you may be thinking of the 250R replacement, the ninja 300 it's the one that recently got FI & optional ABS in all markets, where the 250R had FI pretty much everywhere but in the USA for the past few years.

The difference is the color. Don't want the black/silver or black/green. Not liking the color combo has been what has held me from pulling the trigger since they came out in 2011. Im NOT going to drop $10K + on anything and wish it was something different. I'm REALLY digging the white/black (AND, it has ALL black frame/swing arm/etc that no other N1K has had to this point). And I do not want a bike with ABS.

Great bike? Maybe... all of my European friends who have ridden it have declared (and I quote) "one of the worst bikes ever." MCN seems to agree:

Owners love their Yamaha BT1100 Bulldogs. Everyone else hates em. Depending on your point of view the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog is either a relaxing, better-braked alternative to a cruiser, rather like a Japanese version of a Moto Guzzi Breva (that wont break down), or its an ill-handling, gutless chump of a thing that would sooner dump you on your backside than take a right-hander with any kind of vigour.

Read the comments under that MCN review.

Or any other review.

The value of those bikes on the used market (at least here) has
gone up in the past years.

True, I have a friend that had one and said the bloody thing was always trying to kill him it handled so bad. And that was in a straight line .

I want that 1100 Honda, red & white, with the Mugen quarter fairing. So far only home market & Oz/Nz.

The euro cb1300 Bol 'd Or also red/white, would do almost as well.

My back would hate me, my neck probably won't let me look up enough to see and my knees and hip would throw tantrums. But it sure is sexy.



Did I mention Ferrari helped design the engine?
