The majority of the 600's are so close in performance that I would say that personal preferance should be the deciding factor.

It really depends on the type of riding. If you only hit curves and want to do track days get an R6. If you do all kinds of riding with a lot of highway get an f4i or 600R. If you want to be a squid go right for the gsxr 1000 and start doing stand-ups on the highway. :twofinger

No offense, Delta, but if you are not confident with your riding in all situations, you may want to hold off on getting a modern supersport bike. How long have you been riding and what bike do you have now?

That's what I'd recommend but I have an F4i so my opinion is likely biased. The 'F' in 'F4i' is meant to mean, "User Friendly", according to some Honda sources.

Choose the one you like best. You can't really go wrong with any one of them... and don't let the fact that the F4i is no longer a "premium" 600 fool you, it's still a great bike.

The f4i is nice but the seat sucks. I ride the shit out of mine and I wish it had a more aggressive stance sometimes. I might get something different next year. It was easy to learn on for me though.

600 class bikes

I have a 2003 Yamaha yzf 600 and my friend has a 2004 f4i and we both love our bikes the same. I am 6'1" and he is like 5'9" , he thinks that my bike is taller than his and that is why I like mine is for height and the way it fits me. I feel like the seat is too wide on his f4i and just perfect on the yzf. As far as performance they are almost identical since all we do is cruise the highways and go to work. We bought our bike like 2 months apart and he is only getting 40 mpg and I am getting 48 and the yzx 600 has carbs and the f4i is injected. I would reccomend either of these bikes to anyone but just remember you have to be the one that is comfortable on the bike. The best thing I like about our bikes is that no one else has them in town, of course we live in a small town too.

So basically you have no street experience and are are trying to convice people you're upgrading from the MSF course 250's to a 600 right off the bat...forget it. Stick to a 250 or 500.

Yet another :lame attempt to get people to agree with a noob starting on a 600ss! :bs

I never said i wasnt a noob, and i never said i had street experience.. All i stated was that i've driven a gsx750 before w/ no problem.. and i asked what 600 bike would someone suggest from a 250-500 upgrade... And no im not tryin to convince people anythin, i just wanted an opinion.. i probably did not explain it as well as i would of liked
