Current 250cc motorcycle

I am looking for a value priced motorcycle around $2,500 . I came from the 1970's era where a Honda 350cc motorcycle was the backbone. I hae noticed the smaller motorcyclesa ar all 250cc now. Is i save to assume that the current 250cc motorcycles are about the same powers as the older 350cc units.
I have been looking at the Honda Nighthawk, or the Yamaho Virago

Kevin I run a 250 Honda and I used to ride 350's years ago...I think the 350's had more stuff but my 250 will easily go 70mph so the difference isn't all that much. I really think smaller bikes are in the minority but they're gaining in popularity. Depends where and why you ride.
Thanks for the info

The 250 Ninjas are way faster than a 350 honda, better mileage and far better handling and will run 105mph. The virago is not near as fast but its alot more relaxed ride with the single pin v-twin engine and they get great mileage. See the yamaha page. If you just want to cruise, go virago if you like curves and a race motor sound at 13k go with a ninja. I have never owned a rebel but my guess is they are close to the virago 250.
