I really like the R1S and I can't wait to receive it, but if I could add two more options, they would be:

1) Gear tunnel
2) Max pack battery

I know they are not technically feasible on the R1S, but it sure would have been wonderful to have.

I'm sure they'll have a longer range battery. It's just not in the foreseeable future. If we're looking at their announcements over the last few months, when they introduced their dual motor and standard battery, those are pushed out til 2024. And that's a pretty aggressive schedule - which i don't know if they'll be able to hit. I guess that's in a perfect world. When i spoke to a rep about my R1S, I figured I'd rather have one now than wait a few years for 70+ miles of range? IF it comes out. I'll take the extra charge.
My thoughts exactly. Thanks.

I would think even if they did offer these on the R1S they would be mutually exclusive.

As the R1S is shorter you would need the space with the gear tunnel for the max battery pack.

I think the one change I would like to see in the R1S model so far from what I've seen is the third row being a bit further back to allow for more legroom. It seems a bit tight from videos I've seen and my teenage sons probably won't fit back there like I hoped.
If I have to pick between my 2 wishes, I would the Max pack battery.

I also like your enhancement idea. The 3rd row seating legroom is definitely tight and could use more room.
