Sendler, I don't think it's a case of nobody liking them, more of nobody knowing that much about them. 75-85 MPG at Interstate speeds with 6k oil change intervals and probably the lowest emissions of any vehicle on the road today with an IC engine. I just can't quite get to your mileage figures because I am 61 and 205-210 pounds and tucking behind that stock windshield is a figment of my imagination half a lifetime ago.

I think the 125 has lower compression but I could certainly be wrong, but in your case with your tuck advantages the 125 may be perfect for your trip to work, as long as you don't have too many grades to navigate.
