The Ducati Diavel is a cruiser motorcycle presented by Ducati at the 2010 EICMA Motorcycle Show and released in 2011. It came in two versions: the Dark, which was the standard model, and the Carbon, which featured Marchesini wheels, a carbon front mudguard, a carbon tank, seat cowling, and a coated suspension.

In 2013 Ducati released a motorcycle named Diavel Cromo, based on the first generation of the Dark platform, which featured only mirror-chrome visual updates, such as a chrome tank with the classic Ducati logo, silver lower headlight shroud, exhaust system, and its forged-aluminum wheels, to compete on the modern cruiser market.

In other departments, the House of Bologna left the Cromo version unchanged compared to the base model.

The beating heart of the Cromo lays down power from a 1198cc four-stroke Desmodromic liquid-cooled engine paired to a six-speed manual gearbox and boasting power levels of 162 hp at 9,500 rpm and 127 Nm (94 lb-ft) of torque at 8,000 rpm.

For suspension, the model uses a 50 mm fully adjustable Marzocchi upside-down fork on the front and a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock with progressive linkage on the rear.

In the braking department, the 2013 Ducati Diavel Cromo has 320 mm discs, four-piston calipers, Brembo monobloc on the front, and a 265 mm disc, two-piston caliper on the rear.

The model was for sale in 2022 starting from $9,000.
