If the air filter is dirty, the engine could get damaged.

Check engine oil level

General Information on the 2017-2018 Ducati XDiavel S

To mount the front pulley the engine cover has been specially redesigned. The final 28/80 ratio corresponds to a drive ratio of 15/43. The XDiavel exhaust is a 2-in-1 system with a chamber-type body and two tail pipes. Exhaust pipe routing deliberately leaves the engine in view; likewise, the central body has been positioned in front of the rear wheel, making it practically invisible.

The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 is a completely new, Euro 4 type-approved engine featuring the DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) system. First introduced on the Multistrada 1200, it has been re-thought and recalibrated to put out high torque even at low revs, ensuring fluid, low-rpm power delivery and a full toque curve all the way to the high revs. The Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 has a maximum power of 156 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13.1 kgm at 5,000 rpm.
