Can we please have this question stickied? This is the second time it's been asked today alone. Albeit the riders are different dimensions the answer doesn't really change.
Here's my response.

What I mean by that is you can easily pop the clutch on the 300 and wheelie no problem, but popping the clutch doesn't automatically mean wheelie on the 300. On a 600 when you pop the clutch you will feel it.
Personally I would recommend the 300, and frankly I never understood why anyone would start off with anything bigger? But then again that's just me, I have witnessed far to many rider error accidents simply because they were overtly confident and to new to riding while riding on a bike to big for their skill level.
