Nicky Hayden’s Ducati Diavel Concept

Are you one of the loyal Ducatisti who is not so crazy about the new Ducati Diavel? Don’t worry, because Nicky Hayden feels your pain, and went as far as to create his own concept bike for Ducati’s newly released performance cruiser. Based off the 800cc V4 motor of the Ducati Desmosedici GP10, Hayden’s low-riding two-wheeled vision uses an all carbon frame, Öhlins suspension, and Brembo monoblocs.

It also comes fitted stock with Bridgestone’s top-of-the-line performance tires, and has numerous carbon fiber bits and pieces, not to mention traction control, launch control, wheelie control, but no ABS. Available only in Rosso Corsa for now, we hear a one-off limited edition white paint scheme may also be available later next year. No word on price, but the above model comes slightly used.

  • If they can keep the price point at or around $15K, I might take one.. : )

    It was pretty amazing to watch that bike go flying! Shame Nicky couldn’t keep it on track, it was a pro start and Ducati looked set for a 1-2!

    Bad luck Nicky!

    Has anyone figured out exactly what was stuck to the hump on his leathers as he was kicking the gravel? I thought it might be a tear-away, but it’s hard to tell. I also noticed a little extra-spicy language when they cut to a close-up of Nicky after the replay of his wreck. They didn’t have a mic on him, but he mouthed what I’m sure a lot of people were thinking–it cracked up me and the wife pretty good.

  • I’d have to watch the video again to be sure, but it was either a tear away or the visor itself.

  • Like a conversation piece?
