The Diavel made a splash when it landed back in 2010 for MY11, but the “1260” is a second-generation machine with a number of improvements over the originals. What hasn’t changed is the aggressive, all-up-front panache that makes it look like a sprinter crouched at the blocks with a flyline unlike anything else around.

It’s that long tank that does it; that and the abbreviated subframe section that peters out to nothing to leave pilot and pillion suspended over the aching void above the rear wheel.

A cut-down front fender helps keep unsprung weight down at the front axle while maintaining (barely) sufficient coverage to contain the spray, and out back, there’s a hugger-plateholder combo with a secondary hugger mounted forward of the rear wheel to complete the coverage. Beefy, inverted forks prop up the front end and add to the performance bent while the cyclops headlight-plus-DRL reinforces the naked DNA. We love what they’ve done with the turn signals; the winker duties are handles by a strip of LEDs set in the leading edge of the cheek-fairings/radiator shroud rather than going the standoff route that always looks like an afterthought to mine eyes.
