Well, one thing I can tell you that if the factory changes the connector on the Intake Air Temp sensor, the IICE Air will not fit.  Other than that it will work just fine.

Some technical notes about the new 1200 Wethead:

I haven't read any factory confirmation, but it appears to me the new 1200 will have throttle-by-wire. A throttle-by-wire system improves the throttle response of an emissions-regulated motor by not allowing the rider to control throttle movements.

The most accurate way to describe the system is that throttle-by-wire masks the rider inputs that would exhibit poor throttle response by simply not letting them happen.

Of course all of that is very different from good throttle response.
