XT600 or XT600e ?

I have an XT600 of 94.
I'm not sure if it's 600e or not.
What's the difference...

As I know it, the "E" stands for electric start (no manual kick starter).

1994, with plastic cowls on the lower sides of the fuel tank, oil in frame with a plastic cover that needs to be removed to check the oil level and with the silencer as part of the rear subframe is a 600E.
Earlier Tenere models were generaly either red & white or blue & yellow.

Hi there, I'm sure that I've read somewhere that the "e" stands for europe, and identifies the later bikes made in italy, instead of japan, like the 3AJ model I own.
