Most of the new motorcycles we've seen recently have been moving away from flashy chrome. The Ducati Diavel Cromo Motorcycle ($TBA) embraces it, with a chrome mirror-finished gas tank that contrasts with other gloss black parts. Of course, it's still a Ducati, so it's loaded with high-performance parts like a 162hp Testastretta 11° engine, Brembo brakes, 14-spoke, 17-inch wheels wrapped with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II rubber, three electronic riding modes, Ride-by-Wire and Ducati Traction Control technology, Marzoochi front forks, a Sachs rear suspension, and a hands-free ignition.
No, not that kind of Diesel. The Ducati Monster Diesel Motorcycle ($14,000) is based on Ducati's Monster 1100 EVO, and designed by Diesel's fashion stylists, led by company founder Renzo Rosso himself. The result is a powerful street bike that is as notable for its military-inspired green and matte black color scheme as it is for its fantastic performance. [Scouted by David]
