The Diavel not only defies your expectations, but your immediate impressions as well. It's long, but agile. Huge, but light. Comfortable, but very fast. High-tech and complex, but very easy to use. Center-dense styling makes the bike look larger than it is. The 30.3-inch seat height is the lowest in Ducati's lineup. Mid-mount footpegs are comfortable and very non-cruiserlike, and the slight forward reach to the wide, tapered handlebar makes the Diavel feel like a naked bike. With the bars located 1 inch closer and 1 inch higher than the current Monster, it feels unexpectedly compact.
