You also have to factor in the size of the underseat storage and what value it has to you when you are comparing big vs small wheel scooters.

When the temp starts dropping, wide is not such a bad thing. I wonder if KYMCO will bother sending it to the states as it does not seem their last crop of 300's were big sellers.

Motorcycle Daily says it was a "pretty big guy". Might be a typo, probably meant, "pretty big lie ". If correct, we don't need no stinking cbr300 with an 87 mph 150 in town.

Motorcycle Daily reports that a person connected with Yamaha stated that one of the testers hit 87 mph indicated. Call me skeptical but I'm guessing that's about 20 mph optimistic.

Always taking a chance on a new model. If it proves reliable over time maybe but if it's priced near the Honda, I'd go with the CBR. If it comes in substantially below the Honda I'd take a look.

I think they are beating the big four to the punch with this one with an affordable, low displacement, bag friendly ADV bike. Honda should follow with an ADV bike based on their CBR 300 single.

I found the Elite excelled in low speed maneuverability while capable of reaching a somewhat frantic 75mph. 75 is at the worst average for a 250. Sure it's no sport bike but it's not supposed to be.
