Again, 110s are definitely not as popular, but I'm convinced that they are not completely inferior, even at the highest level of racing.
If anything, I feel that 125's are inferior on rough pavement. They don't have the ability to bridge across small cracks in the road which results is a much rougher ride and lost momentum.
