Alone we go faster, together we go further

I do not ride fast, I ride far / I'm not lost, I'm just exploring

It will be easier (cheaper) to buy one base model and do it yourself  VCIF_ThumbUp

Which is what I have ended up doing. Just waiting to fit a camel auxiliary fuel tank to the bike.

I like the idea of buying the model then modifying the bike to your specs. My AT is 95% there now.
