Should be done by the Ducati, other brands have a simple way, gearshift up.....
Also a better timing, not the 500m stuff.. or adjustable as you like.

My list is:

Better ground clearance,
Front fork,
gear indicator.

Hyperstrada is very much OK so the list is a wish list.

Regards.

Wow! So simple and effective. Really lame that Ducati doesn't implement this. Would be so easy for them to program auto disable turn signal upon upshift.

For me, it's very much like what's been said with one addition at number 1:
1) a less finicky clutch. It took me a long time last year to find the sweet spot. Even adjusted fully within spec, I had some beginner-like stalls and awkward take offs caused by a very vague clutch feel. I finally found the magic zone that was literally a quarter turn between the rest of settings, and the rest all sucked .
2) a fuel gauge would be great, but the combination of the trip meter and low fuel light makes the lack of a gauge a nuisance rather than a problem.
3) adjustable and smoother front forks, although the stockers aren't terrible. There's a bit more "stiction" than I'd like but other than that, they're not too bad.
4) a gear indicator would be great to have for sure.

Really, Duc is losing money not offering up'd suspension and hard luggage options.

Yeah, I would hate to see them strip some of the touring ability away to make it too "S"-like. Seems like it would be easier to just offer dealer installed upgrades.

For me it's much the same:

Higher spec forks (the OHLINS Steering damper I fitted has settled the front nicely)
Fuel Gauge
Gear Indicator (I fitted the GIPro which works fine)
Adjustable clutch lever
Heated Grips as standard
