Ducati’s unique cooperation with Mercedes AMG was first announced at the 2010 Los Angeles Motor Show with a sponsorship agreement for the Ducati MotoGP Team. The association soon developed and the Diavel AMG Special Edition now represents the first “co-inspired” model, combining distinctive styling features from both famous brands.

Based upon the Diavel Carbon, the Diavel AMG Special Edition features AMG’s signature 5-spoke wheel styling, carbon fibre lateral radiator grills with aluminium trim, AMG-style sport exhaust system with engraved end-caps and AMG-style horizontally ribbed seat upholstered in Alcantara. Every engine has its Desmodromic cam-timing set by hand and authenticated with the name of the engine technician engraved on the left-side engine casing. Further underlining the model’s exclusivity, each motorcycle will have a numbered plaque on the fuel tank.

The Ducati Diavel has been a major first-year success for the Italian motorcycle manufacturer and has set a new industry standard for the segment. The company’s Testastretta 11° engine combined with a specially engineered 240 section rear tyre delivers performance balanced with user-friendly comfort and safety-enhancing electronics.

The Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition and exclusively designed leather jacket and helmet apparel will be available in early 2012, with orders opening to coincide with the first public showing at the Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany.
