Taking a leaf out of their Monster play book from 1998, Ducati have today announced the return of the Cromo nameplate for the 2012 Ducati Diavel Cromo. This new addition brings the Diavel range to 4 models.
The innovative Ducati Diavel introduces a new Cromo model for 2012, in addition to the Diavel AMG Special Edition, recently unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. First introduced to an excited public at the 2010 Milan International Motorcycle Show, the Ducati Diavel went on to amaze motorcyclists the world over, collecting awards along the way and becoming one of Ducati’s top selling models.
The Cromo adds the flawless shine of the chromium-plated tank, which contrasts starkly yet stylishly with the gloss black, gives the Diavel real cult status. This vintage interpretation of Diavel style is completed by horizontal seat stitching and classic Ducati logos. In all other aspects the specification is the same as the standard Diavel model.
For 2012, the Ducati Diavel is available in four exciting versions. The standard Diavel, and the Diavel Carbon now stand alongside the brand new and stunning Diavel Cromo and the exclusive Diavel AMG Special Edition.
To our eyes here at Ducati News Today, this model is the most striking of all the Diavel’s and with a price of $18,995 is a $1,500 premium to the standard model.
[UPDATE] Earlier we reported a lower price for the Diavel Cromo. This was due to an erroneous price on the Ducati Web site which has since been corrected. Apologies to any readers who thought they were in for a Diavel bargain.
