Yes, understood with your analogy about the Ducati, coils often can make an improvement.  BUT, as you recognize, not every application is the same.  IME, the stock coil is more than enough, but heck, for $30-50 you could "upgrade" it to something else, worth a shot, and see if you can actually feel any difference.

I'd be interested to know what you find out.
