Street-fighting power and nimbleness meet open-road amenities in the Ducati Diavel Strada Motorcycle ($15,000). Powered by the same Testastretta 11° engine as its stablemates, the Strada comes standard with a number of comfort-focused accessories like side bags, a windshield, a larger seat, and raised handlebars. All of which help to make it ideal for long-distance rides — without giving up any of the performance features that make it a Ducati.
It might not look like it, but you're gazing upon the world's fastest big block V-twin. The Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat Motorcycle ($72,000) set the record of 172.2 mph on the Bonneville Salts, which translates to 200 mph on asphalt. It's 2,163cc, 160 hp X132 Combat Twin engine deserves most of the credit, but it's helped along by a 5-speed transmission, custom suspension, BlackStone Tek Carbon Fiber wheels, front Beringer and rear Brembo brakes, LED lighting, and a total body weight under 500 lbs. Limited to just 36 examples worldwide.
Most "anniversary" vehicles tend to be little more than a few badges and some fancy embroidery — which is why we're so impressed with the Ducati Monster 20th Anniversary Motorcycle ($TBA). A recreation of the original model, it features a bronze-colored frame, a chromium-plated finish, a gold-finished Brembo braking system, and a vintage Ducati '86 logo on the tank, and current-generation technology that makes it a near-perfect marriage of old and new.
