Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: The immobilizer system

For additional antitheft protection, the motorcycle is equipped with an immobilizer, an electronic system that locks the engine automatically whenever the ignition switch is turned off.

The grip of each ignition key contains an electronic device that modulates the output signal from a special antenna located under the seat when the ignition is switched on.

The modulated signal acts as a password (which is different at each start-up) and tells the ecu that an "authorised" ignition key is being used to start up the engine. When the ecu recognises the signal, it enables engine start-up.
