Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Carrying the maximum load allowed

Ducati Diavel Owners Manual / General indications / Carrying the maximum load allowed

Your motorcycle is designed for travelling over long distances with a full load in complete safety.

Even weight distribution is critical to preserving these safety features and avoiding trouble when performing sudden manoeuvres or riding on bumpy roads.

Warning


Do not exceed the total permitted weight for the motorcycle and pay attention to information provided below regarding load capacity.

Information on load capacity

The total weight of the motorcycle in running order including rider, passenger, luggage and additional accessories should not exceed: 400 kg.

Important


Arrange your luggage or heavy accessories in the lowest possible position and close to motorcycle centre.

Secure the luggage firmly to the motorcycle structure.

Luggage incorrectly secured may cause the motorcycle to become unstable.

Never attach bulky or heavy objects to the top yoke or front mudguard, as this would cause dangerous instability.

Do not insert objects into gaps in the frame, where they could interfere with moving parts.

If the side panniers are fitted (available upon request from the ducati spare parts service), divide the baggage and accessories based on their weight and place them uniformly inside the side panniers. Lock both side panniers using the suitable key lock.

Make sure the tyres are inflated to the proper pressure indicated at page 162 and that they are in good condition.
