The visual changes to the Diavel are immediately noticalble with the carbon detailing, larger air scoops on either side of the fuel tank and the use of LED technology for bright, efficient, and stylish lighting. In the rear, the Diavel trademark of two vertical LED strips follow the precise line of the under-seat paneling, keeping the lines of the bike sleek and minimal by serving as both the brake lamps and directional indicators.
Under the surface the engine is still a 1,198cc, liquid-cooled, eight-valve V-twin, but is updated with twin spark plugs per cylinder, new camshafts and a higher compression ratio.
