The Ducati XDiavel was produced to better fit the needs of the typical cruiser rider, and to go after Harley-Davidson’s choke-hold on the cruiser demographic. The Italian machine has had mixed success in that regard, though it brings far more performance into the category than ever seen before.
Tapping more into the strong custom scene, the Bologna Brand has been looking to the talents of various well-known fabricators to build upon the XDiavel platform.
This time up is Belgium’s Fred Krugger, who has created this very intriguing “Thiverval” XDiavel model for the Bikers’ Classics event in Belgium.
Thiverval takes its name from a small race track on the outskirts of Paris, and takes on Krugger’s usual interesting style that is part modern and part retro.
His aesthetic is especially interesting on the XDiavel, a machine that itself brings a bit modernity to the heritage-focused demographic found in the cruiser market.
