Ducati Diavel overview

The Ducati Diavel is in a very unique category that could be seen as the missing link between cruisers and naked bikes. Some might call it a sports cruiser, a hyper naked or even a muscle bike. All of these could be correct.

Still, there are very few motorcycles that we can genuinely compare to the Ducati Diavel. Will we ever see motorcycles from other manufacturers that are really comparable to this one? We’ll have to wait and see…

Ducati XDiavel

AppearancePerformance
95% match96% match

The Ducati XDiavel is the closest thing you could get to the Ducati Diavel. The XDiavel is much more naked looking and makes it front-wheel seem more pushed forward than the Diavel. It looks much more like a cruiser than the Diavel does. Still, many people would mistake these two Ducati models for one another.

Harley-Davidson FXDR 114

AppearancePerformance
50% match56% match

The Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 might not be all that similar in appearances, but it is comparable in the sense that it is a performance cruiser. The FXDR looks much more like a traditional cruiser than the Diavel and might be considered more alike to the XDiavel than the Diavel.

Kawasaki Vulcan S

AppearancePerformance
55% match38% match

The Kawasaki Vulcan S is somewhat similar in appearances but most definitely lacks the performance of the Ducati Diavel. The small engine on the Vulcan S sounds ridiculous in comparison; like a songbird trying to speak crow. Still, the looks are there, so it is a comparable bike.

Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S.

AppearancePerformance
55% match81% match

The Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S. has some resemblance to the Ducati Diavel, but not much. It’s a sleek cruiser but looks more like a train compared to the Diavel. If one would replace the headlight with a less bulky one, fit a short performance tailpipe and chop the rear-end, it might look much more like the Diavel.

Triumph Rocket 3 TFC

AppearancePerformance
75% match104% match

Except for the XDiavel, the Triumph Rocket 3 TFC is probably the closest thing you could get to the Ducati Diavel. With a similar shape and rear-end design, it is possible that a half-blind person could mistake it for the Ducati Diavel. But this is only from the rear. From the front, on the other hand, there is no mistaking those two round headlights on the Rocket 3 models.

Yamaha VMAX

The Yamaha VMAX might be in the same power cruiser category as the Ducati Diavel, but its appearance is very different in many ways. The VMAX is probably the least comparable bike on this list but I thought it might be worth adding.

Final words

I went through all of the bikes I have records of to make this list. If you want, you can go through it yourself: Gas motorcycles by manufacturer – 2020 catalog. I hope this article was useful to you as it is a rather difficult one to answer directly.
