"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

The Diabolus is based on a West Coast Choppers El Diablo, given the similar names and general design.

The Diabolus assumes a similar design to the Hellfury, sharing the long front forks and the small headlight, but lacking a front fender and having dual handlebars, along with pointy ends on the upper plate. The main body features a straighter main frame with a rigid tail, a mostly-cylindrical oil tank with a pointy shape on the rear and black leather seats, while the engine features a cone-shaped air filter and dual curved exhausts. On the rear area, there is a rear fender covering the rear wheel, holding a pillion pad and a silver buddy bar. A small tail light and the license plate can be also seen mounted on the aforementioned buddy bar. An exposed chain drive connects the rear wheel with the rest of the transmission system.

The bike can be seen with either a thin fuel tank similar to the one found in the Hexer (albeit with lower body extensions and a sharp detail above), or a wide, curved one. The primary color of the bike is applied on the fuel/oil tanks and the rear fender, while the secondary color is applied on the main frame. It uses a set of three-spoke rims with bolt details on the surrounding.

The Diabolus is featured in the game's trailer and screen shots, and a beta version exists in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. Unlike the TLAD version, this beta model had a notoriously slim fuel tank seemingly to the Hexer, with the bike's name marked on it. The rear light and the license plate were placed on the left, while the transmission cover and rims were finished in carbon fibre.

The Diabolus returns to Grand Theft Auto Online with an entirely redesigned power-cruiser design, having a similar design to the 2015 Ducati Diavel, with combination of the 2015 Ducati Streetfighter 848, seen particularly in the front headlight, nose, side bodywork and dual exhausts.

The bike features a front mudguard mounted on the chrome fork legs, which are mounted within the black forks with chrome clamps, along with a small fairing that contain a chrome housing with a single headlamp and two small amber indicators with plastic supports. There is a chrome dual support holding the handlebars and the main dials, along with black mirrors on each handlebar. The main body consists of a protective framing covering part of the engine bay, a lower fairing, grey side frames and a large fuel tank, while the engine has dual chrome exhaust tubes that merge into a single tube, before splitting into black dual mufflers with chromed tips. The fuel tank also bears silver lettering displaying the manufacturer name. The rear area mainly consist of a rear section with a wide brake tail lamp and a dual chrome swing-arm holding the rear wheel. There is a black mudguard with a large covering for the chain drive and supported by a single suspension spring, while a black support holds a small rectangular marker light and the license plate. The bike uses a black rectangle-shaped dial with a digital display on it, which derives from race-type vehicles.

The bike only has access to a single colour, which affects the front mudguard, fairings, fuel tank and part of the rear section. The rims appear to be the same as the "Loops" rims available in Los Santos Customs and wrapped in medium-profile tyres, with the rear one being wider.

Performance

The Lost and Damned

The Diabolus, like its twin Hellfury, is an average chopper. Top speed is good and handling is decent, making up for its below average acceleration. Because of its length, cornering at high speed is low, risking the player to slide onto a wall or similar obstacle.

The Diabolus uses a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. The engine emits 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

The Diabolus has good acceleration and top speed in comparison to most motorcycles, although it lacks power to match higher-end motorcycles such as the Bati 801 or the Hakuchou. It also has a stable ride and a good turning radius, but because of its weight it is unable to do wheelies or stoppies.

The Diabolus appears to be powered by a parallel-twin engine and coupled to a 6-speed gearbox, sharing the same sound as most sports bikes such as the Nemesis and the Lectro.

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 Lost MC.
  • Always parked at the 69th Street Diner in Hove Beach, which replaces the Hellfury's spawn point.
  • 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 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".
  • 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.

The Lost and Damned

  • In the beta, the Diabolus had a different, much higher pitched sound. It still exists in the ep1_sounds.dat15 under the name of "DIABOLUS_TEST_HORN", whereas the final one is called "DIABLO_HORN".
