A good way to figure out whether Honda ST1300 Pan European or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. The decision on your next motorcycle purchase should be all based on your personal preferences for speed, handling and comfort. The long personal list of favourite motorcycle models can be narrowed to just a few ones after comparing their pictures and technical specifications. 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 Honda ST1300 Pan Europeansee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Honda ST1300 Pan European has bigger engine size than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 but this is not a direct indicator for more power or better performance. 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 Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which can travel 37.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Honda ST1300 Pan European on the contrary can travel 37.3 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).
bike tires 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 choose the right tire size firstly you need to understand the meaning of the numbers printed on the size of the tire. Firstly the code shows the width of the tire measured in millimeters. Both motorcycles have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. After that comes the aspect ration shown by the second number in the code. 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.
Both motorcycles have the same ground clearance of 135mm. The parameter ground clearance refers to the space between the ground and underside of the chassis and is also called ride height of a motorcycle. This is the shortest line between the body of a motorcycle and the surface of the road.
The top speed of 246km/h makes Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 the faster of the two motorcycles. The other one (Honda ST1300 Pan European) can achieve a maximum speed of 227km/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
Honda ST1300 Pan European is liquid cooled and so is the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Liquid-cooled engines have a narrower range of operating temperatures compared to the air-cooled ones. Keeping the operating temperature at a very narrow range allows many engine components to be optimised for these temperatures. The liquid (coolant) is forced by the water pump to circulate from the radiator to the engine and back. The amount of cooling can be regulated via thermostat, which helps holding the temperature at a relatively constant level. However the water pump, the thermostat, the radiator and all the linking gear makes it a bit more complex.
As per their technical specifications both motorcycles have different types of final drive implementation.
chain final drive One of the bikes (Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) has the most frequently used final drive which is chain. Chain final drives are known for their simplicity and efficiency in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle and are one of the most popular final drive options by far. 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.The Honda ST1300 Pan European is driven by shaft.
Compression ratio Imagine an engine's piston is at the bottom of its stroke (step one) and moves up compressing the gas in the cylinder till it reaches its top position of the stroke (step 2). The compression ratio is the ration of the volume in step one over the volume in step two. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 10.8:1 for Honda ST1300 Pan European and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
One of the most important aspects of the basic level of maintenance of a motorcycle is the engine oil. Synthetic engine oils are considered the most technically advanced one and are more expensive than the mineral oils which come at lower price. The engine oil is to be changed on every 3700 miles (or 6000 kilometers) as a general 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. Both motorcycles have different oil capacity according to the technical specs - 3.9 litres for Honda ST1300 Pan European and 3.7 litres for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. The proper amount of oil needed is best judged while observing the reading on the level sight window (or the dipstick).
