Why i ask are the XC-W's so much cheaper than the EXC,s? What av i missed? Performance/bling or what?
cheers for that bud glad someone knows what there on about. xcf-w and the exc-f have totaly diferent gearboxes as explained to me at the dealers, agree motor is the same however,250 XCF-W is exactly same motor, gearbox suspension as the 250 EXC-F. Silencer is straight through on the XCF-W and jetted to suit. XCF-W has a simple loom with just on/off light switch, no main beam or brake lights or horn.
250 XCF has an SX motor and gearbox, but with electric start. Suspension is SX as well. Gearbox is close ratio. It comes with a sidestand and no lights but you can plug the XCF-W lights into it.
Similar story with the 450. EXCF-W is basically an EXC-R, XCF is an SXF with a sidestand.
That top photo is the RFS engined 250 EXC Racing, a totally different beast.... well, not a beast at all. No good if you have thick skin on your rice pudding cos it cant pull it off
