Limited production.

The company will be building 500 of them.

The Diavel Titanium does, indeed, use titanium. The lightweight metal is used for the tank covers and headlamp cover. A combination of titanium and carbon fiber are used on the passenger seat cover.

And on the subject of carbon fiber, the large air intakes are made of the material.

The exhaust pipes have a matt black ceramic coating. The forged wheels are aluminum.

Overall, the bike weighs just 516 pounds. And given that there is a 162-hp engine, well, just imagine what 500 lucky riders are going to experience.
