My experience with the 300 vs. my son's 2012 250 Ninja, (and his opinion too), is that the 300 totally blows the N250 away in every catagory. Since the tests between theN250/CBR250, IMO was just about a draw, with my preference going Ninja anyway for higher top end power, I'd say it wouldn't be a fair comparison. Add the tuner and just forget about it.
Navin what's the comparison of the 2 on the interstate, your sons 250 and your 300? (hopefully you haven't gotten sick of that question already) I know even the 250's are fully capable. But I'd also like to use it to do some traveling, serious traveling. Yeah I know there are better things but dang if I didn't love my 250, it just didn't run 70-75 (verified not speedo) easily enough on the interstate. My KLR likes 70-72 if the 300 will do that comfortably, I think it might have to pick one up. Does the 300 "settle in" at cruising speeds significantly better than the 250?
