There is no difference in any measurements between the XC and XR versions other than that the XC comes standard with bar risers, The seat to footpeg distance is identical on both bikes so there is no reason to buy one over the other based on your leg length.

:0461: I have always understood from my original investigation of the Tiger and specs, pre-purchase, that the XC seat was approximately 3cm higher than the XR and therefore often chosen by taller riders.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

The XC's seat is 3cm higher but so are its footpegs - the XC is too tall for me but if I was able to actually get onto one, the footpegs would be in the same position relative to the seat as the XR. So pick an XR if the XC is uncomfortably tall, pick either if you can get onto either.
