Ducati Diavel on the production line - Click above to watch video after the jump

Ducati says it expects the upcoming Diavel to lead the company's sales in 2011, and with 162 horsepower propelling just 456 pounds, we imagine that the Italian bike maker won't have trouble finding homes for its latest creation. The Diavel, a performance cruiser, walks a fine line between face-ripping power and beautiful design. Now Ducati has given us all a glimpse into what it takes to put its new motorcycle on the road.

Using time-lapse video, we can follow the birth of a Ducati Diavel from a bare engine all the way to the menacing final product. Ducati says that it's cranking out around 40 Diavel units per day, though it hopes to increase production by around 50 percent as riding season kicks into gear. Hit the jump to see the full build process for yourself.

      good stuff, if you're ever traveling through italy, be sure to stop by their factory in bologna for a free tour, how many companies give you an opportunity to see the assembly of motorcycles in person?

      The finished product is stunning. Something different to say the least. Nonetheless I'm sure you could have one hell of a time at the track, then driver her home on the street comfortably.
