    I used to have one. They're crazy good bikes for what they're designed to do, and it's surprising just how much they can do.

    They have two shortcomings, neigther of which should come as a surprise. First, the suspension travel is quite limited, so going over bumps can be rough. Second, they suck at turning while going slow.

    If you can live with those issues, they're a ton of fun.

    P.S. I'll add one more thing to the list. I had the full Termignoni system and generally ran it with baffles out 'cause I like loud bikes. And the XDiavel sounds glorious like this. But due to the rather odd exhaust configuration, the exhaust is very close to the ground and pointed directly downward, which reflects sound right off the pavement and back at the rider. I didn't think it was possible for a bike to be "too loud," but the XDiavel with baffles out proved me wrong! I came back from every ride with ringing in my ears which lasted for hours, so I finally traded for a Monster 1200S.

    I'm curious is this tire only manufactured by Pirelli or can you buy the same tire from other tire manufacturers? Seems like it would be expensive if you can only by the tire from one source. Phenomenal looking bike

    I have '13 HD Night Rod Special that has a Dunlop 240 rear.

    The NRS is comparable to the Diavel in their intentions. Big, powerful street bruisers. Hell, my NRS has slipper clutch, USD (upside down) forks, brembo calipers, steel brake lines and has the Porsche engineered liquid cooled engine. It will get down when i want it to.

    I looked hard at the Diavels when i was shopping and ending up getting the HD. I still contemplate a Diavel though.

    Great bike erick....you need to build an addition to your garage or make a permanent canopy/shelter with an EZ-UP!!!

    I need to ride one soon. The Norge and Tuono need a cruiser stablemate. Tried several Harley’s at NHMS last Saturday in between races. The new soft tails were a hoot but the party stops at 5200rpm. Lots of low mile Carbons for sale in NH. They have the mid controls & most owners added the exhaust, I would have to add a quick-shifter/auto-blipper for sure. The Tuono has spoiled me.

    Beautiful bike enjoy the summer
