The instrument panel provides for four display modes. The Default mode only displays the basic elements with a particularly stylish design and is a new feature for Ducati. The other three, in turn, are the classic Track, Full and City displays matched with the Riding Modes.

The Diavel 1260 is fitted with dedicated electrical boxes with red, backlit buttons. The Cruise Control function requires dedicated buttons in order to engage the system and adjust speed. In static conditions it is possible to access a setting menu through the left handlebar box in order to adjust various functions, including DTC, DWC and ABS. In either static or dynamic conditions, it is possible to switch Riding Mode, choosing between Sport, Touring and Urban.

Moreover, the Diavel 1260 S is fitted with the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS): by connecting a smartphone to the instrument panel via bluetooth, it is possible to manage and display incoming calls and text messages, besides displaying all information concerning the current playlist. DMS is available as an accessory also on Diavel 1260.
