Worth noting,(performance wise),except for the bars and rearsets, the 600rr is identical in every way to the F4i. Same engine, same computer, everything.
WTF? The 2003 600RR shared nothing with the F4i, it was an all new design.

The 2001-2003 F4i was the same as the 2004-2006 save for the banana seat and frame color.

Could have sworn the 03 RR used the same engine as the F4i only angled slightly different to make a little more power, no? I know the RR uses a different FI sytem, and better suspension, but I thought the core was.. Ah well, moot point.
