Is this the new fly-by-wire system used in Duke?

My local dealer said he would have details on the changes in about a week, he also said that likely not much is different.

KTM 690 Enduro 2014 model

Overall, the bike looked same as previous, but closer inspection noted the following:
1,ABS added front & rear
2.Twin-plug 690 Duke motor fitted.
3.Lower fork changed to allow fitment of ABS sensor.
4.New electronic throttle from Duke 690, and new throttle/front brake cluster.
5.Frame looked the same, apart from repositioned rear brake reservoir, and coil removed to as 690 Duke motor has twin-plug head, with inboard coils.
6.Forks changed to left leg compression damping, right leg rebound damping.
7.New airbox, with repositioned sensors.
8.New ECU, only 1 fitted now.

sweet specs. still no ADV version to be found?
guess companies making ADV kits for this bike can breathe easier again another year.
the 390 ADV is gonna pop up somewhere in the next 10 between Intermot and Eicma.

I couldnt care less about the fancy stuff Amd what business does abs have on a dirt bike! I just like the black and white plastics, graphics and instrument cluster. I really dont like the orange plastics on my bike. Why did ktm have to pick orange?...

The white plastic does look good, the less orange on the the better they usually look. I keep looking at the parts fiche to see if it's out to check on the gearing, nothing yet. I was hoping for a new instrument cluster but it looks like the same one with a different tach background.
ABS? it's a dualsport. Seems like unnecessary weight to me....... but KTM does classify it in their street line.
Following normal timelines we should see one in the US about late April or May.

ABS is mandatory on all motorbikes as from 2016 anyway.

As long as the ABS is switchable I have no issue but the off road ABS from the 1190 ADV would be nice :)
I notice the weight with ABS is the same which is great. Am very tempted as the Duke engine is very sweet.

Where are you guys seeing ABS on this bike? I'm not seeing sensor rings on either brake rotor and there's no mention of it on the spec sheet.

Look closer, on the backwheel for example the sensor ring is on the black inner part of the brake disk.
