After my riding buddy got a 14 300 XCW I decided I need one as well. My local dealer (3 hours away) is getting 1 XCW 300 and 6 300 XCW six days. He stated that the six days model are 1000 more, so 8600 vs 9600 approximately. From what I could tell the biggest difference was the closed cartridge fork... I love all the other little bits (Black wheels, pipe guard, skid plate, etc) but am not sure if it's worth 1000 over the standard model. Hard finding any information on the six days models but it appears the Husabergs come with the same fork as the six day model and is well liked. It seems like its slightly more plush but bottoms out quicker than the closed cartridge on the standard ktm 300 according to this review http://www.dirtrider.com/features/141_1201_300_reasons_ktm_husaberg/ I'm not sure which way to go here and would appreciate any input!
