Roland Sands Helps Ducati Beef Up XDiavels Cruiser Cred

In the ongoing effort to remind the riding world Ducati’s XDiavel is in fact a cruiser, they’ve turned to well-known custom motorcycle builder Roland Sands for performance accessories.

Calling their ride into the cruising world as ‘Courageous, irreverent and unconventional’ the Italian manufacturer feels its new XDiavel brings the Ducati values to the world of the cruiser, uniting concepts that could have seemed diametrically opposed.

To help further this point, an equally interesting name in motorcycle design, Roland Sands has brought his particular style to the Italian cruiser. Born in California, Roland is the founder of a company that's rooted in a passion for custom bikes and design.

The result of the collaboration is a range of unique accessories, machined from solid aluminum, the parts conceived by the American designer combine practicality, design and lightness. The intricate machine-worked finishings add characteristic detail even to the smallest elements, transforming each accessory into a unique design item.

The exclusive fuel tank closure is the perfect combination of design and practicality with Ducati noting, not needing a key for the fuel tank does in fact make filling it up a lot simpler.

Other accessories include an aluminum belt flange, counterweights for the handlebars, frame caps and brake and clutch fluid reservoir covers, all of which enjoy details that encapsulate the personality of the XDiavel.

These accessories can be found at dealerships or in the online catalogue.
