My '15 Multistrada is a slow starter, but I haven't changed anything on it yet.
My 1299S also chugs a bit with the OEM battery, so I replaced it with a Shorai and it cranks up much quicker.
My Aprilia Tuono also struggled and it was known for having stator and grounding issues. I put a Shorai battery and a set of the MotoElectric cables on it and it spins up and starts much faster.
I had a Shorai battery in my KTM 300XCW that I didn't touch for 3 years, no trickle charger of anything. When I decided to sell it, I figured I had to make sure it was still running nicely. It fired right up off the battery with the second touch of the starter button.
At some point I will replace the Multistrada battery with a Shorai.
