05 600RR or 600F4I

What is the main difference between these models? I was doing some research and I am actually seeing some good deals on the F4i. Saw a new 600 F4i for 6900 brand new in TN. I may have to take a road trip. Drive a few hours and save about 1500 buks, sounds like it makes sense.

No Bull!

The RR is more race ready and will have more aggresive stance, ergos, suspension, more power... everything you would think of.

Not to say that the F4I isn't fast and ready to rock. Just that the RR is more so!

F4i have what's called a connected "bannana seat" while the RR have two separate seats. F4i will be more comfortable compared to a RR. If you absolutely have to pick between the two, I would recommend the F4i as it would be a little bit more newbie friendly compared to RR (Note: I did not say any of these bikes are newbie friendly)

I own a '04 F4i and have put a few miles on Snakemann's '04 RR, I can tell you that except for the seat, you, as a new rider will not be able to tell the differences. Some of those differences have been mentioned here, but the differences between the two are so subtle, only an experienced rider will be able to tell them apart

At one point I considered getting rid of my F4I for the RR, but one I rode the RR I decided against it. The seat to handlebar ratio did not feel to good to me. I do like the undertail but to me it really wasn't worth it. Go with the F4I

DC to Tn would be a minimum of 10 hours. Not a short road trip.

I guess it could be done in around 7 to 8 hours in a car or on a bike if you were going East of Knoxville. Still not a short trip.

i was at this crossroad 6 months or so ago, and there is only 1 way to decide...

get on both and ride them. I was leaning twoards the RR, and after riding them both, went with it, and i'd never go back. My buddy was the same way, wanted the RR, but after riding the F4i, was 100% sold on the F4i. Both are great bikes. There are times (especially on the bumpy freeways here) where i wish i had gone with the more kidney-friendly F4i, but i just pee out the blood, and i'm good to go for another ride!
