Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Suzuki RM-Z250 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. 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 most appropriate method of exploring them is to actually ride each of them or at least sit on them to see how they feel.

technical specifications of Suzuki RM-Z250see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Although Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has a bigger engine displacement than Suzuki RM-Z250 it doesn't necessarily mean it is more powerful or better performing bike. The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 13.75:1 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. Suzuki RM-Z250 on the contrary can travel 27 miles with a gallon. Miles per gallon (mpg) is one way of describing the fuel economy of a motorcycle and liters per 100 kilometers (l/100km) is another.
motorcycle tires Motorcycle tyres come in variety of sizes and these sizes are strongly specified for each model. Another considerable factor here is your own riding style. 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 measured in millimeters is shown first. The second number show the aspect ratio. The third of the code numbers reffers to the size of the rim and it is measured in inches. Prices of motorcycle tires can easily be compared online and purchesed at good price.
The ground clearance of Suzuki RM-Z250 (345mm) is bigger than the one of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (bbb2mm). 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. To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
The top speed of 246km/h makes Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 the faster of the two motorcycles. The other one (Suzuki RM-Z250) can achieve a maximum speed of 105km/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
Suzuki RM-Z250 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. Therefore liquid cooled motors can run with carburetion set to burn all the fuel in the mixture. The water pump drives the coolant from the engine into the radiator and back. The amount of cooling can be regulated via thermostat, which helps holding the temperature at a relatively constant level. Liquid-cooled engines are usually more forgiving because the hot engine has some surrounding coolant to heat up before causing any damage from overheating.
chain final drive Both motorcycles Suzuki RM-Z250 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same final drive - 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. 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 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. 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 Suzuki RM-Z250 the ratio is 13.75:1. 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.
Motorcycle oil is one of the most important components that keeps the engine running smoothly. Many different types of engine oils are available as minerral, part-synthetic and synthetic and they all come at different price. The engine oil is to be changed on every 3700 miles (or 6000 kilometers) as a general 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. The technical specs show that the Suzuki RM-Z250 takes 1.0 litres of engine oil while the oil capacity of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres. The values of the oil capacity here can not be used as a precise measurement when changing the oil. Observing the currrent level on the dipstick or the level sight window is the best way to pour the proper amount of oil.
