For the latest in its XDiavel line, Ducati has handed creative control to Fred Krugger, one of the motorbiking world’s best known customizers. The resulting bike is named the Ducati ‘Thiverval’ after a small racetrack on the outskirts of Paris, and was first shown to the world at the recent 2017 Bikers’ Classics Lifestyle Village. Krugger’s twist on the bike features a full exposed engine and hidden trellis frame to simplify the bike’s lines, while the XDiavel’s superstructures have been completely rebuilt from the original. The customizer’s aim was to create a power cruiser that would be imaginative while also keeping its ties to the XDaviel and Ducati’s DNA. This is the third time that Ducati has produced a concept bike based on the XDiavel, with Roland Sands putting his spin on the bike and the DraXter by Ducati’s design team.

Ducati has recently been put up for sale by Audi, with the German automobile company apparently seeking $1 billion USD for the luxury Italian motorcycle brand.
