To compare the technical specifications and features of Triumph Tiger 1050 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is a good way to find out which one of these motorcycles will better match your style and requirements. 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. The long personal list of favourite motorcycle models can be narrowed to just a few ones after comparing their pictures and technical specifications. 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 Triumph Tiger 1050see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Triumph Tiger 1050 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 represents the biggest volume of the cylinder when the piston is located at the lowest point of the stroke compared to the minimum volume of the cylinder when the piston is at the highest point 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. Triumph Tiger 1050 on the contrary can travel 35 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.
motorcycle tires Motorcycle tyres come in variety of sizes and these sizes are strongly specified for each model. Your individual riding style is another factor that determines which type is appropriate in your case. 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. 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 number shows the size of the rim - its diameter measured in inches. Since many internet stores are offering motorcycle tires it is an easy way to get proper pair of tires online at reasonable price.
The ground clearance of Triumph Tiger 1050 (145mm) is bigger than the one of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (bbb2mm). Usually given in millimeters in the technical data sheets, the ground clearance refers to the space between ground level and underside of a motorcycle’s chassis and sometimes is called ride height. 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 bike with higher tested top speed (246km/h). On the other side Triumph Tiger 1050 can achieve speed of 216km/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 pretty constant ranges of operating temperature are typical for the liquid cooled engines. 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 coolant is circulating into the radiator and back to the engine driven by the water pump. 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.
final drive implemented with chain Chain final drive is used with both motorcycles - the Triumph Tiger 1050 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 all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
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. Based on the information from the technical data of the motorcycles the values are accordingly 12:1 for Triumph Tiger 1050 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.
One of the most important aspects of the basic level of maintenance of a motorcycle is the engine oil. Mineral and part-synthetic engine oils are cheaper when it comes to price in comparison with the most technically advanced synthetic motor oils. The oil is usually to be changed after 6000km (3700 miles) after the previous oil change. The quality of the synthetic oil allows up to 5000 miles (8000 km) between oil changes. The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. Triumph Tiger 1050 takes 3.5 litres of engine oil. The technical specs of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 determines its oil capacity to be 3.7 litres. When changing the oil it is advisable to put less than the specified oil capacity and to check the level. Observing the currrent level on the dipstick or the level sight window is the best way to pour the proper amount of oil.
