Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Kawasaki Versys 1000 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is a proper approach to determine which of the two is more likely to match your style of riding and to satisfy your preferences. The decision on your next motorcycle purchase should be all based on your personal preferences for speed, handling and comfort. 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. Then these bikes in question could be best explored on the road where handling, performance and comfort of sitting position can be best felt in action.

technical specifications of Kawasaki Versys 1000see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Kawasaki Versys 1000 in comparison to Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 doesn't mean that it is more powerful or better performing bike. The second bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 11.5:1 than the other one. This is the ration of the volumes in the cylinder in two stages of the stroke when the piston is at the lowest and then at the highest point in the cylinder. 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 Kawasaki Versys 1000 which can travel 38.6 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 The producer of each bike specifies the sizes of its front and rear tyre. Another considerable factor here is your own riding style. 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 have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. The second number show the aspect ratio. How many inches is the diameter of the rim - that is what the tird number reveals. A good way to save some time and money is to purchase your motorcycle tires online at competitive price.
Kawasaki Versys 1000 has a better ground clearance of 155mm ( for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 it is 135mm). The ground clearance is also called the ride height and that is the distance between the base of the tyre and underside of the motorcycle’s body (the chassis). To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the bike with higher tested top speed (246km/h). On the other side Kawasaki Versys 1000 can achieve speed of 225km/h on the highway. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled motorcycle
Those two motorcycle use the same cooling system - liquid. The tiny variations of the operating temperatures are one of the significant advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles. The relatively consistent combustion environment of the liquid-cooled engine means that the mixture of fuel and air can be precisely controlled and optimised for better output. The circulation of the coolant from the radiator to the engine is helped by the water pump. The amount of cooling can be regulated via thermostat, which helps holding the temperature at a relatively constant 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.
chain final drive Both motorcycles Kawasaki Versys 1000 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. However chains have their down points - more frequent need of maintenance (lubrication and cleaning) which means that a biker should always keep an eye on the chain especially in rainy days or dusty roads.
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 10.3:1 for Kawasaki Versys 1000 and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. If you got a motorcycle with a greater compression ratio for its specific engine it is getting better fuel economy than it would if it had a lesser compression ratio.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. Mineral and part-synthetic engine oils are cheaper when it comes to price in comparison with the most technically advanced synthetic motor oils. It is commonly accepted engine oil to be changed on every 3700 miles (6000 kilometers). 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. Kawasaki Versys 1000 takes 3.8 litres of engine oil. The technical specs of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 determines its oil capacity to be 3.7 litres. The oil capacity here is just to give you a rough idea of how much oil you need on an oil change. The proper amount of oil needed is best judged while observing the reading on the level sight window (or the dipstick).
