Cycle World Magazine has a new three-part video series where they pit the 2015 Ducati Diavel against other performance machines that may be able to give it a run for its money on the drag strip. Right from the get-go the Ducati has some stiff competition, because the first video in the series has it stacked up against a 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible.
When it comes to short, quick sprints like a quarter-mile drag race, a bike will almost always has the advantage. Obviously motorcycles are much lighter and usually have the power-to-weight advantage, giving them the jump off the line, but the Diavel is producing 162 horsepower to the Corvette’s 460, which seems like a massive gap.
So is the Ducati really any match for the latest and greatest version America’s sportscar? Find out in the video below.
