model summary
The EC was the first version of the GS series to offer a  higher equipment level over the standard model and was a handsome beast! The EC (known as simply the E outside the US) was sold as the standard model in some markets outside the US (UK, NZ for example) and differed from the US version in having a flat seat with a trim strip along the bottom. The US market version had a stepped seat (with trim strip) and different paint and striping.
