    Looking to buy a 15 310r

    Looking at buying a new 15 310r selling my 12 300x to my buddy. Is the R much faster? Basically it's the same ski from what I've read.Pro's? Con's?

    In stock Form, the '15 310R will be quicker but not faster. The 310R is a great looking Ski and I think an upgrade from the 300 series Ultras. JB

    Not a whole lot faster, but it has a knock sensor, racing steering, the 310r seats, etc. The only con I can think of the 310 has vs a 300 is it has a 56 gal. Storage vs the 300x's 60 gal. Storage.

    The R has MX style handle bars.. But they are not adjustable on the move like the 310x.
    That was the main thing turned me off buying the R... And there was a bit too much green for my liking.. Clashes with the Honda bikes in my garage

    The 300x its a well engineered ski. 310R does have some improvements ie ride handling, engine improvements, etc and I am very happy with my purchase.

    Imo you can't go wrong owning either one.
