Lucky for you, we’re going to discuss all you need to know about this brand new motorcycle model in this article. We’ll also be talking more about the brands, so read further!
Having been established in 1963 in Italy, Lamborghini remains to complete the list of the most luxurious car brands in the world up to this day. Believe it or not, the company has such a remarkable history. Did you know that the brand’s founder, Ferrucio Lamborghini, successfully owned a tractor business before pursuing today’s well-known Lamborghini automobile brand? And the reason why Ferrucio chose to start his own line of cars is such an old but gold story.
Sometime in the 1950s, Ferrucio found out something in his owned Ferrari mobile that infuriated him. It turned out that Ferrari was using the same clutch that Ferrucio use in his manufactured tractors, and this caused a feud between him and Ferrari’s founder, Enzo Ferrari. Ferrucio confronted Enzo about this matter, and Enzo told him that he’s just a farmer and a tractor driver and that he shouldn’t complain about driving Ferrari’s cars because they’re the “best” ones in the world.
Apparently, it didn’t go well, and Ferrucio decided to take his mechanical automobile business to the next level to show Enzo how a sports car should be built. In 1964, Lamborghini first released its 350GT that captured people’s drive. The rest was history, and the company is now home to three world-famous models that sell thousands of units annually: the Huracan, Aventador, and the Urus. The cheapest Lambo you can get is the Huracan at $207,337, and the most expensive is the Aventador at $360,084.
Despite the hefty price of Lambos, people still choose to get these cars for the high-quality build, unique design, and outstanding features that complete each model, not to mention the top speed of the supercars! The Sián, for example, has approximately 218 mph top speed, which is hands-down amazing!
Today, Ferrucio’s original tractor is still up and running, while Lamborghini remains one of the world’s most luxurious brands.
Like Lamborghini, Ducati also has such an interesting history before it all started. The Ducati brothers (Adriano, Bruno, and Marcelo) were famous for establishing Società Scientifica Radio Brevetti Ducati, specializing in manufacturing radio components. Their first business was booming, especially because technology was scarce back then. World War II took place, and their production was stopped as the aftermath. The brothers, then, needed to make a different strategy and approach to solve their financial issues by diverting their production to four-stroke engines and motorcycles instead of continuing the complex creation of radio components.
In 1945, the Ducati brothers were able to manufacture a propulsion motor-based bicycle, leading it to success in its release in 1946 and making it one of the first racing motorcycles. Fast-forward to 1949, Ducati produced the Ducati 6, which is the first complete motorcycle. These achievements molded Ducati as a pioneer of producing world-class racing motorcycles that we all know today.
Did you know that Ducati owns the title of winning the most Superbike World Championship awards at 318 wins? That’s more than any of their competitors in the championship could have. This proves that Ducati produces winning motorcycles, and people from all over the world agree!

Sián FKP 37: The Inspiration for Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini
As Lamborghini put it to words, this Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is a two-wheeled version of the supercar, Sián FKP 37. Aesthetically speaking, you can recognize the signature color scheme for the four-wheeled mobile on the motorcycle. The makers intend to transfer the core dynamics and concept of Sián FKP 37 and introduce them in the motorcycle industry. Of course, Lamborghini and Ducati guaranteed that the significant components were redesigned to cater to a motorcycle setup. Additionally, the “63” on Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini’s livery also stands for the number of Sián units ever produced.
There’s no doubt that Lamborghini and Ducati stand as one of the world’s luxurious automobile brands; this is why you can expect the best motorcycle when the two Italian mobile brands come together and join forces.
