Ducati's XDiavel and Multistrada Enduro to hit roads by end-2016

Ducati India is looking at introducing its XDiavel and the Multistrada Enduro models before the end of the year.

The Ducati XDiavel, which debuted at the EICMA show 2015 in Milan, has a greater appeal with a belt drive and other enhancements. The cruiser is powered by a 1262cc Testastretta 90° V-twin with variable valve timing and desmodromic valves. Peak power is 156PS but the 128.9Nm of peak torque at just 5,000rpm is really what the bike is about.

To incorporate the belt drive, Ducati has altered the chassis slightly and changed the swing arm a bit.

The Multistrada Enduro, which also debuted at the EICMA show in Milan, is powered by a  160PS 90° V-twin. Ducati has added spoke wheels, a 19-inch front, an extended beak and added anodised aluminium side panels.
