Hi all,

Will be looking at new GTS300 tomorrow but wondered what the main difference would be between the 250 (would be pre-owned) & 300 in terms of performance (especially 2 up). Just wondering whether its worth paying 4k for the 300 or probably less than half that for a decent 250?

The dealer is offering a lifetime warranty on the 300 too..

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers

Rob

If it's a genuine lifetime warranty i'd go for the brand new one.
But saying that, i got a brand new anyway. it's only ever been ridden by me, i know all whats happened and so on in it's history.
If you can afford it go new. ;)

The 250 has a really nice half analog/half digital dash which I love. Both the 300 (actually a 278cc) and the 250 (244cc) actually make the same 22 hp. Only difference is that the '300' produces more torque which makes it a better choice of the two merging onto traffic.

Having said that, if you can get a good condition 250, I would go for it. The brand 'new' 300s do come with ABS which all the older models (both 300/250) don't.
