Lamborghini and Ducati face an uncertain future under the VW Group’s umbrella, but the brands have teamed up to create a special motorcycle.
Dubbed the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, the model is being billed as a “unique project born from the collaboration between two prestigious brands that have their roots in the Motor Valley.”
That isn’t much to go on, but the teaser image shows the Diavel will have a unique fuel tank with a carbon fiber insert and a prominent Lamborghini badge. We can also see a greenish brown body and a matte black fuel cap.

Regular Diavel 1260
Little else is known about the bike at this point, but it will be introduced tomorrow, November 25th, at 1:00 p.m. EST.
Lamborghini and Ducati are staying tight-lipped, but the bike is based on the Diavel 1260 which features a 1.3-liter engine that produces 157 hp (117 kW / 159 PS) and 95 lb-ft (129 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a six-speed gearbox, a Brembo braking system and a stainless dual exhaust system. Other highlights should include LED lighting units, a 3.5-inch digital instrument cluster and 17-inch wheels.
While nothing is official, the model could be based on the Diavel 1260 S. It’s sportier than the standard model as it features a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, beefier brakes and a so-called “Quick Shift” system. The S variant also has a special seat, unique wheels, a daytime running light and a multimedia system which connects your smartphone to the bike.
A number of questions remain, but we’ll find out full details tomorrow.
