The standard was the unfaired, naked bike, the Interstate had fairing, bags and trunk, and the Aspencade was the Interstate plus on-board compressor, digital dash, vented rotors and other ammenities.

If you're looking at a bike the easiest way to tell how it started life is by looking at the sticker on the steering head, GL110 for Standard, GL1100I for Interstate, and GL1100A for Aspencade.

my guess is because they are not selling body parts the "standard" in the listing is all that is necessary because most mechanical parts are the same.
