Ducati XDiavel has a muscular fuel tank, twin-tip exhaust, rider-only saddle, forward-set footpegs, full-LED lighting, and digital instrument console. The S model sports silver highlights on the wheels, while the Dark variant gets matte black paintwork which adds to the stealthy look. Finally, the Black Star trim has black and silver paint with a red stripe and a suede seat cover with red stitching.

In terms of safety equipment, the Ducati XDiavel is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with cornering ABS, cornering traction control, and Ducati Power launch for better handling on the roads.
