Seems to me, right now, the CBR250R (250cc, single, FI) is the best base for a high mileage project. Unfortunately they are nowhere near as plentiful as the Ninja 250.

Sendler (member here) got better mileage (105.6) at the recent Vetter challenge with a stock CBR than one of the streamlined Ninjas (101.9), and just slightly under one of the diesels (106.4). His CBR wasn't able to carry the cargo, so he was not eligible for awards.

It would be interesting to see what full streamling would do to the CBR's numbers - cause 105 MPG stock ain't too bad!
