XT or XA?

Suzuki calls the wire spoked model a DL1000XT on both their website and in their 2018 product brochure, but on the paperwork for my bike from the dealer I bought it from, its listed as a DL1000XA. You can also find lot things on Google where it's also listed as a DL1000XA.

So I guess both are acceptable, and I have been referring to mine as a DL1000XA.

2018 black DL1000XA with Arrow header, Holeshot slip-on, mag rims w/silver rim tape, Custom Lamm seat, Aprilia Tuono mirrors, V-Stream sport screen, Givi hugger, Cox radiator guard and lots of custom parts and mods

2007 Suzuki Candy Sonoma Red naked Bandit 1250S/AK7.

The way I see it is V-Strom XT is the model and 1000 is the approximate engine size. The non XT model is referred to as the DL1000A, "A" meaning with ABS. The XT model gets the "X" added to be referred to as a DL1000XA.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
