Zircotec motorcycle exhaust ceramic coating selected by Ducati & fashion company Diesel for the next limited edition Diavel bike

Ducati has teamed up with fashion company Diesel to create a truly original limited edition bike – to be called the Diavel Diesel. Designed by the Ducati Design Center and Creative Director of Diesel, Andrea Rosso, the Diavel Diesel has a retro-styling that certainly stands out from the standard Diavel. And with Diavel meaning “evil, like the devil”, the devil theme is continued with production being limited to just 666 numbered models when it goes on sale in April 2017.

Ducati Motor Holding CEO Claudio Domenicali said “the collaboration with Diesel fashion allowed us to explore original styling and technical aspects whilst staying within and respecting the Ducati brand and its values,” going on to say that “in this case we worked with Diesel on an already uniquely original bike like the Diavel and the result was surprising to put it mildly. The details characterising the Diavel Diesel cannot fail to captivate connoisseurs of special bikes, but also people from very different walks of life, such as fashion. It is always stimulating for us to move outside the world of motorcycling and broaden our brand’s areas of coverage.”

“Zircotec’s own relationship with Ducati now spans a number of the manufacturer’s models” said Zircotec Group Sales Director Graeme Barette. He went on to say “our patented smooth black ceramic coating provides a highly durable and attractive finish that forms part of the bike’s overall styling, whist also offering thermal protection to reduce heat soak, avoid damage to components close to the exhaust, and potentially improve performance and reliability. Derived from our ever-more-popular Endurance Range™ and applied using Zircotec’s own proprietary plasma-sprayed process, the motorcycle exhaust ceramic coating provides an extremely well adhered and hard wearing finish that is highly resistant to stone chips and significantly outlasts aftermarket paints. The range presents manufacturers with a new form of low-maintenance customisation that looks fantastic, is long lasting, and is easy to maintain, offering a route by which a motorbike exhaust system can be remodelled to match overall styling needs.”
