Limited Edition 2022 Ducati XDiavel Nera First Look
Ducati revealed a new limited edition XDiavel produced in conjunction with Italian furniture and interior design house Poltrona Frau. The 2022 Ducati XDiavel Nera will be available in a numbered run of 500 units, priced at US$29,795. That’s a hefty $4,200 premium over the XDiavel S
Making less sense is what the extra 42 Benjamins get you: a black-on-black livery plus a special leather saddle.
The seat is constructed of a hand-crafted soft natural leather called “Pelle Frau.” Poltrona Frau says the material undergoes a specific tanning process to provide breathability, plux rub and stain resistance. The XDiavel Nera’s seats are laser-engraved with an “X” pattern and come in a choice of five colors: Siam Red, Steel Blue, Cemento (gray), India (orange) and Selva (green).
The Nera comes with the standard seat as well as a wider comfort saddle and a backrest, all in the same color of Pelle Frau leather. All 500 XDiavel Nera models will also come with an exclusive key ring and a Pelle Frau document holder.
The 2022 Ducati XDiavel Nera is available for order now, and is due to arrive in dealerships in March. Again, the Nera is priced at $29,795, a premium price over the XDiavel ($25,595), the XDiavel Dark ($20,895) and the XDiavel Black Star ($25,995).
The Nera was revealed in the first of three Ducati World Première online presentations. While we can respect the craftsmanship of a finely made leather seat, we hope the other two, scheduled for March 3 and March 10, will be a bit more interesting.
