The new console on the 1260MS hands down beats the 2017 1200S. I looked at the differences between the two. My 2017 console has visibility problems in bright sunlight. When the glare from the sun hits the console while riding you cannot see the screen. The newer console changes really is a difference. It's a big difference between the two bikes and I've not test drove a 1260 model. My thoughts is upgrading my current bike if possible with the newer console. Does anyone have knowledge if this is possible buying and switching consoles? I wouldn't mind paying for the change. My thoughts is to just purchase a new console then buying a new 2020 Grand Tour when it's available. I'm very happy with my 2017MS but really like what Ducati has done with their 2020 MS Grand Tour. I'm going to own my 2017 Multistrada 1200S very shortly and love the bike. Any information from other owners will be nice to hear about this issue.
