Lowering kit for S1000XR

Is there a kit to lower the XR by about an inch or inch and a half? I like the XR but it's about 1.5 8nches too tall. I know there's a factory low model but a 2018 is out of my price range so I'm looking at a leftover 2016 demo.

I thought you said that it was an ugly bike, and that you were looking at a Kawasaki

It is ugly, profile looks OK but im not thrilled with the looks of the front end and I am looking at a Kawasaki but I have a line on a leftover 2016 XR for 15500 so that puts it in play.

I took a Tuono out for a spin and the riding position is still to aggressive for me, to much lean forward and the pegs are too high. I'd need to add risers and lower the pegs and I don't know if those mod's would make the bike comfortable enough for me to ride.
