I've always liked the smaller bikes. The biggest bike I've ever had is the 675 cc Triumph I have now. I've had 50cc, 100cc, 125cc, 150cc 185cc, 250, 300, 500, 650, and no ccs with an electric motorcycle (I've lost count but I think it's 18 motorcycles and scooters, but only ever 4 at one time). It's the weight I mostly do not like. You may not notice it so much while riding, but I notice it moving the bike around my garage. The 300r is fine at 376 lbs. although it is still 25 lbs. too heavy. A new rider can make slow speed mistakes like backing out or a parking space, stopping on a hill and losing balance a little, or a slow speed turn without feathering the clutch properly and still keep the lighter bike up. Low seat ht. helps too although they have increased the seat ht. on the 300.
I'm headed over to Woods Cycle Country to look...just LOOK at the white bike.
