The V4 base is the way to go if budget is tide (my case), also the base has a lot in electronics and performs pretty crazy well.
The V4S, the one I almost purchased, was 5K (USD) more and my good friend, Ducati specialist, racer and sales person told me this:
If you are not taking it to the track, why would you buy a V4S? no need (in my case) as I did not want to spent a lot of money and wil probably not track anymore (52 yrs of age and done that for years).

So, the BASE V4 is the way to go, its a fantastic motorcycle, I am loving it and besides all, it is not that bad in terms of comfort, except the HEAT, everything else is the best.
If the only difference was the electronics then I'd agree easily; but the fact it's an entire suspension upgrade is why I chose the V4S over the V4 base. I don't track but might do a day or 2 with this bike towards the end of the season or maybe next year.
