I have a se300 factory and sef250 factory, love them both! Each has its own strengths, are very different, but with the same ergonomics. I've been riding 2 strokes for years, but REALLY like my 250f...

well my initial thought was why?

they are two distinctly different bikes. either one is fine, but I think just ride only one. my son rides a 300 4T, I do not ride his bike, because I just cannot adjust, so I prefer to stick to mine.

so what additional advantage will you get from the second bike, unless it is the exhaust sound ;)

I know was not much of a help sorry,

Do it. You can never have too many motorcycles and having a spare bike takes the pressure off to service/repair as you'll always have another bike ready to go  ;D

Unfortunately I've been having that lately, so the 250 has been racking up the hours

I had both in 2017 models. I preferred the 2 stroke. Suspension worked better on the 2t. 2t would go further on a tank of gas. 2t has much more low end. 2t was quieter. 2t is harder to stall. Maintenance is simpler on the 2t. That said, the 4t is a fun bike and I can ride just as fast but get tired quicker. It's nice not to worry about smashing a pipe or carrying extra oil on longer rides. The more hours I put on it the better I liked it. Sold the 2t and trying to sell the 4t. My down payment is in for a 2022 300SE Factory.

And BTW, progressive fork springs in the 4t helped to balance the suspension better, back with the WP forks anyway. The 4t needs different fork setup than the 2t, maybe due to engine braking.

I have 21' 30 2t and 20' 4t.  Love them both.  I transitioned back and forth all the time and it took about 10min to sink in.  However, what I like to ride requires a 2t.  The 4t is amazing for a 4t, but I just ride the stuff the 4t does best.  So, I have OB 250 and Sherco 300 2t.  I took the 300 SEF and made it into a supermoto and it is an utter blast!  So fun on the street and rips at the Kart track.  I can say this...the Sherco 300 4T might just be the most versatile bike I have owned.  May not be great at hard enduroish stuff but can do it okay and any other dirt discipline very well as well as ride supermoto and street just as good--impressive.
