I would get the SP but from what I read it's setup really hard for the track and is really hard to adjust for the street. I live in czech so lots of road variation, cobblestone, etc so that isn't going to go well.

The SP is way too tall and stiff IMO for the street. I just went through that with my SMC. You really can't have it both ways. Track or street. I don't think they missed the mark with the strada suspension for street duty. Still no complaints.

By "SP", I simply meant a high-level suspension option. They could have easily fitted a nice Ohlins kit and charged an obscene amount of money

Ah, true that! So, I'm not really convinced that anti judder springs are going to solve the unpredictable feel at the lever. Has anyone ridden the new motor yet? And the other little part updates my be important in this regard.

I Ride: Hyperstrada
Yes, I have a 2014 Hyperstrada and the clutch is BAD. I bought it new 9 months ago. The guy writing the article was very accurate in my opinion. Like one of the other guys on this thread, I also had an ST2 just prior to the Hyper, and that one could launch blisteringly fast. I have not been able to get a single reasonably quick launch with the Hyper. I've looked like an inexperienced dick every single time I've tried, and this is after riding the bike (commuting and 400km+ trips), for a total of 14000km the past 9 months. No, there is definitely something amiss with the clutch on the Hyper. (This is my 5th Ducati so I think I know what a good clutch should be like)

Possibly something is wrong with your clutch or your clutch cable? Not all of them have issues. The clutch on my '13 HS is the smoothest and best I have had on any brand. This is my third Duc, but have also had BMW, Suzuki, etc.

If I hurry the let-off, it tends to grab. If I am smooth, no problem. But in comparison, our 390 Duke will leave the line and go through the gears with much more speed and much less attention to technique. As will our SV650.

If you compare the parts lists from 2014 to 2015 you will see that the clutch basket is different too. So, not practical from a cost standpoint. IMHO the clutch can be downright dangerous until the motor is fully warmed up. I won't attempt to pull out into an intersection unless I can do it slowly. Not fun popping wheelies or stalling. Type of oil makes a difference too.

Sounds like you need to adjust your cable. Take out some free play and take it for a ride. Ive found over the 10k miles I've had to adjust mine quite a few times. It does stretch and thw clutch goes crap. But once adjusted again gear section and clutch control are great.
