R3 takes another comparison. In my case I had the RC390 deposit down, but went with the R3 for $1500 less. And as it turns out, I think I got the better bike!

Huge review...

They rated it 10/10 for handling/suspension, while Ari from motorcycist said that the R3 was the worst bike to handle. They also mentioned the N300's vague chassis feel. I haven't heard that one before.
Maybe these are regular riders and not track oriented? Or maybe they got a tuned bike? I'm not sure why there are so many polar differences among the various reviews (also drastically different horsepower and torque numbers).
R3 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds
RC390 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds

Finally a reviewer puts up some performance numbers.
