2020 Ducati XDiavel S

Ducati opted to leave well enough alone with the 2020 XDiavel S. The Italian performance cruiser retains the same liquid-cooled, 1,262cc Testastretta V-twin engine from the previous year, a superbike-derived, Desmodromic Variable Timing system-enhanced mill that owners have come to love for its punchy kick and seemingly endless power. Complemented by a fully adjustable, Diamond Like Coating-treated fork, a spring-preload- and rebound-damping-adjustable shock, antilock-equipped Brembo braking components, and sticky Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires, the XDiavel S has proven an incredibly responsive and nimble on-road performer. “The XDiavel handles surprisingly lightly for a long, long motorcycle with a big, fat 240mm-wide rear tire,” testers reported after sampling the original model in 2016. That’s not the type of comment you often hear about a machine with a sub-30-inch seat height, forward-mount controls, and a relaxed riding position.
