No difference that I'm aware of, same bike.

W indicates the '98 model, X indicates the '99 model.

Re: difference between RRW & RRX

As 'bladerunner says, exactly the same.
The carby blades might look very similar, but had quite a lot of differences to the chassis parts during its model run. The frame itself is different on the W/X, so specials builders, beware. Allthe engines are basically interchangeable, but the best of the bunch are the W/X's, electronics have some subtle and not so subtle differences too. Even things like shock link triangles differ, as I have found out to my annoyance!

Re: difference between RRW & RRX

RRW/X is the best out the box, but it's a PITA to fit a 17" front, the rear shock is possibly the worst of the bunch, and there are some other small differences that mean modernising it is significantly trickier than the RRT-RRV.

I preferred my old RRT to my current RRW even though the RRT was a shed. A new shock might even the balance
