A good way to figure out whether Honda VFR 1200F 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. After comparing one motorcycle versus another and so on, the circle of favourite models will be then eventually narrowed to several ones. Then the most appropriate judgement can be made when each of them is taken for a real ride.

technical specifications of Honda VFR 1200Fsee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Honda VFR 1200F in comparison to Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 doesn't mean that it is more powerful or better performing bike. The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 12:1 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 VFR 1200F on the contrary can travel 36.8 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 tires The size of the tyres is specified by the producer for each motorcycle. Picking the proper type that matches your individual style of riding is very essential. The code designators located on the side of each tires is something that you should be aware of if you want to find proper tires for your bike. The first of these numbers shows how many millimeters the tire is wide. Both motorcycles Honda VFR 1200F 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 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 ground clearance of Honda VFR 1200F (160mm) is bigger than the one of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (bbb2mm). 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. To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Honda VFR 1200F appears to be faster than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 with top speed of 268km/h against 246km/h for the other bike. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.liquid cooling system of a motorcycle
Honda VFR 1200F and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 are both liquid cooled. The tiny variations of the operating temperatures are one of the significant advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles. 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. A fan is turned on if needed by a thermostat to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down. Finally this type of cooling makes it is easier to meet emissions and noise regulations and increase power output.
As per their technical specifications both motorcycles have different types of final drive implementation.
final drive implemented with chain One of these two motorcycles (the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) is driven by a chain. 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. The down points of the chain drive are the frequent maintenance required as it needs to be regularly cleaned and oiled. Besides it is not as smooth as a shaft or belt drive.The Honda VFR 1200F is driven by shaft.
compression ratio is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the lowest point it is ever gonna go down and the volume of gas when the piston is at its highest point. Its value for Honda VFR 1200F is 12:1 and for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the technical data of the motorcycles. 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.
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. 3700 miles (6000 km) between oil changes is widely accepted rule. With synthetic oil though you can run as far as 8000 kilometers (5000 miles). The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. Both motorcycles have different oil capacity according to the technical specs - 4.0 litres for Honda VFR 1200F and 3.7 litres for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. The values of the oil capacity here can not be used as a precise measurement when changing the oil. The proper amount of oil needed is best judged while observing the reading on the level sight window (or the dipstick).
