Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Ducati has put the torquey engine from the Diavel into an adventure chassis, and this is the result. Ducati says this makes more torque below 4,000 rpm than any other bike in its class, which is where you want it in the real world. For suspension, there are 48 mm fully adjustable USD forks in front and a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock in back, with remote spring preload adjustment. Off-road usage is limited by the bike's 17-inch wheel sizes. Other countries can order different versions of this bike, aimed at more sporting use, but Canada only gets the Touring option, which costs another $1,500.
