Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Suzuki SV 650 S 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 you know what specifications and features of a motorcycle will make you personally comfortable with it then your choice should be all about this criteria. 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. A good way to find the most suitable one among them would be to sit on each of them and if possible ride it for a while.

technical specifications of Suzuki SV 650 Ssee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 in comparison to Suzuki SV 650 S doesn't mean that it is more powerful or better performing bike. Both bikes has the same compression ratio of 11.5:1. This parameter show how the volume in the engine cylinder when the piston is at the bottom end relates to the volume when the piston is at the top end.
The bike with a better fuel economy is the Suzuki SV 650 S which can travel 46.1 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. Measuring the fuel economy in mpg shows how many miles of ride are covered by a gallon of fuel and measuring in l/100km shows the average fuel consumption in litters for every 100 kilometers riding.
tire sizesEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. 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 number is the width of the tire in millimeters. 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. And the third number indicats the diameter of the rim in inches. Looking online for motorcycle tires is a good way to easily find the right size at low price.
The ground clearance (ride height) of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 135mm and is smaller than the clearance of Suzuki SV 650 S which is 155mm. 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.
Comparing the top speed values of both motorcycles we can see that Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the faster one with 246km/h. As per the technical data of Suzuki SV 650 S it would be behind it on the highway with 205km/h. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled motorcycle
Suzuki SV 650 S and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 are both liquid cooled. The pretty constant ranges of operating temperature are typical for the liquid cooled engines. 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. A thermostat turns on an electric fan to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down and the air flowing through the radiator is not enough to cool the liquid inside it to the desired level. However the water pump, the thermostat, the radiator and all the linking gear makes it a bit more complex.
motorcycle with chain final drive Chain final drive is used with both motorcycles - the Suzuki SV 650 S and the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. 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 - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. 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 SV 650 S the ratio is 11.5:1. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
The good quality of the engine oil is an important factor in keeping the motorcycle in peak condition. 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. If you you synthetic oil then bigger mileage can be allowed between oil changes. Replacing the oil filter is also to be considered on each engine oil change. The technical specs show that the Suzuki SV 650 S takes 2.7 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. The best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
