Ummm, yeah, it's an XC.

For '13 they used the same tank decals as the roadie, obviously to streamline production. If this is a '12 perhaps it was late in the production year and got a roadie tank without the XC moniker. In place they added the side panel under the tank with the XC designation behind the embossed '800'. If this one has niether it's probably just a 'tweener.

The tires will run like shite on the road, go back to 'trails or some Anakee 3's.

Excellent bike though. IMOH anything under $11G's is a decent buy. It already has a factory sump guard and engine guards - about $400 worth. Factory warranty, just barely broken in.

The handguards are probably missing from a tip over and broke one or both, just took them off. A pair of barkbusters are in order anyway.
