Gearheads worldwide know of the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy since it’s home to several distinguished motorcycle and auto manufacturers, earning the reputation as the Motor Valley. We can add another iconic motorcycle to that list with the unveiling of the limited-edition 2021 Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, a collaborative effort between Ducati and Lamborghini.
This collaboration between the two Italian motorsports icons is the first of its kind and the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini will be limited to 630 individually numbered units.
Ducati designers drew inspiration from the ultra-exclusive Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37, arguably Lamborghini’s most ambitious hybrid supercar to date, limited to 63 units and completely personalized per the owner’s specifications. Touting a claimed 819 horsepower out of its internal combustion engine and electric motor, the Siàn FKP 37 is one of the most technologically advanced four-wheeled vehicles available today.
Using that impressive machine as a jumping-off point, Ducati’s Bologna-based design team went to work in borrowing several visual elements from the Siàn FKP 37, most notably its Gea Green color that is embellished by Electrum Gold forged wheels and other details. Other design elements borrowed from the car world are the Ducati Red Brembo M50 calipers.
All of the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborgini’s bodywork is made out of carbon fiber, and new lightweight forged aluminum rims closely resemble what’s found on the Siàn FKP 37. The Diavel has adopted other signature Lamborghini design cues with the “Y” motif proudly featured on the seat and hexagonal exhaust tips, which have been a staple characteristic since Lamborghini’s founding in 1963.
Mechanically, this is the same Ducati Diavel 1260 power cruiser that we already know and enjoy, featuring the powerful 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine, fully adjustable Öhlins suspension and top-shelf electronics.
Those interested in owning the 2021 Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini will have to act fast, as only 630 units will be produced, and pricing starts at $31,995. For more information, visit Ducati.
