Two features I could see being very persuasive on a new Boxer (whichever way it's cooled) are variable cam timing and traction control.

Cam timing could be a huge benefit for those looking for enhanced torque in lower ranges without sacrificing upper end (like Lennie's sprockets). Though the sprockets are a great mod, they're mechanical and don't adapt during use.

Traction control could be useful so we keep the big lug upright when things get slippery. Yeah, I guess I'm a little old school but having ABS save my bacon a few times I could see a (hopefully) version which doesn't burden the bike with excess weight or complexity.
