I have an ex500 (Ninja 500) that has a claimed 59 HP and weighs about 440 lbs (7.46 lbs/HP). The Ninja 300 has a 39 HP and weighs about 380 lbs from what I can find on the internet (9.74 lbs/HP). So, acceleration wise it may not be as quick as the old 500, but it will probably out handle it anywhere with curves due to the 60 fewer pounds and much improved suspension.
All in all, I think this is going to be just as big of a success for Kawasaki as the 250 (as long as cost doesn't hinder people from buying it).
