I think the issue primarily existed with the first edition SXs (2011-2013) where due to a weak spring and the angle of the stand where if you were not careful when parking, the bike could roll off the side stand.  I believe it was resolved by Kawasaki with the 2014s models (MEF) onwards.  I'm not aware of anyone with a 14 or later that has had it roll off the stand - though as with any bike on a side stand common sense applies - ie leave it in gear and pointing uphill.

I've got the kawasaki ones I hope I can never and were that side of your question.

On the 2017 and presumably 2018 there are 2 Aux connections wired into the bike on the left hand front fairing with 2 spare ways in the fuse box (marked as grips and Aux) you just need to put in the 2 spare fuses to liven the circuits.

For safety and comfort you want fender extender (less crap being thrown at the downpipes and less stone chips)
Rad guard (no stones puncturing the radiator leaving you stuck at the road side and an expensive part to replace)
Heated grips (not the kawasaki ones because they are over priced, try Oxford. Nice warm hands for cold weather riding)
Crash protectors, (more for slow speed spills or losing balance when stationary, will save the cost of new plastic)
Tank pad, to stop the tank being scratched by zips and "belly"  rub
Headlight protectors, better to pay £20 for replacement protector or cracked by stone chip than buy a new Headlight unit for a few hundred pounds.
Thanks Scotty001.
About crash protectors. The ones which Kawasaki offer are significant cheaper from R&G (almost twice). Are they any good or just look at Puig or RG?
Probably that question also was there. Is there any connection ready for heated grips, or I need to wire it up to battery, and ignition?
I had Oxford hotgrips on my Varadero before, and I really liked it. So probably that will be one of the comfort mods :-)
