Ducati XDiavel Modified By Fred Krugger, Names It “The Thiverval”

Ducati’s special xDiavel will soon be unveiled at ‘Bikers Classics’ on 2017. Known by the name ‘ The Thiverval’, this custom built Ducati was made by Belgium based customizer Fred Krugger to unlock the potential of customization on the Ducati xDiavel.

The machine is named the Thiverval after a small racetrack located just out of Paris and is possibly one of the most extreme versions of Ducati’s powercruiser ever created.

The original lines created by the Ducati designers are still evident, with the engine in full view, while the trellis frame has been deliberately hidden from sight. Much of Krugger’s work centered around the tank and seat design, although Krugger elected to keep the iconic XDiavel headlight.

Krugger has named the motorcycle ‘The Thiverval’, based on a tiny race track near Paris and was officially unveiled to the public on July 1st at a demonstration on the Spa-Franchamps Circuit in Belgium – the legendary home of the annual Belgian Grand Prix.


The signature trellis frame has now been covered with flat metal sides and results in the focus shifting towards the Testastretta 1262cc V-Twin engine block engine.The corresponding rear foot-pegs and other parts were also removed to give it a cleaner look.

The standard right facing twin-exhaust unit is also replaced by a stealthier twin-trapezoidal under-seat exhaust setup.The rear features a rectangular brake light, one reminding us of the racing bikes developed by Ducati in the early 1960s.
