Some of those features would be nice and almost a 'Must Do' to keep an edge or keep up with the competition.
The Ducati Panigale currently has the quick shifter and auto blipper downshift, so it's logical to start putting this on other Ducati models.
The GPS is nice, but having dealt with an OEM GPS on my old Goldwing, it soon became several steps behind what was available from cheaper standalone GPS's, plus they need to really get the Bluetooth stuff sorted.
The steering damper would also be a great addition, likewise this is currently on the 1299.
Good stuff, but probably not enough to make me think about trading up...
But it certainly sounds like the right direction.
