I am impressed with Ducati's attention to detail on these bikes. They have hidden a lot of the ugly bits, but the horn is on full display as a visual blockade to the front cylinder.

Win-win: remove the evaporation canister from behind the front black plastic trim and move horn into it's space. Re-attach trim piece and now you've hidden the horn.

The evaporation canister has two hoses. Plug off the smaller one as it connects back to the cylinder heads to recirculate fuel vapors. The larger one is a tank overflow, so just let it hang where it was, and try not to overfill the tank.

The only modification required is a slight bend to the horn mounting bracket.

Easy peasy

I would urge you to extending the overflow hose and route it all the way to the underside of the bike.

You don't want gas spilling on the hot header while filling up at a gas station....

Yes, a hose extension wouldn't be a bad idea, but after thinking further, I don't think that gas tank hose is for overflow. It's probably a gas tank vent hose. Look at your existing hose location, it's not "draining" below the engine.

Being a UK bike, mine hasn't got a charcoal cannister (I think the 2017 ones might though). So perhaps there is a bit of space under that cowl to fit a bigger, better horn. The OEM horn is about as much good as a wasp in a jam jar! :angry6:

The oem horn is an embarassing excuse for warning device, Ducati should be ashamed of themselves. A friend has just fitted a 105 DBA Zodiac custom horn UNIVERSAL 12 VOLT HORN to his Icon and reports much improved performance. For myself I am quite content love the horn in its current position, and will shortly carry out a similar upgrade.
