Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Introduction to the "hands free" system

The hands free system allows the rider to start the engine without physically using the ignition key. The ignition key merely has to be in the vicinity of the motorcycle, such as in the rider's pocket, for example, in order to use the vehicle.

Compared to the standard ignition switches the hands free system allows having the hands completely free during usual actions (i.E. Engine ignition/stop, dashboard switch on/off) and engaging/disengaging the steering lock.
