XC dont have full lights, but they have a sidestand. They have SX style suspension and gearboxes.

Gearbox - close ratio. So they are sweat to ride, always a gear to choose and always on the power..... but run out of gears much earlier than the EXC.

Suspension - closed cartridge forks on XC, open cartridge on EXC.

I have an Xc 200' as Kev says closed cartridge forks and close ratio gearbox.

Mine is fully road reg with lights/brake light( thanks to Nik Nak)etc.

Great bike, gear it right and you can't go wrong.

Regards

OK another noobie question, benefits of a closed cart system over open bath?
I think it stays more constant when warm?

Anyhow they tend to be valved harsher for MX type use, open cartridge are a better bet for average enduro man. Easier to service too ;)
