A unique project between two iconic Italian manufacturers, Ducati and Lamborghini, births the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, inspired by the Sian FKP 37.

26 Nov 2020 | International News : Italy

Automobili Lamborghini and Ducati announce the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, born from the collaboration between two prestigious brands. The motorcycle is made in a limited and numbered edition of 630 units, celebrating the cooperation between the two organisations and appealing to both motorcyclists and collectors from all over the world.

Ducati and Lamborghini both represent Italian excellence, sharing values such as sportiness, attention to design and a meticulous devotion to detail. From this common ground, the Ducati designers' inspiration for the special project came from one of Lamborghini's most fascinating models, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37.

The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is painted in the same stunning Verde Gea and Oro Electrum colours as the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
Based on the Diavel 1260 S, the concept of the Diavel Lamborghini transfers the core concepts of the Sian FKP 37 to the motorcycle world, redesigning the components that most characterise the Diavel.

The new, lightweight forged wheels explicitly recall those of the car, as do the air intakes and radiator covers made of carbon fibre that suggest superimposed floating elements on the main structure of the bike. Finally, the typical Ducati red is referenced by the colouring of the Brembo brake calipers.

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 fibre.

The design concept of the Sian FKP 37 was transferred onto the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, adapted to fit the bike's character
The livery of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the result of the collaboration between the Centro Stile Ducati and Centro Stile Lamborghini. The paints applied to the bike are the same as those used for the Sian FKP 37, with the bodywork characterised by the Verde Gea colour, while the frame, undertray and forged rims are embellished with the Oro Electrum colour.

The important Lamborghini design elements of the hexagon and 'Y' motif are evident, with this special version of the Diavel paying homage to the former in the shape of the exhaust and the latter in the seat's aesthetic details.

The livery of this Diavel also sports a '63', an important number for the Sant'Agata Bolognese company that was founded in 1963, and the number that multiplied by ten arrives at the 630 numbered units to be produced by Ducati.
