It would be from the 2010 - 2011 Duke R model, which was 690 cc. The standard Duke used the 654 cc engine.
For 2012 the Duke maintains the 690 cc, but it has a different head with dual plugs as well as other differences.

There's no grab handles.

Some of the KTM hard parts accessories will not likely fit the 2012 bike.
The touring screen for example.
When does KTM usually release the updated hard parts catalogue?

After starting the bike and removing the temp jumper this is what I found:

a steady 6 amps flowing at idel or up in the revs.
6amps x 12 volts = 72 watts.

Call it 80w just to be safe and you have about 145w to play with for everything else. Hope this info is helpfull to others.
I'm happy to report that I've added heated grips and a heated Gerbings jacket liner and been able to run both on high simultaneously with the stock stator on my 2010. I measured the voltage at the battery while idling, and it was over 14 volts, and I've run several hours now with no problems...

As one new to KTM but eagerly awaiting the new model here in the US, i am unfortunately ignorant of the details on this issue. Could you explain a bit?
What was the last year of the true "R"? And what were its difference with the 2012?

The E was the 2008 model. 2009-2011 had the R model. The 2012 R has the engine from the 2010 Duke R, the headlight is from 2009-11 enduro R, the dash looks like the 2008 E, the suspension specs are from the 2008 E.
You would need to search the model years for specifics.
I read the entire 2012 owners manual today and there appears to be some other small differences. That's why RR is checking all of their bits for proper fitment.

2012 is the new 2008 or old SMC-R

I too thought of that or KTM said "Lets just save some ca$h take a 690 Super Moto SMC-R put some enduro plastic on and call it done, Damn Yanks will never know the difference." The specs are almost the same. In fact after looking at them side by side on the KTM web site the only difference between the two is the wheels,front fender and decals. Would not be surprised to see a mid year model change back to 275mm travel shocks or a whole new bike thats not quite ready yet for prime time. Just an idea. Hmmmm?

I like the apparent fact that after trashing the plastic on a 2010, I can put the new 2012 plastic on and give it a facelift.

There's nothing wrong with the new bike a few suspension tweaks can't remedy. Someone mentioned the development of a raising link a few weeks ago. It's a start...

I'm ahead of you brother. I've already begun the process but it's gonna cost a nice penny. The internals are totaly different. I'm told by a big name in the industry the rear shock is going to need a new shock body and the front a new set of tubes. It's my understanding they can't just change out the spacers and other guts etc. I was told a custom Ohlins set up would be a cheaper option than a factory WP set $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I could be wrong but the raising link does that and only that. I don't think it will give you any more travel, just lift.

I'm waiting on more info from them.

Intake Air Temperature Sensor Fault

I've been getting an intermittent FI flash code indicating problems with the IAT sensor (votage high). In searching around I have seen that others have had issues with both the wiring and the sensor itself. I have recently had the airbox off so may have done something at the time.

What are the impacts of running with a dodgy reading?

Can anyone give some tips on how to test whether it's the wiring or the sensor?

Can anyone help with the best way to fix up the issue in either case? (Replace wiring loom or just splice? new plug? longer wires? replace sesnor or is there an alternate?)

Cheers

Steve

At the Bangkok motorsports show they had a 2012 R and the headlight looked like the old 2008 E. A bigger/deeper 65 watt halogen. Of course if you're mixing and matching, the Thai bikes may not be the same.
The rep there said the gauge was the same as the 2008 E and it hadn't been fixed yet, but I don't know how he would have known that. I did like the looks of the 08's gauge though mine never lasted more than a month or so....

I've been in lust with all 3 bikes KTM puts the 690 power plant in since it first came out. I haven't read this entire thread yet but, will eventually. Does anyone know what kind of longevity to expect from the 690 & how many miles can you safely go before a rebuild? How many 690s have racked up 50,000 miles? I know the 690 isn't a cruiser but, I'm too cheap to plunk down $10,000 on a bike that isn't going to last me several years of service. I LOVE KTMs though & my 450 exc is my favortie bike I've ever owned.

The E has been produced in 2009/10, too, but it never crossed the pond to USA.
The headlight of the 2012 "low-legged-orange-framed" R is the same of the E model.
