More amazing, in my opinion is that the Ninja 300 comes with a slipper clutch.

Forgot about that. Added.

How is it that a Ninja 300 comes with a slipper clutch, but our 675's didn't?

^This! Im also glad they redesigned the speedometer as the previous ones looked tacky and out of date with the styling of the bike.

About time they brought back the 636, great engine.

For the 300 awesome to see they are updating it, though the 250 is still and always will be a classic, but a slipper clutch? really? Seems pointless to me.

Well, there are slipper clutches and slipper clutches.

We'll have to wait and see if this is An Actual Real Worthwhile Slipper Clutch, or one of those Half Arsed Marketing Ploy Not Very Good Slipper Clutches.

THIS. I'm really excited about an update to the 250, but mostly excited that it will have FI. I'm pretty sure this will be my next bike -- something economical and comfortable for commuting, and that I can thrash occasionally without going to jail. I'll be looking for a used one in a year or two.

Let's just say I like to change bikes...
