My experience with cafe racers is that I don't notice I'm working harder when I'm riding. I think it's because I'm having so much fun and it's such an adrenaline rush. I notice it later, a couple of hours after the ride it over. But seriously, I think it's subjective, you should take one for a test ride and see what you think. Better yet, if you can switch with a buddy for a day ride, you'll get a much better feel for it.
