I have seen this once before.

I want to isolate what makes the engine efficient.

A 25cc motor will be super efficient compared to a 250cc motor however the 25cc motor cannot travel at 110km per hour.

Even engine capacity is not a definitive indicator as an engine may be poorly designed or not designed for efficiency.

I am specifically looking for 110km per hour top speed and lowest possible fuel consumption. If I can get a scooter that would allow for recumbent seating but scooter CVT motors are heavy.

We don't have Honda Wave here in Australia.
