So I'm at my "local" dealership this morning, same place I bought my bike new in 2005, buying oil and fuel filters and the sales guy tells me they're coming out with a touring version of.........................................the Diavel. :confused:

I look at the models on his floor, and he has like 4 new Diavels sitting there, 2 AMGs. (which I like ) And now, they're bringing out a *touring* version of a slow selling, expensive muscle bike as opposed to a real ST? :think:

Ducati's effed. :)

My local dealer hasn't had a problem moving their stock of base or carbon Diavels, but the 'chromo' model is just sitting there, next to one of those 27k AMG styling exercises. Methinks Diavel purchasers aren't quite the lifestyle crowd Ducati had hoped. They seem to go for real features over glitz and the illusion of exclusivity, just like most Ducati owners have done, most of the time.

It's possible that a 'touring' Diavel might have features worth considering, but I doubt it. I don't think the look and feel that appeals to potential Diavel owners also will appeal to those who want to tour. It's liable to sit on showrooms, much as the GT1000 Touring setup did.
