In doing this, however, we have made full use of our technical resources, in the sense that we turned directly to Ducati Corse for the components!"
It is important to underline that the DraXter, though inspired by a US phenomenon, was designed in full respect of Ducati's sporting tradition, demonstrated by the fact that the brakes and suspension come from the Panigale Superbike no less!
"Our desire was to celebrate that world with a strong and extreme representation of our values - continues Fabbro - and from this point of view the XDiavel has undergone a significant transformation, showing extraordinary versatility. Basically the bike has become pure aggressiveness, also thanks to significant work in terms of set-up, which now sees greater load at the front."
So with the DraXter, the Ducati Design Center wanted to highlight the point to which customisation of the XDiavel can be taken, capturing the imagination of all the enthusiasts.
"The final goal with this special edition is to demonstrate what it is possible to do with a base such as the XDiavel. For the rest, the structure of the bike, that is the frame, swing-arm and tank, is identical to that of the production model, but the aesthetic impact is totally different. To put it metaphorically, the DraXter is like a sort of short circuit applied to the XDiavel world."
