Translogic host Jonathon Buckley takes a ride on the all new XDiavel S from Ducati. With 1,262 cc of displacement, this motorcycle packs a punch, but does it live up to its 'techno cruiser' moniker?

"The idea here is that we have the most technologically-advanced cruiser," said Jason Chinnock, CEO of Ducati North America. "We decided that it was important to capture kind of the raw elements of a cruiser, but then look forward to the future...in regards to technology that Ducati can bring to the table and bring to this market."

The laundry list of technologies include keyless ignition, traction control, cornering ABS, Ducati power launch control, customizable ride modes, and other connected tech like a Bluetooth link between the rider's helmet and the bike. Of course, Bucko had to test out wheelie control on the XDiavel S.

"You've got 156 horsepower and 95 ft-lbs of torque," said Jonathon. "That basically means that I'm currently riding a cruiser that not only can do wheelies, but wants to do wheelies."
