A good way to figure out whether Aprilia Tuono V4R or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. When trying to make your mind on the next motorcycle, your personal levels of comfort should be the leading 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 Tuono V4Rsee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Aprilia Tuono V4R has bigger engine size than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 but this is not a direct indicator for more power or better performance. The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 13:1 than the other one. This parameter shows how the volume in the engine cylinder when the piston is at the bottom end relates to the volume when the piston is at the top end. 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 Tuono V4R which can travel 37.9 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. The fuel economy of a motorcycle is either measured in mpg or l/100km, the first showing how many miles can be ridden with a gallon of fuel and the second showing how many litters of fuel are consumed on a 100km ride.
tire sizes Motorcycle tyres come in variety of sizes and these sizes are strongly specified for each model. Picking the proper type that matches your individual style of riding is very essential. To get the proper tire size requires that you know the meaning of the numbers and letters printed on the side of each tire. The first of these numbers shows how many millimeters the tire is wide. Both motorcycles Aprilia Tuono V4R 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 second number show the aspect ratio. The diameter of the rim is represented by the third number in the code. Prices of motorcycle tires can easily be compared online and purchesed at good price.
The ground clearance (ride height) of Aprilia Tuono V4R is 125mm and is smaller than the clearance of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which is 135mm. The ride height is the other name of the parameter ground clearance which refers to the measure from the tyre base to the underside of the cassis of a motorcycle. 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 265km/h makes Aprilia Tuono V4R the faster of the two motorcycles. The other one (Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) can achieve a maximum speed of 246km/h according to its technical specifications. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled motorcycle
Both motorcycles are liquid cooled. Liquid-cooled engines have a narrower range of operating temperatures compared to the air-cooled ones. Therefore liquid cooled motors can run with carburetion set to burn all the fuel in the mixture. The circulation of the coolant from the radiator to the engine is helped by the water pump. A fan is turned on if needed by a thermostat to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down. Water jackets in a liquid cooled engine act as sound insulators and make it quieter.
chain final drive Chain final drive is used with both motorcycles - the Aprilia Tuono V4R and the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. One of the most economical way to drive horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle is achieved with the chain drive and therefore it is still the most used among the three options by bike manufacturers. 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 13:1 means that the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke refers to the volume of gas when the piston is at the top of its stroke as 13:1. Based on the information from the technical data of the motorcycles the values are accordingly 13:1 for Aprilia Tuono V4R and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. This is actually the relation between the biggest and the smallest capacity of the combustion chamber. 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. 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). If you you synthetic oil then bigger mileage can be allowed between oil changes. The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. According to the technical specs the engine oil capacity is 3.4 litres for Aprilia Tuono V4R and 3.7 litres for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. This oil capacity values are with informative purpose only. The exact amount of oil you pour in is to be judged by the current level shown on the oil level sight window or dipstick.
