what the difference?

I have been shopping around for a new bike for the past month or so. I ride with two of my buddies, one has a R6 and the other a GSXR600. So these are the only two bikes i have even been lookin at. But i have ran across a few deals in the local bike trader on some Hondas. I am not sure of the difference between the CBR 600F4I, and the CBR 600RR. Power difference, riding position etc. I don't really do any stunting, the occasional wheelie but thats it, i prefer to just get on the bike and cruise. Any help would be appreciated

Not being a Honda guy, the only thing I can tell you is that the 600RR is more of a racing posture bike. The 600F4I is a great bike your distance riding on. I ride with lots of people with the 600F4i and they seem to like it. It fits their non-stunting type of riding style.

I do not have any of those Honda bikes & have Honda 929 & 954.

Still I am pretty sure there are some pretty dramatic changes between the CBR 600F4I, and the CBR 600RR. Best to find a road test on both or at least the 600RR & they will mention said changes.

Like most feel there are no changes on the 929 & 954 other then cc of engine size only far, far more like better torque at lower revs, larger rad, rider is moved several inches farther to the front, clip-ons down a bit lower, better stopping power, that one fits better into the petrol tank, that it corners better & such.

Though most will not even feel this for they are NOT experienced enough riders to FEEL the difference.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

So would it be fair to say the the F4 is Honda's version of suzuki's Katana, or Yamaha's 600R?

Yes that is a fair thing to say, but I think the F4i is MUCH more developed than the other brand's equivilants
