Just when you thought you've seen everything, here's a machine that you can't fail to say 'wow' at - the new Ducati Diavel. With the likes of Porsche making school run 4x4s and Aston Martin knocking out dodgy looking commuters, automotive off-piste adventures are all the rage these days.
Making sure the new engine - and the bike that was to be built around it - stayed true to the Harley-Davidson look, sound and feel were crucial to the development process. With their own engineering department busy with new projects, Harley commissioned Porsche Engineering Services to further develop the engine for street applications, while Harley themselves worked on the frame and styling. The size (1130cc, or 69 Ci) and dimensions (60 degree, instead of the usual 45 degree v-twin) of the new engine made it unsuitable for any existing H-D frame, so a new one was built from the ground up. The 'clean sheet' design goes some way to explaining
Despite its appearance, the thing is like driving half a Porsche the good half makes the right sounds, handles great, flattens bumps, goes really fast by automobile standards (not so much by bike ones anymore). And now that you've got ABS and the world's first motorcycle air-bag (on our top-line 27,999 Gold Wing Airbag), you too have more leeway to ride like an ass. The SUVs respect that. Still no cupholders.
Every Christmas one of my friends throws a little holiday get together. Robert collects old motorcycles, Porsche's and shotguns with equal Enthusiasm, and those interests are reflected in his guest list, which tends to be a little eclectic, so you never know who you're going to meet there.
Meanwhile, Ferdinand Porsche, working for the Lohner Co., had developed his Mixte drive for autos in 1900. Each drive wheel had an electric motor built into its hub, while the vehicle's engine drove a dynamo that charged a battery set. (Does this sound familiar ) To drive away, the operator sent battery power to the electric wheel motors, and the machine smoothly accelerated.
Ducati is justly proud that what you see is what you get in terms of materials, and there are almost no plastic parts. Or the LED running lights set horizontally across the single Porsche-esque headlamp, matched by the incredibly bright LED turn signals and tail-lights that are practically invisible when not illuminated. Or the so-distinctive single-sided aluminum license-plate mount with integrated LED that doubles as a rear fender, while matching the cast aluminum single-sided swingarm it's mounted to. Or the trademark trellis frame, the cast aluminium clutch and brake fluid reservoirs, the keyless Harley-type security system - the list goes on and on.
