That depends on you and what style of ridding you intend to do.
If you want to go fast and look cool, go for the RR.
If you want to go fast and be moderately comfy, go for the F4i.
Both are fine bikes and I think the F4i rides two up better.

The RR definitely looks better, but it's one uncomfortable mfer if you're doing anything but track. I love my F4i, and they still trap 127, so they're quick. The 04+ I don't like, though, with the banana seat.

Go with the RR. It's a more aggressive ride. I have a 600RR, and I hear the argument that they are uncomfortable. I ride mine frequently for 100+ mile rides, and I don't have any more discomfort than my BMW R1100S which is supposed to be a plush ride.

Have you ridden an F4i? There's no comparison on comfort.

My one roomate has a 600RR, and although it's a sweet bike, after riding it I doubt I'd be able to spend as much time on it as my F4i without being seriously sore. I love my F4i as well... suprisingly comfy on long trips. The last 2 weekends I've rode up to Orlando and back the same day (about 3 1/2 hr each way + riding all over while up there), and I've put 1700 miles on this last week alone and don't feel at all sore.

Here is my :2cents:

It depends on what you want to get out of the bike. The RR is definitely the more track ready bike if you have the skills. The F4i still makes a good track bike, but like has already been said you will be adding stuff quick.

Is this first bike, second? You are new to TWF, but are you new to sport bikes or the track?

The F4i is a good starter track bike unless you are newer than new, but still enoguh to get in trouble with.

Both have great suspensions for both comfort and smoothness. The RR has a debatable plank for a seat. The RR is up by 25+ horses and is better astetically.

Some aftermarket parts are a little cheaper for the F4i than the RR. I believe the RR is about $500 more off the floor.

Welcome to TWF :twfrox:

Do you have the stock seat? Every Honda I've sat on is like sitting on a brick. But I agree. . I rode my buddy's GSXR 600 a couple weeks ago and it was relatively extremely uncomfortable.

F4i is 94 hp stock and the RR is 109 hp. :sorry: I thought the RR was like 126 for some reason. The 107 is from Sportrider's April '05 edition. The '05 is the most improved as they presented it.
