CBR600. F4i or RR?

I had a 07 RR wish I never sold it. Talked to wife and going to buy another one.


Want to buy outright so 4k tops not looking for best of as that's around 6k

Found this one what you guys think?

Looks clean!

Part of me wants to wait as I want a RR but this one looks so clean....

Why do you want the RR? The RR will be a little more high strung and have more of a racing style seating position. The F4i will have plenty of snot and handling for the road. I'm only asking because if you're settling just because this one is available, then I'd agree with your wige and say wait to find what you want. If you drive the F4i and it seems comparable to your old F4i and like it, then go for it

I had a RR and seriously the only reason I want the RR is the exhaust comes out te back looks smoother and I love that!!


Never rode a f4i I have had 2 Rrs

It's gonna be softer than an RR. Like Pugga said, though, it's got a lot of snot and handling for the road. If you wanna scrape knees better then go for the RR. Thought you could get an aftermarket for the F4i that brings the pipe under the seat, too? M'eh. After the RR's, the F4i might disappoint you.

My thoughts exactly, I went from a CBR to a Katana and it was a big shocker. I was used to really being able to flick the CBR into a corner and the first time I tried with the Katana almost ended in disaster (suspension was much softer on the Kat). I made the switch because I wanted a bike to put miles on more comfortably and still have some guts so in the end I'm happy with the new bike, just have to be more careful. If you really liked the RR, drive the F4i but I think you might be disappointed like Carcharias said.

Right on the money. Katana's are sweet, though. Always wanted one since I was a kid. Ride safe, guys!

You could tweak the suspension and get the foot peg relocating kit for an F4i and it would be pretty damn close to the RR (for street riding purposes). The side exhaust might be your deal breaker (plus tweaking suspensions and those foot peg relocation kits are $$$).

I had an f2, upgraded to a ZX6R, and I will never go back to a sport, super sports are the only way to go... I 'feel' so much more with the more aggressive seating position, and its a lot easier to keep the bike 'under' you.

I love my F4i, plenty of power and super flickable. There's a couple threads floating around from guys that did an undertail exhaust conversion if that's seriously your only problem, but they look like more trouble than they're worth. The RRs are nice looking too. I doubt I'll ever move past a 600 SS, so either the RR or the ZX6r are in the running for my next upgrade.

I've got a '06 CBR1000RR I'm looking to sell if you might be interested...little bit higher than what you're looking to spend but probably the same price as most 600's you've been eye-balling.

Why dont you get something that looks sexy as hell, rides wonderfully, and wont make it feel like your balls are chillin against a wooden plank?



Edit: NVm, i say the 4k limit. I managed to snag mine for 5.3, but most generally run 6. Oh well, my bad
