As I understand it they changed the design of the ring at the failure point, which I believe is where the wires come into it. It's a completely new part. I'm the first person on the books next Tuesday to get the new ring; they have about 50 in stock right now and the line is forming for them.
In the end, I really think this is another case of adding features for features sake. They could have kept complexity and cost down by sticking with the tried and true standard key and ignition system. In cars I get stuff like this, but 4 guys can still throw the bike in a van and be gone in 30 seconds, and no EWS ring is going to keep that from happening.
