Instead of adding a clock (which has to be adjusted), inaccurate or at least questionable ambient temperature indicating displays and all of the other wiz-bang things bikes seem to getting these days ... more and more each new model iteration, I wonder of manufacturers would ever consider offering a very basic model of certain bikes - ADV being the most likely category, with absolutely nothing extra beyond what DOT regulations required; speedometer, lights, etc.
Some of us may actually prefer less complexity and a corresponding less price. All that being said, I'm not holding my breath.
