Curious if anyone knows what else will be upgraded on the R3 over the R25.

Or will it simply be the 300cc version of the R25? Kind of like how the CBR300 is to the CBR250.

They haven't announce anything official but it's probably like the CBR250 to CBR300 or Ninja 250R to Ninja 300. More power, different in product being put together on the bike, and so fourth. (The usual)

So will it look any different other than the badge? Seems to me that the two bikes will be identical except for the engine in them. Is there anything that would be offered on one that would not on the other?

theres still the possibility that the R3 is a three cylinder and not 300cc. So that could differ;)
Totally forgot about that, you might be right. A 3 cylinder will be nice to have. Always loved how the FZ-09's triple sounded, we need something like that on a lower end bike

If it comes to USA then the R25 would probably gear toward more of the 250cc racing class and competing against Ninja 250R and CBR250. While the 300cc R3 would be more of a starter bike competing against Ninja 300, CBR300, and RC390.

Seems like they want to cut costs where ever they can while still making a great bike, wouldn't be surprised if it won't be a new engine. As long as it performs good wont mind.
