I have a hard time picking out a 300 when I walk into a dealership. Looks very close to a SS bike until you take in the details.

I would say that your friends with the larger bikes will be amazed at the pace you can hold in the twisties. Sure they will be able to get tickets in the straights, but anyone with a large displacement bike can go straight fast. That doesn't require as much skill as holding your own in the curves.
