I just had a call from my dealer, informing me of a recall on the 2012 650, and that I can expect a letter from the factory advising me not to ride the bike until the repair is done. The recall involves the front brake switch, and the possibility of it not activating the brake light on the rear of the bike. He advised me to use both brakes, so if the front switch on the hand lever doesn't work, the switch on the rear brake pedal will activate the brake light. If he has parts in stock at the 1000 mile service, he will replace or repair it then. Just a heads up to the owners and riders of the new model.. check your switches/lights.
