Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Engine on/off

Warning


Before starting the engine, become familiar with the controls you will need to use when riding (page 99).

Warning


Never start or run the engine indoors. Exhaust gases are toxic and may lead to loss of consciousness or even death within a short time.

In the presence of the active or passive key, perform a key- on (turning on the "hands free" system and all on-board electronic devices) by pushing the red switch (1, fig. 117), On the right side of the handlebar, downward.

The instrument panel on handlebar will perform the initialisation and will control the onboard systems, turning on all lights in sequence, from outside to inside, for a few seconds.

After this control, only the green light (2, fig. 118) And the red light (3) must remain on.


Warning


The side stand must be fully up (in a horizontal position) as its safety sensor prevents engine start when down.

After key-on, but with the engine not yet started, the system will perform a key-off automatically if the presence of the active key is not detected within 10 seconds.
