Euro GG vs. USA GG

Whats the differences between the Euro spec Gas Gas and the USA specs? In Canada, it appears we get the Euro specs as we get wiring for turn signals etc... I noticed in a brochure we dont get the FMF pipe and we can only get the EC model w/USD forks for 2001. Any other differences I should know about? THANKS!

The XCs are US models developed by GGNA. We can't get '01 ECs, so I'm told.

I am also told the "true" EC models are not available in the US. That's sad because not everybody wants to give up smooth power for a few more ponies........ That was an executive choice from GGNA..

Josh,

My local dealer said they are also supposed to be able to program the ignition in the '01 with a mellower curve and add a flywheel weight to get EC style power with XC suspension. I'm sure your dad knows more about this.

I know what your talking about. I just liked the pre-99 ec's better than what out there now... The new ones seem all about HP ratings..
