Ducati Diavel Carbon 1/12 Scale Diecast Metal Model Motorcycle by Maisto
Maisto 1/12 scale model motorcycles are highly detailed and measure approximately 6.5 inches long by 4.5 inches high by 2 inches wide, depending on the particular model. They are made of a combination of die cast metal and plastic parts. They have a working kick stand, the handle bars can steer and the wheels can spin. These models don’t need any assembly or painting. They are ready for display out of the box (or even inside the box). These models, as any other scale models, are fragile and not intended to be used as toys to be played with unless one is very careful (Recommended for 5 year old and older). Branding and paint schemes are accurate. They come packaged in a window box which measures approximately 8 inches long by 4.75 inches high by 2.75 deep.
Model measures approximately, depending on specific model, 6.5 inches x 4.5 inches x 2 inches
Package measures approximately 9 inches x 5 inches x 3.5 inches
The engine is a retuned version of the 1,198.4 cc (73.13 cu in) Testastretta from the 1198 superbike, now called the Testastretta 11° for its 11° valve overlap (reduced from 41°).
Styling for the Diavel was developed in-house, although the project began under the leadership of Ducati's previous design chief, Pierre Terblanche, who commissioned Glynn Kerr, freelance designer and design columnist for Motorcycle Consumer News, to produce the initial concept sketches. In the US, most Diavel buyers appear to be existing riders age 50 and over, with more women than usual attracted to the bike, and some Harley-Davidson owners, especially V-Rod riders, trading for the new Ducati power cruiser.
