Well... Honda has a reputation of not listening to its (potential) custommers, so I wouldn't put money on that one...

For the Q of replacing suspension vv costs...

I did the trick on the Varadero and the job on the CT doesn't look to much alien from the XL1000V:

- Fully adjustable rear shock unit + 2 progressive front fork springs incl oil / labour 1.100,- incl 21% VAT.

Prices elsewhere on the planet must be cheaper than where I live (The Netherlands - the far most expensive country in Europe...)

Just to give you an idea.
