Ducati has introduced a special edition of the XDiavel in the international market. The Nera Edition of the hyper cruiser is essentially based on the standard XDiavel but with a serious cosmetic makeover.
Ducati has revealed the Nera Edition of the XDiavel, which is built in a partnership with Poltrona Frau – an Italian furniture company. The XDiavel Nera is essentially a special edition motorcycle, and its production will be limited to only 500 units.
The Nera Edition is based on the standard motorcycle, which means that the XDiavel Nera gets the same 1,262cc 90-degree V-twin engine. The power figures are the same as well – 158bhp at 9,500rpm and 127Nm at 5,000rpm. The suspension components and braking hardware have been carried over as well.
The changes essentially include a new livery, which consists of a black on black theme. The Brembo brake callipers are highlighted in red. The red accents continue on the engine cover as well. But the key highlight of the XDiavel Nera is the seat, which has been handcrafted and double stitched by Poltrona Frau.
Poltrona Frau has also worked on the interior trims of exotic cars such as Ferraris and Maseratis. The firm is renowned for high-end leather armchairs and other fashion accessories as well. The seat can be optioned with a backrest too, and the choice of colours include classic Poltrona Frau Siam Red, Steel Blue, Concrete Gray, India Brown, and Selva Green. The key fob of these 500 motorcycles will use the same leather.
