The 1200 has its own set of problems. The more modern ECU in the 1200 runs an even more aggressive EPA/EC emissions profile. The 2 cylinders on the 1200 are operated as two different motors. Though they're operated separately, they share two things, the crankshaft and the catalyst.
The ECU on the 1200 uses control algorithms too complex to get into here. I'll just say that it's both worse and better than the 1100/1150.
