The Diavel 1260 is basically a power cruiser that has been given a very sporty design to appeal to a new set of customers that prefer sports bike level performance from a cruiser motorcycle. It rides on a super-wide 240 mm wide tyre at the rear that gives the Diavel a very distinctive appeal.
At the heart of the new Diavel 1260 motorcycle sits a 1262 cc Testastretta DVT engine, which is now BS 6-compliant. This engine has been rated to pump out 162 bhp at 9,500 rpm and 129 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm.
The new Diavel 1260 gets a Cruise Control system along with three customisable riding modes. That said, its electronics kit also includes other features such as ABS Cornering EVO, DTC EVO, DWC EVO, DPL EVO, DQS and various Riding Modes.
