Question Katana-like future for F4i?

I love it! As soon as the 600RR comes out, the F4i gets ranked with newbie bikes. Wasn't the F4i beating R6's and GSXR600's in recent races i saw on speedvision?

Is the F4i going to head the way of the Katana?

I agree with honda919Rider in that just because this years bikes are faster, it doesnt deem the fastest bikes of a couple years ago to now be newbie bikes, The bikes of then are just as fast as they were then, and asuming you havent been riding, your skills arent any better. Therefore the f4i is still probably not a responsible recomendation for a beginer. The gs500 is a great all around bike and a great choice for a beginer. The svs is even a better bike but is probably still overpowered for a newbie. But if you can afford it, it is a great machine if you take it slow and steady and respect what this bike can do. This is one of the most verstatile bikes on the market right now. There are more racing circuits, aftermarket mods, touring goodies, etc, than any other bike out that I can think of. This bike has PLENTY of power to grow into, and yes, it is a great stunt bike as well. You may not see them on many of the american videos, but this is one of the bikes of choice for the European stunters. Although a great deal for your money, the svs is not a cheap bike so understand that first it will take you a long time to start stunting but the sooner you do the sooner you are going to see your bike, and yourself get plenty of scrapes and bruises if not worse. Im not lecturing Im speaking from first hand experience, you cant stunt and have all new shiny gear and bike and body, (unless your a trustfund baby) Its One or The Other. And all the money in the world means nothing when your soft endoskeletal body meets with the Hard reality of an exoskeletal world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
