May be you haven't seen all the discussions about the electrical problems causing not starting. Here is a thread from August 2012.
Sparatic no start

I'd love to see even anecdotal evidence that the problem is only with the early year Brevia/Norges.
My '08 Norge never exhibited this problem. I did install the mod about six months before I sold the bike though, just because it seemed like a good idea and it was really simple. It was a very reliable machine. Never a problem in two years and 14k miles.
