Anything else is optional but I would consider these mandatory.
That's quite harsh. Air filter? Slip-on? Tune?

Our bikes don't suck that bad...

I would agree with the rest on the throttle spacers. Just start off with the fitting and ergos first to get comfortable. Maybe adjustable rearsets. Thicker grips (progrips 717) and set the sag front and rear.

Beyond that, you'll slowly want to start adding power and aesthetic carbon + titanium to suit your taste and needs.

The must have mod is suspension setup for your weight and riding style make sure you get it done on delivery of your bike - just like we have found out it's FREE !!!

Harsh? No. Our bikes were designed to have maximum performance and then they are fitted with restrictive intake and exhaust for government reasons. If there were no emission regulations what do you think a panigale would look/sound like? I assure you it would suck a lot more air and blow a lot more exhaust.

Mine runs so bad below 4k rpm i'm not even riding it until I get the above mentioned items installed. My Tuono ran like shit from the factory too. Its not exclusive to Ducati but rather synonymous with V twin sport bikes.... in my experience.

Throttle spacer and tank grip. That's it. Everything else is a waste of money

While I agree that the bike doesn't need much, I feel like calling everything "else a waste of money" is relative to the user. You might feel that way, but for some (myself included), adjustable rearsets are a must. For me, tuning was a close second.

My 2 biggest mods that made the bike a lot better. Throttle spacers and Rapidbike. Spacers took out the annoying play. Rapidbike made the bike a lot smoother while cruising.

Other stuff I did was heat take under the seat,frame covers for heat and Termi's. But the one's listed above were the best for me on riding.

I Ride: (2016) 1299 S (Akra slip on) Tuneboy tune, H2O radiator set, Ducabike rearsets
For commuting (in hotter area's), maybe once in while stop and go traffic, I would like to advice a decent radiator set to keep the temperature of the cooling water a bit down.

There are nice sets out there:
MACRadiator 35 mm (needs more modification) or H2O radiators (nearly plug and play)
