But I know sometimes (KTM690 comes to mind) they make big changes like, I believe, a non-leading axle fork. I am not concerned about the ginormous front rotor offroad. Anyone know the details of the differences?
The triples also have less offset and the front brake is radial.

If you can get a FS for a good deal go for it, I'll trade you my 2012 FE parts.
