Jay Leno goes like hell on the 2016 Ducati XDiavel S
As Leno quickly realizes during his ride, the XDiavel S straddles the line between a sportbike and a traditional cruiser. The long, low setup makes for an easy ride when you want it. Jay also notes the bike is quite nimble and handles well when you push, too. The 1,262-cc V-twin with 156 horsepower offers plenty of power, but we agree with the comedian that the exhaust note could be a little meaner. Currently, the sound is a little too subdued for the cycle's aggressive look.
Jay starts out somewhat apprehensive about the bike because he doesn't tend to like cycles with a foot-forward riding position, but he steps away far more convinced about the XDiavel's capabilities. After you take a ride with Leno, check out the episode of Translogic where host Jonathon Buckley also gives it a shot.
