Two iconic Italian brands put their minds together to create the breathtaking Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini motorbike.
At Alpha Men Asia, we love collaborations. They affirm the stance of ‘two minds are better than one’, and when that mantra is adopted by the most creative brands, only great things result. The new Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini motorbike is just such a prize, and while you may never buy one, or even dare to ride it if given the chance, we’re sure that you too will appreciate it as a work of art on two wheels.
Born from a partnership between two of Italy’s leading performance brands, and limited, as you might imagine, to just 630 units, the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini motorbike epitomises meticulous attention to detail and a passion for always pushing the envelope just a little farther. Taking inspiration from one of Lamborghini’s most fascinating models, the Sián FKP 37 (and not the first collaboration this supercar has inspired), this two-wheel speed demon is based on the Diavel 1260 S bike, with many of the model’s iconic elements redesigned by Centro Stile Ducati for the new project.
The bike’s new, lightweight forged wheels explicitly recall those of the Lamborghini Sián, 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. In addition, the silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover, and headlight frame are also made of carbon.
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 Sián FKP 37, with the bodywork characterized by the Verde (Green) Gea colour, while the frame, undertray, and forged rims are embellished with the Oro (Gold) Electrum colour. The important Lamborghini design elements of the hexagon and ‘Y’ motif are evident in the shape of the exhaust and 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 produce by Ducati. Clever, huh?
