Ducati and fashion brand Diesel have teamed up on a limited edition Ducati Diavel Diesel, promising 666 units for production. The machine was built from a collaboration between Diesel Creative Director Andrea Rosso and the Ducati Design Center.
“The collaboration with Diesel enabled us to explore original stylistic and technical aspects whilst staying within the Ducati brand and fully respecting its values,” said Ducati Motor Holding CEO Claudio Domenicali in a company press release. “In this case we worked with Diesel on an already uniquely original bike like the Diavel and the result was surprising to put it mildly. The details characterizing the Diavel Diesel cannot fail to captivate connoisseurs of special bikes but also people from different walks of life, such as fashion. It’s always stimulating for us to move outside the world of motorcycling and widen our brand’s areas of interest.”
“It’s an important bike that reflects the rock side of Diesel’s DNA,” added Andrea Rosso in the same release. “The wording ‘Never look back’ engraved with the two logos captures the essence of this collaboration: a timeless bike that catches the eye with so many unmistakable details, such as the brushed stainless steel with visible welding and rivets. Ducati, Diavel and Diesel, three words, six letters each, forming 666, the limited number of examples of this new collaboration.”
Diesel has also created casual collection of apparel dedicated to the Bologna brand. As of today, this includes a pair of jeans, a leather jacket and two T-shirts.
