I guess I'm missing something because I thought the success of the Ninja 250 was as a beginner bike for 14-16 year olds who can be legally licensed to ride a 250 or smaller in the US, but can't ride a bigger displacement till after 16.
Isn't that the core market for the 250cc bikes and wouldn't a 300cc bike be completely cut out of that? I'm not saying the 300cc wouldn't be a better bike, I just don't understand the target market. I suppose there are those older than 16 as new riders that would go for the slightly larger 300cc.
