A unique and stylish interpretation of the XDiavel sport cruiser comes as the result of a partnership between two Italian companies: Ducati and Poltrona Frau’s Interiors. Everyone knows that Ducati is an icon, but Poltrona Frau is not just any run-of-the-mill design company either: founded in 1912, they have a long-standing reputation for leather manufacturing including seating for cars, yachts, trains, airplanes, and more. They’re also known for their collaborations with some of the best international architects and designers. Both companies share a passion for traditional craftsmanship and the use of innovative technologies. The result: a motorcycle that comes with unique aesthetics and offers sublime comfort and high-level performance.
Only 500 motorcycles will be produced in this limited-edition 2022 series and they will feature elegant Black on Black livery and customizable Pelle Frau saddle. Each piece will have the serial number engraved on a dedicated plate.

Made of Pelle Frau trademarked soft natural leather, the unique handmade saddle is what makes this series stand out. The leather comes from Scandinavia, is saddled by hand, and has a natural grain after tanning with chromium salt. This unique seat comes in five colors: Rosso siam, Steel blue, Cemento, India, and Selva, and each one is seriously gorgeous. Another nice touch is a pattern of laser-engraved X (as in XDiavel). The saddle is not only beautiful but also incredibly comfortable as it is wide and comes with a backrest.
The 2022 Ducati XDiavel Nera will be available soon with an MSRP of $29,795. In addition, the lucky 500 buyers get a document holder and key ring made of the same soft leather as the saddle. They also get the option of buying a Ducati-branded Arai Ram-X motorcycle helmet.
