I could never sell my "V".

That being said,
The Ducati Diavel is the first bike I have seen that I would allow to share garage space with my precious Versys.

I've been thinking about it. Maybe sharing space for both is a good answer. Definitely have to take a test ride in the spring.

Looks cool must admit. Not as cool as a Versys or even the Duc multistrada or motard.

162 HP engine, yikes. You could probably buy a V every other year just for the cost of insurance!

Nope, over priced, and require more maintenance.

Time alone with ones thoughts, is quality time.

They say there is a lack of jobs. Seems here to be more a lack of people willing to work hard, and take pride in the work they do.

Not interested in a Diavel. The Duc I have is more fun. I use the Versys for around town, mostly.

Hell no!

The Diavel looks idiotic. It's a cruiser, for god's sake! In my world, saying you're a cruiser person is an insult.

And Ducatis simply are not as reliable as Japanese bikes. I would never travel far from home on a Ducati.

It's not a cruiser. Cruisers have forward controls. The Diavel has the footpegs in about the same position as a Versys. I call it a Standard, and that's something we have too few of.

Today's Ducatis aren't unreliable. However, they don't suffer fools gladly. Someone with no mechanical sensitivity will find a way to break one, and probably shouldn't own one. They're not for everybody.

Not saying I disagree, but a little twist of the throttle on that bad boy and you might be far, far from home before you know it.

"will anyone sell their v or ninja for the ducatti devil?"- This is like saying "will anyone sell their Subaru outback for a porsche 911."
Anyway, for that ugly POS Diavel-NO.
For the Multistrada...In a Nano second.
