Ducati Scrambler Hashtag introduced in Europe

Ducati has unveiled the Ducati Scrambler Hashtag for the European market. It is the first Scrambler that is only available online. However, customers will have to take delivery of the bike from the dealership only.
In order to purchase the bike, the customer has to buy the EUR 500 voucher from the Scrambler website. After that, the customer can select the nearest dealer to pick up the bike. Along with the voucher, Ducati also offers a 20% discount on Scrambler accessories and merchandise. The remaining payment and contract signing is done at the dealer and then the rider can decide on a delivery date. For now, the Ducati Scrambler Hashtag will be available in Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and France. The deliveries will commence from mid-March.
The Ducati Scrambler Hashtag is based on the Scrambler Sixty2. The bike comes with an all-black paint job with orange Scrambler logo on the fuel tank sides. The single piece seat is ribbed, and the stubby exhaust is black as well. Pirelli dual sport tyres wrap the 18-inch front and the 17-inch rear alloy wheels.
The 399 cc L-twin engine with air cooling delivers 40 PS at 8,750 rpm and 34 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The engine pairs with a 6-speed transmission. The engine sits inside a tubular steel Trellis frame, which rides on 41 mm Showa telescopic front fork and rear Kayaba monoshock. The Hashtag costs EUR 6,990. It is unlikely that Ducati will launch the Hashtag in India.
