I ended up wanting more, not necessarily more power, but just more possibilities. I wanted to be able to carry more things with me and there wasn't really a good setup for any of the smaller bikes. For the FZ6 I was able to get a whole givi setup. I wanted fuel injection. I wanted a slightly (physically) larger bike for more comfort. I'm a bigger guy and with the bigger engine bike, I'm not getting that much worse MPG vs. the 250.
The FZ6 has way more power than I will ever need, if Yamaha made a smaller engine FZ, say an FZ4.5, I probably would have considered it, but in America they don't really make anything in between.
