A good way to figure out whether Yamaha Zuma 50 FX 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. 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 Yamaha Zuma 50 FXsee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Although Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has a bigger engine displacement than Yamaha Zuma 50 FX it doesn't necessarily mean 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 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 50 FX which can travel 130.7 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.
how to buy motorcycle tiresEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. 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 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. A good way to save some time and money is to purchase your motorcycle tires online at competitive price.
As per the data sheets Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has a bigger ground clearance (135mm) than Yamaha Zuma 50 FX (115mm). 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 is the bike with higher tested top speed (246km/h). On the other side Yamaha Zuma 50 FX can achieve speed of 68km/h on the highway. 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.
motorcycle driven by chain Chain final drive is used with the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. It is a fact that the majority of motorcycles around the world are driven by chains. Chains are simple and efficient way to transmit horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel. The down points of the chain drive are the frequent maintenance required as it needs to be regularly cleaned and oiled. Besides it is not as smooth as a shaft or belt drive.The Yamaha Zuma 50 FX is driven by a belt.
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 Yamaha Zuma 50 FX 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. Many different types of engine oils are available as minerral, part-synthetic and synthetic and they all come at different price. 3700 miles (6000 km) between oil changes is widely accepted 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. According to the technical specs the engine oil capacity is 1.3 litres for Yamaha Zuma 50 FX and 3.7 litres for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. 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.
