Taking a slightly different road is the 2018 Ducati Scrambler Hashtag, which follows the Tesla scheme of online purchasing with a base price of 6,990 euro, ex-Italy (RM33,635). This special Scrambler Sixty2, only available online, comes with a dedicated colour scheme of Midnight Black and a different seat.

Also included in the specifications list is mudguard and handlebar in the same Midnight Black with orange Scrambler logo. The seat unit is taken from the Scrambler Desert Sled and is claimed to be very comfortable.

Currently available in Italy, France, Germany, Spain and Portugal, the buying process for the Scrambler Hashtag begins with the purchase of a 500 euro (RM2,400) voucher from the dedicated website. The buyer then heads to the Ducati dealer named in the voucher, and finalises the balance payment and delivery date.

Additionally, successful purchasers of the Scrambler Hashtag are given a 20% bonus on original Sixty2 accessories as well as the Ducati Scrambler clothing and lifestyle range. Deliveries for the 2018 Ducati Scrambler Hashtag are expected to begin in mid-March.

The Sixty2 is the smallest machine in Ducati’s Scrambler range, with its V-twin power plant putting out 41 hp at 8,750 rpm, with torque rated at 34.6 Nm at 8,000 rpm. In Malaysia, the Scrambler Sixty2 retails at RM49,999, including GST, but excluding road tax, insurance and registration.
