At the Motor Bike Expo of Verona, Ducati has unveiled a further addition to its XDiavel cruiser world, the all-new draXter. This concept bike interprets the XDiavel world from a sports viewpoint. The project was developed by the Ducati Design Center’s Advanced Design area, a section dedicated to exploring the future style and design concepts of Ducati motorcycles.
Their ideas and sketches have allowed the Ducati prototype department to come up with the draXter, starting from a standard production XDiavel. The beating heart of the draXter is that of an extreme dragster with premium racing componentry. This is particularly evident, for example, in the suspension and brakes, taken directly from the Panigale Superbike. This styling exercise has accentuated the lines and proportions of the XDiavel making them more extreme than ever and turning the draXter into a unique, breath-taking racer.
The number 90 on the side of the Ducati draXter recalls the racing world, yet also pays homage to Ducati’s 90th anniversary, being celebrated this year.
