No track fairings?I'm no expert, but I bought a 2019 V4 based model for track use only (not racing), and made the mods I wanted. And I could not be happier with the bike.
From what's been shared in the preliminary reviews, the 2020s are "better/smoother/faster" but personally I like the violent aggressive power delivery of the 2018/2019s... and the torque of the 1,103cc engine.
That said, modifications add up. Here's the running list of mine, showing total costs (tax included). The mods rated by importance on the track, I would say: 1) radiator guard!, 2) stompgrip, 3) race seat, 4) shock, 5) forks, 6) tall windscreen, and 7) forged wheels.
I think you cannot go wrong with any of these V4s, but this was my solution.

Exhaust in the future?
For me, I would only track as well. I dont want S mainly because of the electronic suspension. Your Ohlins are better than R ones (I think). I like R package as track weapon but not the price.
I believe 2020 new fairings, black subframe, and electronic aid adjustment is good thing.
