Exclamation Most "bang for the buck" modifications?

Greetings!
I am pretty new to the forum and just recently started considering investing in a Brutale after riding a Ducati 999s for the last 2 years.
What got me going for the Brutale is the aggressive looks, the design and also the somewhat more "comfortable" riding position than the F4 and the 999.

As the 750 has been replaced with the bigger 910 with more grunt, there are a few 750's on the market.
I wonder if you guys could recommend what the most important and cost-effective improvements the 750 will need performance-wise?

My intention is mostly to ride twisting B-roads and the occational trackday every now and then...

Truthfully. The 750 kicks ass, right out of the box. Maybe Arrow GP, Arrow Damper, but it will take you as fast as you need to go.

Cat removal...snorkel mod makes the bike insanely loud and gnarly, but gives you nothing in terms of HP...

A good rider gets my vote.

I'm not sure you can realistically expect fat power gain on the brute, and if you can it certainly would not be cheap. Put your money into smoothing out throttle first, which in my case was getting valves within spec. Mid-pipe swap has it's benefits, but extra low grunt is not really one of them, imo.

Do a search if you haven't already. There's a thread on it somewhere around here.
