At highway cruising speeds the bigger motor is under lesser strain (RPM) than its smaller counterpart at the same speed, so its fuel efficiency will be better.

The R3 will have to find its sweet spot in terms of RPM & fuel efficency while cruising, instead of trying to keep up with the N650.
But the fun factor comes in only when its pushed hard so - pick one.
