MEET THE RIVALS
Yamaha YZF-R3 £5295, 41bhp, 169kg. The R3 is a genuine small sportsbike.
Honda CBR300R £3999, 30bhp, 164kg. A mini Fireblade, the CBR300R looks great.
Kawasaki Ninja 300 £4899, 38.5bhp, 174kg. You need to rev this one to get the best from it.
KTM RC390 £5099, 44bhp, 147kg. KTM’S RC390 is the racer of this class. Not cheap though.
