Considering that it's only 300 ccs, I don't think the consequences would be too bad because most beginners aren't getting into a shift caused high side situation for awhile. If they do, it'll likely be from snapping the throttle shut in a turn when the back end gets loose.

I've owned and ridden both, but I never wanted to 'get used to a bad habit' so I treat each bike like there's no slipper. To be honest I've never felt one slip, but maybe that's just because it's so seamless it's not noticeable.

For me if I am bike shopping it's a non-issue.
