I've ridden the 250r a lot side by side with my 600. The 600 was nice but insurance was pretty spendy. My 300 will be less then 250 for the year full coverage. I went to the dealership to get a 250 but found out about the 300. They had a few leftover 250s but the 300 with FI was better in my mind.Welcome! Let us know what you think on your new 300 as a guy coming from a 600.
