Ducati Diavel V4 makes UK debut this weekend in London

Ducati has presented the new Diavel V4 power cruiser in London for the first time this week, and it will be on display at the London Motorcycle Show.


Ducati is presenting several models from its 2023 range, including the new Diavel V4, at the London Motorcycle Show.

The 2023 London Motorcycle Show began today, but Ducati’s ‘London takeover’, as it is calling it, began yesterday at the Gherkin building, where it presented the new Ducati Diavel V4.

The new Diavel V4 further confirms Ducati’s commitment to this engine platform, after decades of making itself synonymous with the V-twin format. Although the engine used in the Diavel is not exactly the same as that used in the Panigale supersports bike, the Granturismo motor follows a similar derivation from Ducati’s Desmosedici MotoGP project and is set to produce almost 170 horsepower in Ducati’s power cruiser. 

Having unveiled it in London on 16 February, Ducati is also showcasing the bike at the London Motorcycle Show from today and throughout this weekend, along with a number of its other models. 

At the forefront of those is the Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally, the latest Multi’ variant for this year with a more off-road focus and a 30-litre fuel tank.

Additionally, the 2023 Ducati Panigale V4 R will be present, with its 998cc Stradale R engine which for this year’s edition is capable of producing over 240 horsepower. 

The Ducati Scrambler range will also be in London this weekend, as well as the Ducati Unica Project, which is essentially Ducati Centro Stile’s bespoke, ‘one-of-one’ custom project. For those interested in e-bikes, Ducati will also have their on- and off-road electric bicycles on display in London.

Vice President Global Sales Ducati Motor Holding, Francesco Milicia, said: "We are delighted to unveil the new Diavel V4 in an exclusive and fascinating location as The Gherkin. 

“London is a very design-conscious city and the Ducati Diavel with its sporty personality, exaggerated and elegant at the same time, is a unique style icon in its segment, perfect for this kind of context. This motorcycle is able to magnetise attention in any situation and has been enhanced by a series of details. The rear light cluster, for example, consists of a matrix of punctiform LEDs. A spectacular solution that we are sure will also be appreciated by enthusiasts at the London Motorcycle Show.”

The London Motorcycle Show is taking place this weekend at the ExCeL arena.
