Which 200-300cc Scooter gets the best mpg? What do you get?

Calling all scoots, Who gets the best mpg with a medium 200-300cc scooter? I know it's not my Morphous but I'm ok with 55-60mpg with this heavy boat! (If I only had one more gear....lol)
I heard a 250cc Piaggio BV250 can get 70mpg?

Hey David, we have 2-2006 Morphous also. Love them (except for my seat, but I'm reworking that now).

When I had my 2001 Honda Reflex it averaged 71 MPG and some of my best tanks were right around 74 MPG. I really miss that scooter!

My Burgman 200 averages 74 to 76 MPG. Seems to be a bit less consistent then the Reflex 250 ever was but the trend is overall higher.

My Forza 300 seems to be at best 68 MPG but its a little heavier and the engine is a little larger then most 250cc scoots so I guess that is why its a bit less then the Reflex it replaces. Some Forza owners pull off 71 to 74 MPG though! Maybe mine will improve with more miles?

Absolute worse fuel economy on a scooter was my Sport City 125 and Typhoon 125. About 55 MPG average on those scoots. Kind of hard to believe a 125cc scoot could get such low fuel economy but these did. They must dump raw gasoline out the tail pipe or something.

Absolute best out of a scooter I have experienced is the 2015 PCX150 at 105 MPG.

In my opinion the 200 to 300cc class of scoots offer the best fuel economy and practicality of any other class of scooter. Anything larger burns more fuel and anything smaller you start to loose some flexibility mainly on route planning.

The Reflex and the Forza were/are considerations of ours but found the Morph first. I'm thinking the PCX and the Elite 110 would compete for the perfect urban gas miser but I wanted a Highway friendly scooter for my rides.
I'm pretty sure my buddy who rides a Aprilia Scarab 200 gets in the upper 70's. But his has been modified.

I'd heard the BV was a lil better but 65mpg is a happy day! Is the BV fuel injected. On the Morph I can do 80mph on the speedo but at 81-82mph the rev limiter kicks in. That will wake you up for sure!

Not bad for a big sled! Way better than the 15mpg in the Tundra and even better than the 40mpg in the wife's 06 Jetta TDI.
Anybody know what the Sym HD200 gets?

Does Portugal use Imperial or US gallons? 4.55 liters per Imp. gallon vs. 3.79 liters per US gallon.

Same here as longhaul747 noted: - My previous '07 Reflex - low 70s; my '14 Burg 200 - consistently mid/upper 70s.

I'm getting around 66 on my Forza 300 with a high so far of 69.9. Just turned 500 miles so it should loosen up a bit still.

My Aprilia Sportcity 250 gets about 72 mpg. 75 mpg a couple of times. I ride between 45 and 65 mph. Hardly ever go above 65 on it; top speed is about 80 via gps.

My Sport City 250 varies from low 60s to 80 MPG. Low 60s is running 70+ on the highway or cold weather. Warmer weather and keeping it mostly below 65 on back roads typically gets 75MPG.
