Ducati has unveiled its first creation in collaboration with Bentley in the form of the new Diavel V4 Limited Edition that takes inspiration from the Bentley Batur. Just 500 will be offered as a numbered limited edition, with an even more exclusive run of just 50 Bentley Mulliner editions to be sold to customers of Bentley’s bespoke division offering buyers the chance to configure different colors for the saddle, the brake calipers, and the carbon-fiber bodywork.
The Diavel for Bentley comes in a metallic Scarab Green paint job taken from the Mulliner colour palette. Like all collectible Ducatis, is delivered with a certificate of authenticity, a passenger seat and a motorcycle cover. Every panel on the bike is new, with Batur-derived elements included in the redesigned air intakes, which mimic the car’s two-tone grille, and the seat, which features a combination of black Alcantara over a red lower layer.
The bike also gets forged wheels to match those found on the Batur, while the designers at Ducati Centro Stile and the Bentley design team have worked together to bring the two and four wheels together as much as they can. The edition number is engraved on a plate inserted in the carbon fibre cover of the vertical cylinder head. Additionally, both the dashboard, equipped as standard with turn-by-turn navigation, and the LED matrix of the rear light cluster display a special Diavel by Bentley animation on start-up.
Power for the Diavel for Bentley comes from a 1,158 cc V-four Ducati Granturismo engine, producing 168 hp at 10,750 rpm with 126 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. In Malaysia, the 2024 Ducati Diavel V4 is priced at RM178,900 for the Ducati Red version while the Thrilling Black colour option costs RM181,900.
Both the standard Diavel for Bentley and the Mulliner version will come with a certificate of authenticity, the removable passenger seat, a cover, and an engraved plaque bearing the bike’s number in the limited-edition run. There’s also the option to buy matching clothing in the form of a “jet” helmet and a jacket in colors to complement the bike’s.
