one just by looking at the two you can tell the difference. if a person cant tell the difference they shouldnt be in the market for either. there is a great amount of difference between the two. everthing from ergos to power to handling to looks. there is no comparison between the two

Well, for your information, I have looked into both bikes and found no real differences other than .2 inch wheelbase increase on the RR and other minor changes.

I was asking because I wanted to hear the opinions from those who have used them before. I am interested to know the difference in handling and whatnot.

...Smartass !

The RR is a little more "hardcore" than the F4i. F4i is a MUCH better streetbike in every way and would be my choice if I were in the market for either of the 2. I ran an 11.10 on my friend's bone-stock F4i so it is not slow by any means. If you "need" the "latest and greatest", get the RR.

If it were my only bike, that had to see street and track duty... I'd buy the F4i.

If it were to spend more time at the track than on the street... I'd get the RR.



The F4i is no slouch. Just because it's no longer in the spotlight doesn't make it any less capable than it was when it was the bike to have.

Riding isn't only about the scratching on a Sunday morning. Sometimes it's about the 400 mile ride on Saturday to get to where you'll be scratching on Sunday morning with a 400 mile ride home that evening.

I would have to agree with you DarNinga...some folks post for the soul reason of reading their own bullshit. So.. you do not know the practical differences between two very similar bikes. OH MY GOD! The man had a question and came here looking for an awnser. Its actually a question I have had since the rr came out. DArNinga...don't let smart asses (aka...Quik) detour you from posting on this site. For the most part, members here are very responsive and willingly offer up their personal experience for information.

Let's see the RR is heavier then the F4I but has got more power. The RR also incorporates some suspension tech. from the RC211V Moto GP bike. Like everyone said F4I for street, RR for track. The F4I is plenty of bike for any sort of practical purposes.....I can hang with a friend's 04 GSXR600 on the straights and smoke it through the turns with my 99 F4 (basically the same as F4I but carbed instead of injected).

I have the f4i and have ridden the RR. Mine is a 01 though so the seat is diffrent. I shit you not me and my buddy that has the RR said mine (f4i) felt faster. All I have is an exhaust. It just feels like it has more low end for some reason. His felt a tiny bit more high end. His RPM's top out higher though. My riding position is A LOT more comfey. His feels compact and bent over more. Both are cool bikes. Get the f4i for comfort and get the RR for a better all around performance (not like most people could do anything with it anyway) and newer looks.

From a purely economical standpoint the RR is a better bike; it will hold it’s value in the years to come. For this reason alone, I wouldn’t buy an F4i unless I was getting one helluva deal.

Everyone else has already touched upon the minor disparities between each bike.

The F4i hasnt been detuned since the 600RR came out, has it?

It's all fun and games until someone loses a bottom end.

No one has mentioned the underseat exhaust on the RR. And, didn't they bring back the banana seat on the F4i?

Motorcyclist or Sportrider went quicker down the quarter on an F4i than ANY other 600SS ever, IIRC. The comfort factor isn't even comparable from what I've read. No wind protection on the RR and tighter ergos (seat to bars to pegs relationship). If I were a Honda man, I'd get an F4i and put a cowl on the back for solo riding. Can't even tell it's a one piece seat w/ it in place.
