250XC vs. 250SX

What are the mechanical differences between the KTM 250XC and the KTM 250SX? I am looking at getting one or the other and cannot seem to find the actual mechanical differences between the two bikes anywhere else.


19" inch rear versus 18, bigger fuel tank and pretty sure 6 speed and/or different ratios. Ignition is tailored towards off road too. 


May be wrong in the tranny, but pretty sure.

Different cylinder head but same cylinder. Cdi is the same but the flywheel is different.   Suspension is valved differently. E start on the xc. 6 speed on the xc. Larger tank on the xc. Kickstand on the xc. 18" rear on the xc. Different tires on the xc.
