Question Better streetbike R6, or F4i?

For people who have rode both the 2001 R6 and F4i, which one is more fun,comfortable, and easiest to control on the city streets and freeways? I've heard that the R6 is a bit lazy around the city streets as far as low end power. Can people give some unbiased opinions? Why does Motorcyclist magazine rate the R6 as the number one 600 bike over the F4i, even though the F4i makes less experienced riders feel more confident?

Because Motorcyclist does not consider *only* inexperienced riders in their analysis. They also liked the R6 quite a bit more than the F4i when it came to riding on the track. Just FYI, Cycle World just gave the F4i one of it's "10 Best" awards, so you can see just how subjective these things are.
