"You need to be careful inviting a Diabolus into your life. Sure, it'll provide a swift injection of all the ruggedness and suavity you never had. But before long it'll be wearing your slippers, smoking your slimline cigarettes and conducting a torrid affair with your spouse. And when that happens, Benny has the only solution: a savage reworking into a tightly wound street racer, complete with docked handlebars and track ergonomics. You're welcome."
Benny's Original Motor Works description.

The Diabolus is a chopper style motorcycle in The Lost and Damned and a streetfighter in Grand Theft Auto Online, featured as part of the Import/Export update. It is manufactured by Western Motorcycle Company in TLAD and Principe in GTA Online.

Design

The Lost and Damned

This motorbike is commonly used by The Lost Brotherhood, and is based on a West Coast Choppers El Diablo. The Diabolus looks nearly identical to the Hellfury (but with different exhaust pipes, exhaust note, a different fuel tank and an added buddy bar above the rear fender). The Diabolus comes with two different fuel tanks: a slim one similar to the one found in the Hexer (with extra detailings) and a wide, curved one.

It is featured in the game's trailer and screen shots and beta version of its file exists in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. Unlike the TLAD version, the beta Diabolus had a notoriously slim fuel tank (similar to the Hexer), with the bike's name printed on it. The rear light and the license plate has moved to left and the Diabolus has carbon rims.

Returning to GTA Online as part of the Import/Export update, the bike now gains a completely new power cruiser design, where it is now similar to that of the 2015 Ducati Diavel with combination of the 2015 Ducati Streetfighter 848, seen particularly in the front headlight, nose, side bodywork and dual exhausts, giving it similarities to the naked streetfighter sharing the same chassis, the Vortex. Its headlights are similar to the Lectro, another vehicle by Principe.

Performance

The Lost and Damned

The Diabolus, like its twin Hellfury, is an average chopper. Its top speed is what makes up for its lacking acceleration. And at times, over-steer is a problem; because of its length, high speeds along with cornering can end with an unpleasant end in a wall. It's pretty durable for those gunfights, but thinking about a slick getaway is impossible with just a rim. Because of its size, this bike isn't the pick of the litter when it comes to wheelies and endos; after all, its a chopper. But besides the cornering, its handling and top speed is great and ensures a good ride.

The engine appears to be a V-twin model, with a high-revving, odd-firing noise which sounds to be partially or fully unrestricted due to the loud noise output and popping sounds coming from the exhaust chamber.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Compared to other motorcycles, the Diabolus has good acceleration and top speed. The bike has a stable ride and a good turning radius, but because of its weight it is unable to do wheelies or stoppies.

Description

The Diabolus Custom is a custom variant of the Diabolus in GTA Online sporting a naked design, more visual modifications and custom liveries available.

Locations

The Lost and Damned

  • The Diabolus is not commonly found on the streets, but as many bikes in the game, one can call Clay for one.
  • Can be found parked on the west side of the Lost MC Clubhouse, in the alleyway.
  • Can be rarely seen driven by the The Lost Brotherhood.
  • Always parked at the 69th Street Diner in Hove Beach, which replaces the Hellfury's spawn point in TLaD.
  • The player can call Clay for one after completion of the mission Angels in America.
  • As Clay and Terry's default vehicle, it can be obtained during gang wars if one of them dies on the same.
  • Can be obtained during a random encounter with Brian Jeremy (if the later is spared in the mission Bad Standing). A Diabolus is provided in case the player arrives on foot, another one left by Brian at the ambush spot, two other bikes going up the stairs after taking out the enemies and a fifth one that is used by Brian to escape that can be obtained after killing him.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Trivia

  • The default radio stations for the Diabolus are:
  • Obvious to its real-life counterpart in TLAD, the name Diabolus seems to come from combining the word "diablo", which means devil in Spanish, and "fabulous".

The Lost and Damned

  • In TLAD Terry drives a blue Diabolus and Clay a purple Diabolus. Due to the Diabolus not being included in Grand Theft Auto V, Terry and Clay instead drive Hexer bikes painted in their respective Diabolus colors during the mission Mr. Philips.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • It is the first bike returning from The Lost and Damned with a different design and a different manufacturer.
