I didn't say it wasn't a new bike. It is a new bike, however it's no more bike than the old 250 was with the exception of fuel injection, which the 250 DID have in Europe.You need to do your research. Go and read what went into the 300. It's not a suped up 250, it's a new bike.
Always funny when you see someone defending their negativity so vigorously.
You have no experience with this bike. He does...end of story.

It still has conventional forks, non radial mount calipers, etc. There's nothing in the new bike a redesigned Ninja 250 wouldn't have. It has a redesigned frame, and a new set of plastics, gauges, and FI. Oh and a slipper clutch, which on a 300 I gotta ask why, not that much engine braking. The engine isn't new, it just has a new displacement and the transmission has revised gear ratios. It's the same bike, just a little different in the grand scheme of things.
As for my negativity, I'm sorry I just can't think positively about charging way more for a motorcycle than it's actually worth. You honestly think a new 300cc motorcycle is worth paying damn near $6000 or more for? I'm You're not actually getting much more than you would with the current Ninja 250R, which in turn you didn't get more than you would have with the 07 and prior gen 250.
