The special edition Ducati Scrambler Hashtag is painted in Midnight Black colour and has new seat borrowed from the Desert Sled
Venturing into a completely different path in terms of sales, the 2018 Ducati Scrambler Hashtag is up for customers’ grabs only online with an entry ex-showroom, Italy price of 6,990 euro (approx. Rs. 5.57 lakh). In order to differentiate it from the rest of the range and maintain exclusivity, the limited production-run Scrambler Sixty2 wears a brand new paint scheme and new seat.
The Midnight Black colour is obvious from the first glance while the equipment list composes of the upright handlebar and mudguard finished in the same contrast theme. The sporty orange accents on the mudguard along with orange Scrambler logo on either side of the fuel tank further accentuate its appeal.
The new seat setup is borrowed from the Desert Sled and is claimed to have good comfortability. The purchase of the new special edition Scrambler involves a list of process. First, the aspiring owners need to buy a voucher worth 500 euro from an exclusive web portal.
They have to visit the Ducati’s dealerships mentioned in the Voucher before shelling out the remaining payment and sign off with a date of delivery. In addition, the buyers of the Scrambler Hashtag are offered a 20 percent bonus on the accessories available for Sixty2, Ducati Scrambler lifestyle and clothing among other apparels.
The special Scrambler comes powered by the dedicated V-twin engine which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 41 horsepower at 8,750 rpm and 34.6 Nm of peak torque. Despite being the smallest and most accessible Scrambler in its range, the Sixty2 is not sold in India due to expected high import costs that will impact the market pricing.
Initially made available only in some European nations like Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Germany, the deliveries of the 2018 Ducati Hashtag are reported to commence from the middle of next month.
