You kept riding even after the check engine light came on??? Don't tell the dealership- they could deny a warranty claim based on that fact.
The radiator on the 2012 EX650 is bigger than on the previous models so you really shouldn't have experienced an over-heat unless, as has been mentioned earlier, you have a defective cooling fan, thermostat, or the dealer failed to properly fill your cooling system. But since you say that there was still coolant in the overflow reservoir, albeit below the low line, it's more likely that the cooling system was properly filled but you lost some coolant due to the overheat.
Hopefully no serious damage, but hard to know for sure without doing, at the bare minimum a compression test.
Good luck! Next time you get a check engine light, ffs STOP your engine!
