Anyone on here own a R3?

I'm looking at buying a 300 class bike and have talked to owners of the Ninja 300 , one owner CBR 300 but no one with a r3...
Chime in if you own any of the 300 class bikes pros cons etc.

I may take you up on that when I get (hopefully) my bonus in March. If you still have it of course.

It's a really fun little bike, but I haven't rode it that much (hence the 80 miles) it cornered really well. Can't upload pics from my phone for some reason. I told my girlfriend I was gonna sell it and now she wants to go take the class at awesome cycles

Good. It sounds like she needs motivation.

That's a heck of a deal! I would've taken up on that offer if i didnt buy my ninja 300 back in April 2015.

Op,
My first bike was a 07 ninja 650 and coming from that is a big power difference. My ninja 300 is a nice nimble bike. I love how it has that sportbike aggressive look and still be affordable. I dont race nor do i speed a lot so I was ok with the lower cc. But everynow and then i crave to just gun it if i had a bigger bike. I did went up to 100 and i was pretty close to redlining. no wobble or anything..

A big determining factor for me was if I'm able to hold the bike up. Since I'm short 5'1, i didnt have much option but to go with a smaller bike regardless. I can ride my ninja 300 no problem on stock height..although im on my tippy toe.

Thanks.
I'm not a racer either just want to get back into riding and i don't really need a big bore.
I'm also on the short side @ 5'7"
The Ninja 300 was my first choice right up untill the R3 came out.
I also like the Honda the fit was pretty good but a little tall [foot hit the tail when mounting].
