    Considering new bike, what category is XDiavel?

    Forum Sponsor
    Considering purchasing either a Diavel or an XDiavel in the next year or so, does anyone know what these bikes are categorized as? How are insurance on these bikes comparatively? Are there any differences between the X and non-x model?

    I've seen the XDiavel be considered more akin to the typical cruiser class (posture/form) than the original Diavel which is more like a VMax. They both have a gross amount of power. Definitely sit on both before choosing. Ride em if you can.
    But they won't be very cheap to insure I would assume; high end, imported euro, higher CC, and the XDiavel only came out a couple years ago I think?

    Checked them out and got quotes anywhere from $1300 to $1800 per year.
    The regular Diavel is on my short list for a new bike in a couple of years (Happy 50th to me!).
    The X-Diavel is a cool bike, but the foot forward thing still doesn't appeal to me too much. They have kits to bring them back, but they're stupid expensive.

    There you have it,

    if a 50 year old is getting those kinds of numbers, if you are young(20s) dont expect it to be cheap(to purchase or insure)

    That's with a clean record too... as for purchase, well, the xDiavel starts at around $20K. Regular Diavel a little less.
    The bike has a ton of power, so that's probably why the insurance rates are higher... and well, Ducati... replacement parts are higher cost too.

    Yikes, 1300-1800 for 50 year old clean record, does seem high. I am in my 20's, I will start considering secondary options until I get a quote next year.

    Look at used Diavels on Kijiji.
    They all have low mileage. What does that tell you?

    That could mean a lot actually. I've seen more Diavels on the road than 1199's or Multiatradas* but not combined.
