On what basis? Power? Yes, it makes more HP. Does that make it better? No, not necessarily. HP should not always be the measuring stick!

There in lay the joke.

If you're power obsessed, I'm not sure what you're doing straddling a U.S. / Canadian market 250 or 300
in the first place.

I'm betting that the 300 will be an all round better package but not significantly so.

The strength of both versions is that they check a whole lot of boxes in the motorcycle fun experience.

Power isn't one of those boxes..
