    my little single banger (S40) is a 650cc I love it, enough power to overtake when on the Highway , my friends Honda 300cc couldn't, it had no extra go at 100kph
    other friends started on a MT07 (660cc ??) and love them

    depends on what your riding intentions are, i covert my friends CBR500R and Ninja 650 which are both LAMS approved

    Highly recommend - got one to sell, if you're interested as I went from the v twin to a triple after getting 6F. Still prefer the vtwin sound if I'm honest.

    really on a 300 at 100kph couldnt go faster? fat bastard id get a ninja 400 over those 2 or even the Z400 but thats just me (faster and ligher than your old POS cruiser with better brakes and ok suspension especially for road riding) save some coin too, bargains. then get some good gear-- take you years to reach the 400's limits
