refined and rich in metallic shades, comes from the Bentley Mulliner palette and is used throughout the bodywork.

The decisive and aggressive lines of the Diavel V4 have also been profoundly revised through the technical components: Many of the characteristic features of the Batur are taken up in different parts of the bike. The forged rims, designed and created for this motorcycle, 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, one of the most recognizable elements of the Batur. The triangular rear extractors refer to the corresponding elements of the car. The front mudguard, the fairing and the upper view of the tank recall the ribs on the front bonnet, while the single-seater tail, which can be replaced with a passenger seat, takes many styling cues from the double-layer extractor on the back of the car.

Many of the bodywork components are made of high-quality carbon fiber (fenders, headlamp cover, engine, exhaust and radiator covers, radiator shrouds, side panels, tail piece).

The rider’s seat, in black Alcantara, inspired by the interior of the car, is achieved with precision workmanship that reveals the underlying red fabric with the same texture of that of the Batur seats and with the Bentley logo embroidered on the rear pad. The dual outlet exhaust, with its cover, has been redesigned to harmonize with the refined lines of the bike.

Batur is Bentley’s most powerful production car ever, with a 730-horsepower twin-turbo W12 engine, coach-built in just 18 units. More than that, the Batur combines benchmark Bentley craftsmanship with sculptured, muscular bodywork that defines a new design DNA for Bentley, which previews a new design direction for the brand. The visual message communicates great power and elegance without ostentation or excess. The 18 units of the Batur are individually hand-crafted by Mulliner, the oldest coachbuilder in the world and Bentley’s in-house bespoke division.

In addition to the 500 Diavel for Bentley models, Ducati also offers a series of just 50 models, called Diavel for Bentley Mulliner. The 50 Diavel for Bentley Mulliners will be available exclusively to Bentley customers, who through direct collaboration with the designers of the Centro Stile Ducati, will be able to configure their Diavels for Bentley Mulliner with different colors for the saddle, front brake calipers, carbon fiber parts and rims. They will also be able to choose the same color as their cars for the bodywork parts or one of those from the exclusive palette selected by the designers of the Crewe company.

The Diavel for Bentley, like all collectible Ducatis, is 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 fiber 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 the key-on, which makes the Diavel for Bentley even more unmistakable. Finally, each Diavel for Bentley will be delivered in an exclusive, personalized, wooden case.

The collaboration between the two manufacturers has also led to the creation of a Capsule Collection, reserved for Diavel for Bentley owners, which allows customers to complete their look with a helmet and a technical jacket (available in both men’s and women’s versions) in a limited edition, characterized by a color scheme that reflects that of the motorcycle.

The Diavel for Bentley adopts the 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine, a central element of its design and at the same time a highly refined technical choice. Powerful (168-horsepower), rich in torque but also extremely light and compact, it is at the same time fluid, regular and usable right from the lowest revs. The Twin Pulse combustion order, together with the dedicated exhaust system, unmistakably characterizes the timbre of the exhaust.

The launch video of the new Ducati Diavel for Bentley is available on the Ducati YouTube channel. Further images of this special and exclusive motorbike can be downloaded on Ducati Media House.
