Just came back from the Expo, expressly to check out the Diavel. I have to say (maybe my expectations were too high), but I was slightly underwhelmed. Slightly only, though. Ducati didn't really go out of their way to showcase it, either. (unlike the VMax, which could be seen from miles around!) I nearly missed it, and it didn't stop any of the 'normal' punters in their tracks. No crowds around it or anything. Very nice looking bike and looks like it would kick a$$ against almost anything out there! The riding position, stance, geometry, proportions, etc place this one squarely against the V-Max and (possibly the B-King). Looked like a Monster on Steroids. Not really a 'cruiser' like I thought it would be. The handlebars s*cked, but then again, I'm sure they could be swapped out. I have to go back and check it out a second time, me thinks.
