Two new variants – Dark and Black Star
2021 Ducati XDiavel Variants
For 2021, Ducati’s XDiavel is available in a total of three variants – S, Dark and Black Star. The S nearly identical to the older bike in terms of its styling with silver details on the engine casing and wheels.
The new Dark variant features a matte black colour scheme that can be found not only on the body work, but other components as well. For instance, this variant doesn’t have the silver highlight seen on the S variants and other components that would be silver are also blacked-out on this variant.
Like the Dark, the new Black Star variant is quite stealthy as well. However, instead of a complete matte black paint scheme, it features areas finished in grey with a contrasting red stripe. The Black Star variant also features a suede seat cover with red stitching.
