A good way to figure out whether Aprilia Tuono 1000 or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. You certainly have your own comfort zones in speeding, handling and sitting position and these should guide you to your choice of motorcycle. It is not unusual to find it hard to find the most suitable motorcycle and comparing the technical specifications and pictures will help to shorten the list of favourite ones to just a few models. 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 Tuono 1000see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1
The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 11.8:1 than the other one. This represents the biggest volume of the cylinder when the piston is located at the lowest point of the stroke compared to the minimum volume of the cylinder when the piston is at the highest point 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 Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which can travel 37.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Aprilia Tuono 1000 on the contrary can travel 36.8 miles with a gallon. Measuring the fuel economy in mpg shows how many miles of ride are covered by a gallon of fuel and measuring in l/100km shows the average fuel consumption in litters for every 100 kilometers riding.
tire sizes Motorcycle tyres come in variety of sizes and these sizes are strongly specified for each model. Your type of riding is also to be taken into account here. Tires have a code of numbers and letters printed on their sides and these are important to be understood properly when looking for matching tires. The width of the tire is represented by the first number. Both motorcycles Aprilia Tuono 1000 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same width of their tires - 120 mm for the front tire and 190 mm for the rear one. The aspect ratio of the tire is represented by the second number of the code. The third number shows the size of the rim - its diameter measured in inches. Buying motorcycle tires online can save you precious time and cash.
The ride height of 135mm (ground clearance) is equal for both motorcycles. Usually given in millimeters in the technical data sheets, the ground clearance refers to the space between ground level and underside of a motorcycle’s chassis and sometimes is called ride height. To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Aprilia Tuono 1000 appears to be faster than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 with top speed of 253km/h against 246km/h for the other bike. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Motorcycle with liquid cooling system
Both motorcycles are liquid cooled. Motorcycles with liquid cooling operate at narrower temperature ranges. Keeping the operating temperature at a very narrow range allows many engine components to be optimised for these temperatures. The circulation of the coolant from the radiator to the engine is helped by the water pump. If the motorcycle slows down to a point where the air flowing through the radiator is not enough to lower the temperature of the coolant to the needed level, a thermostat will typically switch an electric fan on to increase the air flow through the radiator. A liquid-cooled engine happens to be quieter than the air-cooled one because all that liquid that surrounds the engine deadens mechanical noise.
chain driven motorcycle Chain final drive is used with both motorcycles - the Aprilia Tuono 1000 and the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. It is a fact that the majority of motorcycles around the world are driven by chains. Chains are simple and efficient way to transmit horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel. However they are not as smooth as belts and shafts and also require frequent care like cleaning and keeping the chain 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 Tuono 1000 the ratio is 11.8:1. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. Engine oils are different types as synthetic, mineral, part-synthetic and they all come at their price and qualities. It is commonly accepted engine oil to be changed on every 3700 miles (6000 kilometers). With synthetic oil though you can run as far as 8000 kilometers (5000 miles). Some oil filters can be replaced on every second oil change while others are to be replaced on each oil change. As per the technical specs both motorcycles have the same engine oil capacity of 3.7 litres. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. The best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
