Thanks to another member on this site, I learned that the Supersport has the option of a taller seat.

See attachment labeled "Screenshot 1". The tall seat adds an inch to the bike and will set you back USD 329. If you're on the shorter side, you can get a seat -0.8 inch lower than stock for the same price.

As I was perusing every item in the known universe about this bike, I also learned that some models of the SS come with the "Ducati Multimedia System." Some outlets say this comes standard with the S, others don't. In any case, according to my dealer, the system isn't released until May, price as an accessory is unknown. See attachment labeled "Screenshot 2."

Finally, I also asked about the heated grips. I was quoted a price of USD 345 which seems like nonsense. Any ideas as to what would be the advantage of Ducati heated grips vs. aftermarket ones? My understanding is that I could purchase aftermarket grips for less than USD 100. My guess is you couldn't control them from the instrument panel, but that doesn't seem worth $245.

That's all I've got for now...

Pardon my ignorance - what does the DMS do? Show notifications when you receive a call and text?
Yep - and allows you to change music tracks on the move and integrates with some sat navs.

The ducati multimedia system (DMS) is the same as the one on the multistrada and has been available for a while. Way over priced but can connect 4 bluetooth devices.

All you ever wanted to know about the operation of the Ducati Multimedia System is explained starting on page 96 of the Owner Manual.

Has anyone had anyone had any favorable experience ordering any accessories here in the US as of yet, other than going through the dealer?
I am going to be wanting to get the short seat, and just trying to figure out what will be the fastest way to do so.

Sorry, do not know if there is a difference in order times. But, I do have a suggestion specifically to the seat. My dealer anticipated possible demand for the low seat and ordered them ahead of time. I got my low seat while at the roll out party last Friday. You might ask your dealer if they already have a seat on hand. The seat for my M1200R was another matter. I had to wait three months for it. That might have been due to the R being a low production number bike.
