The birth of a unique project: Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, inspired by the Sián FKP 37

Appealing to both motorcyclists and collectors from all over the world, two prestigious brands Automobili Lamborghini and Ducati announce the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini. The motorcycle is made in a limited and numbered edition of 630 units.

Both brands represent Italian excellence, sharing values such as sportiness, attention to design and meticulous devotion to detail. From this common ground, the inspiration of the Ducati designers came from the most interesting models of the company: the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.

Based on the Diavel 1260 S, the concept of the Diavel Lamborghini transfers the core concepts of the Sián FKP 37 to the motorcycle world, redesigning the components that most characterize the Diavel. The new, lightweight forged wheels explicitly recall 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. Finally, the typical Ducati red is referenced by the colouring of the Brembo brake calipers.

Each 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 car. 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. 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.”

Mitja Borkert, Head of Design of Automobili Lamborghini

“The Ducati Diavel inspired by the Lamborghini Sián celebrates our shared values: we are both Italian, we are inherently sporty and our design always distinguishes our creations. The Diavel 1260 Lamborghini has been created by using the same design language that distinguishes the Sián FKP 37.”

Andrea Ferraresi, Director of Ducati Centro Stile

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 characterized by the Verde (Green) Gea colour, while the frame, undertray and forged rims are embellished with the Oro (Gold) Electrum colour. The important Lamborghini design elements of the hexagon and ‘Y’ motif are evident: this special version of the Diavel pays homage to the former in the shape of the exhaust and the latter in the seat’s aesthetic details.

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 produced by Ducati.
