2011 Ducati Diavel – Click above for high-res image gallery

A scant few photos and a quick hit of information about the all-new Ducati Diavel have slipped out ahead of the bike's unveil at EICMA. According to the crew at Hell for Leather, the sculpture you see above packs a full 162 horsepower, 94 pound-feet of torque and tips the scales at a feathery 456 pounds. And that's just the base version. Apparently the Italian moto-maker is also offering a Diavel Carbon version that makes use of plenty of carbon fiber to shed an additional seven pounds from the recipe.

Aside from the pants-soiling power, the Diavel also comes loaded with more technology than ought to be possible. There's a ride-by-wire throttle system, traction control, anti-lock brakes, a keyless ignition and a tank-mounted, light-sensing TFT display packed into the beast you see above. Sounds fun, but we can hardly look at the bike without getting our eyeballs stuck on that epic 240 millimeter-wide tire. Hey, all that power has to get to the pavement somehow.

If you want one, and let's face it, you probably do, you'll have to shell out around $16,995 for the base model and $19,995 for the Carbon iteration.

      Looks like it has been designed - oh let's be honest - MARKETED specifically for the American market. That is not a compliment.

      What a shameful waste of resources to have the talented Ducati engineers working on this poser-mobile. I guess lap times will have to stay where they are for another year thanks to this pile of lame.

      This is one ugly bike.

      nice looking exhaust header, but the mufler looks to big

      Now that could have been something HD did to the VRod motor to give them a street bike, not a performance drag bike (VRods may move, but they do not corner).

      I like it.

      Looks like a Speed Triple competitor to me. I love the look. But at that price... ouch.

      Put this, and a Marussia B2 in my garage, and what you would have is quite simply the most bad ass Millionaire garage ever.

      Merry Christmas to me...! :D

      I'm glad they're making something a bit different, but this thing looks so chunky. I wish it was a bit more angular and not so round.

      Ummm, no.

      What was Ducati thinking when they made this a monoposto? Surely they realize a majority of their target demographic for this bike only rides to "pick up chicks," but without a second seat, how are said buyers going to get their conquests back to their Heineken and Starbucks-littered bachelor pads?

      Wow, at over $425 per pound it is hard to pay the extra price for the Carbon Fiber version!
