I'd pick a 250 over a 125 *anytime*.
125cc are hard pressed to get up to speed, and that's going to cost you in mileage.

Back in the late '90s Suzuki had the TU250 Volty in its line-up. The bike did 3L/100km or 80 mpg (US) in a test by a local bike mag, still using a carburetor.
I see they're still available in the US, with FI rather than a carb.
I wonder what mileage they get now.

We get less and less 250 bikes in the EU, they got washed away by a tsunami of 125's which ppl can ride using a car licence in many EU countries.
