A good way to figure out whether Aprilia Pegaso 650 or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. When you know what specifications and features of a motorcycle will make you personally comfortable with it then your choice should be all about this criteria. A good way to narrow the circle of favourite bikes is to compare their technical specifications and select just a few that are really matching your style and needs. The best way to explore them is to actually sit on these bikes and check how much comfort you get with each of them.

technical specifications of Aprilia Pegaso 650see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Aprilia Pegaso 650 has a smaller engine displacement than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 but the size if the engine itself is doesn't mean that the bike is more or less powerful. The second bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 11.5:1 than the other one. This ratio is the relation of the volume in the cylinder when the piston is at the bottom of the stroke to the volume in the cylinder when the gas is compressed and the piston is at the top of the stroke. When the mixture of air and fuel in the combustion chamber has bigger pressure (higher compression ratio) when it is ignited then it burns more effectively and therefore these bikes tend to have better fuel economy (comparing engines with equal displacement).
The bike with a better fuel economy is the Aprilia Pegaso 650 which can travel 42 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. There are two ways of showing the fuel economy of a motorcycle - describing how many miles it can travel with a single gallon of fuel (mpg) or how many litters of fuel it is burning on a 100 kilometer trip (l\100km).
how to buy motorcycle tiresEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. The right choice also depends on your style of riding, whether you are speeding and riding agressively. You need to know what the code designators printed on the tire mean in order to be able to find the proper size for your bike. The width of the tire is represented by the first number. The next number refers to the tire profile. How many inches is the diameter of the rim - that is what the tird number reveals. Buying motorcycle tires online can save you precious time and cash.
The ground clearance of Aprilia Pegaso 650 (250mm) is bigger than the one of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (bbb2mm). The distance between the chassis and the base of the tyre is called ride height or also ground clearance of a motorcycle and is usually given in millimeters in the technical specifications. In simple terms that would be the shortest line among all the lines drawn between the surface of the road and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
The top speed of 246km/h makes Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 the faster of the two motorcycles. The other one (Aprilia Pegaso 650) can achieve a maximum speed of 180km/h according to its technical specifications. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.liquid cooling system of a motorcycle
Aprilia Pegaso 650 is liquid cooled and so is the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. The pretty constant ranges of operating temperature are typical for the liquid cooled engines. Once the operating temperature is reached (the engine is warmed up), it runs at a pretty constant temperature. The liquid (coolant) is forced by the water pump to circulate from the radiator to the engine and back. A thermostat turns on an electric fan to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down and the air flowing through the radiator is not enough to cool the liquid inside it to the desired level. A liquid-cooled engine happens to be quieter than the air-cooled one because all that liquid that surrounds the engine deadens mechanical noise.
motorcycle with chain final drive Both motorcycles Aprilia Pegaso 650 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same final drive - chain. Chain drives are by far the most popular final drive technology in the history of motorcycles and are the most economical way to drive power from the engine to the rear wheel. Many bikers may complain of the need of constant care though. Since the chain is exposed to dust, sun and rain it needs to be periodically cleaned and properly lubricated.
Compression ratio of a motorcycle engine is the ratio of the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of the stoke and its volume when the piston is at the top of the stroke. The value of the compression ratio of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the information in its technical data and for Aprilia Pegaso 650 the ratio is 9.1:1. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
The good quality of the engine oil is an important factor in keeping the motorcycle in peak condition. There are different types at different prices on the market - mineral, highperformance, all-purpose part-synthetic and synthetic oil. 3700 miles (6000 km) between oil changes is widely accepted rule. More kilometers between two oil changes is accepted when synthetic oil is used. A good practice is to replace the oil filter with each or every second oil change. The technical specs show that the Aprilia Pegaso 650 takes 2.2 litres of engine oil while the oil capacity of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres. This oil capacity values are with informative purpose only. Pouring exactly the proper amount of oil needed is achieved by observing the level sight window or the dipstick marks.
