The N300 may only do 105 MPH but if it has enough "punch" up to 105, I could see it being more fun than a ZX-14 in anything but a drag race.

I largely agree with you.

I had a 400 Ninja last year ( Canadian market bike ) .

More power, higher top speed but nowhere near the soul if the 250.

Funny how that works.
