...what else is there?
Besides gear indicator there is a trip computer that gives fuel mileage and a speedo that can change from Miles to KM.
-Slightly more power
-slightly smaller gas tank
-slightly better mileage ( my range on my 12 is the same as it was on my 2006)
-better braking (Apparantly ABS is better than previous versions but I didn't have on my 2006 and can't comment.)
-slightly better seat stock
-less buffeting stock (but many still modify things to improve.)
-redline at 10,000 on 2012 instead of 10,500
-less engine noise
-noticeably more torque almost everywhere (at least I noticed it.)
-feeling of better fit and finish and overall more quality (Subjective)
-looks slightly less ugly than before. Some misguided spectators seem to like the look and sometimes will say "good looking bike"
These are some quick thoughts. I am sure there is lots more.
