5 most fuel efficient motorcycles you can own

Looks like a decent list. I'm sure you motorcycle EcoModders can add a few to the list though.

Also, are the new 300s more fuel efficient than the older 250s?

Some of the old carburetor 250 cc bikes did get better mileage. It would be a trade off for comfort and reliability.

I don't doubt the V-strom 650 can get great mileage, but what about the NC750X? Or the grom/Z125?? Or the Supercub? Fuelly supercubs are around 120-130 MPG.

Kind of hard to tell the CBR 300R MPG, fuelly data is janky, but the CBR 250R (single) seems to get high 60s to low 70s. The one or two 300s I can pull up are mid 70s.

I'm not so sure about the Versys, as it's somewhat more rev-happy...

I got well over 70mpg stock on my cbr 250. Although, I do think that went down a bit when they upped it to 300. Also, this doesn't count any of the scooter style bikes that register as motorcycles, ie the pcx150.

I got the impression this article was dealing with "highway worthy" bikes. I don't know that a Grom would be a great option for cruising down the interstate, though I prefer 55 mph back roads on any bike.
