Lamborghini and Ducati have jointly announced the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, a limited, numbered edition motorcycle that draws inspiration from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.

Limited to just 630 units, the special edition is based on the Diavel 1260 S, but with its main components redesigned. 

The new, lightweight forged wheels mimic those of the car, as do the air intakes and radiator covers made of carbon fibre that suggest superimposed floating elements on the main structure of the bike. The important Lamborghini design element of the hexagon is used in the shape of the exhaust.

Every detail of the bike, redesigned by the Centro Stile Ducati for this specific project, is made of a light and precious material such as carbon fibre, also inspired by the Sián FKP 37. In addition to the radiator covers and air intakes, the silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame are also made of carbon.

“We are convinced that our design is strong and one of the most recognizable in the automotive sector,” says Mitja Borkert, Head of Design of Automobili Lamborghini. “The unique silhouette, clean but extremely distinguished, defines the base of our design language. Our visionary design approach allows us to transfer our DNA to other products: this was achieved through strong teamwork, sharing our style and the advantage of being two brands inspired by the same values and a commitment to ‘fun to drive’.

The livery of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is the result of the collaboration between the Centro Stile Ducati and Centro Stile Lamborghini. The paints applied to the bike are the same as those used for the Sián FKP 37, with the bodywork characterised by the Verde (Green) Gea colour, while the frame, undertray and forged rims are embellished with the Oro (Gold) Electrum colour.

The livery of this Diavel also sports a ‘63’: an important number for the Sant’Agata Bolognese company that was founded in 1963, and the number that multiplied by ten arrives at the 630 numbered units to be produce by Ducati.
