A good way to figure out whether Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650 or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. Your choice of motorcycle should be all about your individual preferences and comfort level. 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 Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has bigger engine size than Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650 but this is not a direct indicator for more power or better performance. Both bikes has the same compression ratio of 11.5:1. 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.
The bike with a better fuel economy is the Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650 which can travel 40.6 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.
front and rear tiresEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. Your type of riding is also to be taken into account here. 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 is represented by the first number. Both motorcycles have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. The aspect ratio of the tire is represented by the second number of the code. The third of the code numbers reffers to the size of the rim and it is measured in inches. Looking online for motorcycle tires is a good way to easily find the right size at low price.
The ride height of 135mm (ground clearance) is equal for both motorcycles. 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). 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.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the faster of the two with top speed of 246 kilometers per hour against the max speed of 182 km/h specified to its opponent Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650. 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. Keeping the operating temperature at a very narrow range allows many engine components to be optimised for these temperatures. The main principle is circulation of the liquid between the radiator and the engine. The temperature is kept at a relatively constant level by a thermostat which turns on a fan to draw more air over the radiator if needed. A liquid-cooled engine happens to be quieter than the air-cooled one because all that liquid that surrounds the engine deadens mechanical noise.
motorcycle driven by chain Both motorcycles Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650 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 of a motorcycle engine is the ratio of the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of the stoke and its volume when the piston is at the top of the stroke. Its value for Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650 is 11.5:1 and for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the technical data of the motorcycles. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration 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. Engine oils are different types as synthetic, mineral, part-synthetic and they all come at their price and qualities. The oil is usually to be changed after 6000km (3700 miles) after the previous oil change. With synthetic oil though you can run as far as 8000 kilometers (5000 miles). Replacing the oil filter is also to be considered on each engine oil change. The technical specs show that the Suzuki SFV650 Gladius 650 takes 2.8 litres of engine oil while the oil capacity of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. The best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
