Been thinking about a new RR-S but doubt it could be anywhere near as good as my 17’ 300RR (minus front forks). Don’t know about you, but I was amazed with the power delivery of this 2T. Been years since I’ve owned one (last being 01 cr250) and man have they come a long way. Motor pulls unlike any 2T I’ve ever ridden (last one I got to borrow was an 08 yz250). Almost no hit, even with power valve turned out.....but it fricken screams! Best decision I’ve made was hopping back on a smoker even though very hesitant for slippery PNW single track. I’ll keep trucking the bike up to the hills and use the TW200 for around town.....for now. Would really like to find a new leftover 2018 300rr and enjoy the brand newness!!! Got the 17’ for $7800 this last March and she’s due for top end, fork/shock maintenance and a few other niggles (needs new subframe, sprockets, chain etc). Nothing major but nearing 150hrs so maybe better to let her go for $6500 or so and pony up another $1500 for a leftover 18. Don’t trust FI 2T’s yet and for me personally, totally unnecessary with the Beta motor. Mine was jetted damn near perfect from the factory, just a tad rich which I don’t mind and oil injection has been spot on so far as I’m not going full Erzberg on the thing and an intermediate trail rider on a good day. Oh, and I’m a fan of the kickstart on my bike which I understand is now an “option” on 18’ + WTF? I used to consider electric start “optional” not the other way around lol.
