Ducati Monster Cromo 900 : 1999

The photos do not do this bike justice. 900cc.

Comment(s): 8

Ducati's Limited Edition 1999 Monster Cromo 900. This was the first and only year for this carburated model, until the reintroduction of the fuel injected version for 2001, then discontinued again.

The list of accessories include:
- Carbon fiber air vent panels kit.
- Kick stand bolt.
- Carbon fiber clutch cover.
- Roadracing brushed aluminum tail section.
- Roadracing dash kit with tach.
- Stolz steering dampner.
- Stage-2 jet kit.
- Carbon fiber headlight fairing kit.
- Exhaust pipes polished.
- Tank protector.
- Billet footpegs.
- Aluminum oil cover.
- Carbon fiber high mount exhaust pipes.
- Geza bike cover.

Brand new battery put in on 6-23-5. All OEM stock items are also included.

My favorite, and I believe the most valuable of all the carbureted 900 Monsters, is the 1999 Chromo model. The Chromo is obviously unique because of its chrome tank. However, in 1999 the Chromo also received the adjustable front forks and the higher-output 74hp engine. Cosmetically it shared many styling cues with the 900S, such as the black frame and wheels and carbon fiber front fender. In addition, the Chromo was decked out with a carbon fiber rear fender and rear seat cover. There was no Chromo model for 2000, and by the time it reappeared in 2001 with fuel injection, Ducati had robbed the bike of the adjustable front suspension.

Alex, this bike was alot of fun ( I did my first wheelies on it). The fuel injected bikes are even better (this one was carbutared).

I have one, and I think its a fantastic bike, a true streetfighter. I opted for Staintune exhaust, in the standard location, to keep with the chrome appearance. But the carbon under/side of the seat exhaust is pretty cool also. Without the belt covers, etc., it looks pure rocket. The mirrors have got to go, to lose the mosquito look of the front, and tiny billet bar end units are what I opted for. It visually brings the handlebars way down, clip ons not necessary, but a damper sure helps! Good luck.

How about maintenance: valve adjustments and keeping it in tune, is this a hassle and expensive for such a bike? I am thinking of getting one and I wanted to do the research first.
