In addition to the recently unveiled Ducati 1199 Panigale and Ducati Superbike 848 EVO Corse, the Bologna brand has one more that it is debuting at EICMA this year: the Ducati Diavel Cromo. Similar to the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition, the Diavel Cromo is really more of a restyling of the Italian power cruiser than a new model. Adding mirrored finished pieces to the Diavel, we imagine Ducati is trying a little bit harder to go after the blinged cruiser demographic with this one, as the Ducati Diavel Cromo sports a chrome-like fuel tank panel, retro-style seat, and laser-etched air intakes.
We’ve never been a huge fan of how the Diavel looks (the bike is a hoot to ride though), though the Ducati Diavel Cromo does make some pleasing gestures aesthetically to us. While we still wouldn’t call the bike pleasing to the eye overall, those that found the original as another work of Ducati’s art, might find the Diavel Cromo equally pleasing, if not more so. No word on price or availability yet, though we expect the production run to be limited.
