The first Ducati motorcycle to be born from the link-up between the Italian bike firm and performance car manufacturer AMG – the Diavel AMG is now available in Malaysia.
A preview unit has been specially flown in and is now on display at the Ducati AMG Performance Centre in Bangsar, with the order books open for it.
The 2012 flagship model of the Diavel family will start at RM193,999 and is dressed in matte black carbon fibre bodywork with an AMG “Diamond White Bright” stripe and frame colour trim.
It includes AMG’s signature 5-spoke wheel styling, carbon fibre lateral radiator grills with aluminium trim, a new AMG-style sport exhaust system with engraved end-caps and AMG-style horizontally ribbed seat upholstery.
What’s more, the Desmodromic cam-timing system is set by hand and signed by the responsible engine technician, just as an AMG engine is built and signed by one man.
Ducati Malaysia aims to double its sales of the premium motorcycle range to over 500 units this year, its general manager C.W. Juan said.
“Last year, we sold over 200 units, with our Ducati Monster 795 being the most successful model”, he said after the media launch of the Ducati Diavel AMG.
