A good way to figure out whether Yamaha Zuma 125 or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. You certainly have your own comfort zones in speeding, handling and sitting position and these should guide you to your choice of motorcycle. After comparing one motorcycle versus another and so on, the circle of favourite models will be then eventually narrowed to several ones. 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 Yamaha Zuma 125see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has bigger engine size than Yamaha Zuma 125 but this is not a direct indicator for more power or better performance. The second bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 11.5:1 than the other one. This parameter shows 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. 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 Zuma 125 which can travel 90.5 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 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.
tire sizesIf the time to replace your motorcycle tyres has come then you need to find the proper new ones. Picking the proper type that matches your individual style of riding is very essential. You need to know what the code designators printed on the tire mean in order to be able to find the proper size 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. Since many internet stores are offering motorcycle tires it is an easy way to get proper pair of tires online at reasonable price.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has a better ground clearance of 135mm ( for Yamaha Zuma 125 it is 125mm). 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. To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 appears to be faster than Yamaha Zuma 125 with top speed of 246km/h against 95km/h for the other bike. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.
As per their technical specifications both motorcycles have different types of final drive implementation.
chain driven motorcycle One of the bikes (Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) has the most frequently used final drive which is 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 they are not as smooth as belts and shafts and also require frequent care like cleaning and keeping the chain properly lubricated.The Yamaha Zuma 125 is driven by a belt.
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. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 10:1 for Yamaha Zuma 125 and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. This is actually the relation between the biggest and the smallest capacity of the combustion chamber. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. Synthetic engine oils are considered the most technically advanced one and are more expensive than the mineral oils which come at lower price. As a general rule it should be changed on every 6000 kilometers or 3700 miles. More kilometers between two oil changes is accepted when synthetic oil is used. Some oil filters can be replaced on every second oil change while others are to be replaced on each oil change. Yamaha Zuma 125 takes 1.6 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. The exact amount of oil you pour in is to be judged by the current level shown on the oil level sight window or dipstick.
