As someone who rides year-round in New York, I can say that I enjoy the undertail in the winter months!
The weight and placement is significant, though, even on the road. Please, let's not compare a street bike to a MotoGP bike. If they think the need the exhaust volume and running one pipe undertail gets them there, they can mitigate the negative effects with lots of unobtainium and money. They're not running steel exhausts designed to be cost effective while lasting many thousand road miles.
As far as offering an undertail as an option, it's possible but probably not practical. More parts to test, produce and stock and. Then you've got a mod which goes against the mass-centralization engineering and might actually lessen performance. Best left to the aftermarket.
