Ummm..:smirk:...I believe what someone was trying to tell you is that maybe you would want a 200XC-w over a 200XC maybe...:prof: I'm not familiar with the ECW model but I'm thinking someone got their letters a little mixed up??

The "W" on any KTM model means it comes with a wide ratio gearbox.:smirk:

Okee-dokee but I've never heard of the KTM's being renamed just because of where it's headed from the mfg. If you could find anything on the "ECW" model I would realy like to check it out because I've not heard of this??:smirk:

I own an 250EXC but never heard of the ECW. That's what I was curious about since I thought I knew the models.

The USA does in fact have some restrictive laws, that's why we get the XC and XC-W models, they are considered off-road competition model by our EPA. The rest of the world does not have these kind of restrictions, so the XC-W get's lights and is sold as an EXC to the rest of the world. In some markets, it does come with different jetting and a catalytic converter and is sold as a street legal bike. The base bike, engine tune, tranny ratios, suspension settings are the same.

Back to your original post, I've never heard of an ECW model.

But, the U.S. EXC was the XC-W until 2006. MXC was more equal to the XC.
