My suggestions are all immediately feasible - no new tooling required! Doubt that they will happen because all would likely reduce the average sales price...

1. Make ABS an option without having to buy XM and GPS. I'd definitely buy ABS, but not if I have to buy XM and GPS as part of the deal.
2. Make radio and intercom an option. I've been Bluetooth for both for years. Truth be known, I probably paid over $1,000 for the radio and intercom on my 2013 1800 and have never turned either of them on! (Don't even know how.)
3. Make factory seat an option. I'd rather spend the dollars saved on something proven to be much more comfortable for the long haul.

1988 GL-1500 (gone but not forgotten)
1975 CB-400F (long gone but fondly remembered)
1970ish Kawasaki 90 (just plain long gone)
1965 Cushman Super Eagle (long gone and thankfully forgotten)
1957 Sears MoPed (long gone, but some good 'first bike' memories)
