In 1999, Ducati released a special edition of the Monster. They called it the Cromo, and it was obviously named due to the distinctive tank, which was complemented by a carbon fiber rear seat cover and rear fender. It also got adjustable front forks and the high-po 74 horsepower engine.
The next year, Ducati added fuel injection to the Monster and cancelled the Cromo. Ducati aficionados will know that the brand brought the Cromo model back in 2001 (with fuel injection), though that bike lost most of the goodies like the adjustable front forks – it was basically base Dark model with a shiny tank. Thankfully, this example has been so well modified that you’ll be fine.
Highlights include an Ohlins shock, steering stabilizer, aluminum clipons, Brembo calipers, and a whole bunch of carbon fiber to complement the stock pieces: front fender, windscreen, engine covers, exhaust covers, heel guard, and headlight bracket. In addition, it’s got a Termi exhaust, CycleCat aluminum rear sets, and LED brake light/front turn signals. From a maintenance standpoint, it has a recent battery replacement and a timing belt that was replaced 1,000 miles ago. The bike has approximately 17,000 miles and the sale includes two black keys and the owner’s manual.
