To compare the technical specifications and features of Triumph Trophy 1200 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. After comparing one motorcycle versus another and so on, the circle of favourite models will be then eventually narrowed to several ones. The best way to explore them is to actually sit on these bikes and check how much comfort you get with each of them.

technical specifications of Triumph Trophy 1200see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Triumph Trophy 1200 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 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 Trophy 1200 on the contrary can travel 34.6 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.
motorcycle tires Motorcycle tyres come in variety of sizes and these sizes are strongly specified for each model. 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. After that comes the aspect ration shown by the second number in the code. And the third number indicats the diameter of the rim in inches. Buying motorcycle tires online can save you precious time and cash.
The ground clearance of Triumph Trophy 1200 (155mm) is bigger than the one of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (bbb2mm). 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). This is the shortest line between the body of a motorcycle and the surface of the road.
The top speed of 246km/h makes Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 the faster of the two motorcycles. The other one (Triumph Trophy 1200) can achieve a maximum speed of 243km/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
Both motorcycles are liquid cooled. Compared to the air cooled motorcycles the liquid cooled ones have a very narrow range of working temperatures. Therefore the liquid-cooled engine runs more efficiently and consistently. The water pump drives the coolant from the engine into the radiator and back. 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. Finally this type of cooling makes it is easier to meet emissions and noise regulations and increase power output.
motorcycle with chain final drive Triumph Trophy 1200 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 are both driven by chain. Most motorcycles are produced with chain drive because of its economical way to transfer power to the rear wheel and convey the biggest percentage of engine power in that process. However all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
Compression ratio 10.6:1 means that the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke refers to the volume of gas when the piston is at the top of its stroke as 10.6:1. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 10.6:1 for Triumph Trophy 1200 and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
The good quality of the engine oil is an important factor in keeping the motorcycle in peak condition. There are different types at different prices on the market - mineral, highperformance, all-purpose part-synthetic and synthetic oil. 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. Triumph Trophy 1200 takes 4.0 litres of engine oil. The technical specs of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 determines its oil capacity to be 3.7 litres. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. Pouring exactly the proper amount of oil needed is achieved by observing the level sight window or the dipstick marks.
