I don't know if I posted in the right section, but I take the risk.
I want to get a town economical commuter. I've thought first of Honda's CBF125 or Yamaha's Virago 250/SR125/YBR125. They are all nice, economical and reliable, but naked. Lastly, I decided to choose between 2009+ Honda CBR125R or Yamaha YZF-R125. Even though they are more sportish, they return excellent fuel economy (2 to 2,5l/100km or 90+ US MPG) and above all, they are fully-faired (so I won't have much trouble with the wind). Before picking one of these I want to know some information which only people who owned them can help me. Need to mention that there are things that do not really matter to me. For example, the motorcycle height. I am 180cm and they both fit me right(Honda is lower and Yamaha higher seated).
First off, I'm interested in how many RPMs require each bike to maintain 60km/h (or 40mph) (max 70km/h) in the 6th gear.
- Which of these is the most confortable (for example: which one requires a more upright position)
