EXC 450 or 525

Recommended Posts

Ok I have a weird one here... I recently bought a very clean, low hours 2006 EXC 450. The guy I bought it from was the second owner, he had the original owners manual and spare parts books and even the nice little case you get when purchaced new. The weird thing is everything about the bike and the side cover decals say 450 but the VIN comes back as a 525. I guess I didn't pay close enough attention to the title he signed over to me but when I received my new title from the state it was identified as a 525. I realize it's easy enough to change the decals although I don't know why anyone would. It's not stolen, all numbers on the motorcycle match and a VIN check comes back good. 

So I guess I'm wondering if anyone has as ever heard of anything like this. Is it something that KTM does with their "trim" classifications? I'm going to call a dealer to see what they say but I wanted to throw it out here first.


Thank you,
