I have a 2007 Kawasaki 650R, but this new 300R Ninja seems very interesting to me. I read one article comparing the 300R to two stroke 250cc supersport machines that dominated the race tracks not too many years ago. I don't think the 300R could beat the 650R in the 0-60, quarter mile, roll on power, top speed, but it must be a quick bike because of its light weight. I keep reading how fun the 250R Ninja and now the 300R Ninja are to ride. I once had a Yamaha RD 400 two stroke between 1980-1983, and it only weighed 350 pounds dry, but it was super quick, and it has always to this day been my favourite bike. I just wonder how fun this new 300R is to ride.
