Here's a couple of links that may help...

F4i

RR

It all seems like extreamly minor differences. different fuel injection. 7hp difference. slighly bigger brakes. the only thing i'm wondering about is do they have the same trans? the RR says close ratio and the f4i doesn't. Did they just leave that out in the f4i notes or is it different?

What years did the f4i go through? And what year did the RR start?

One is street and one is a track bike.
You want to see simular bikes, look at kawis zx6r and zx6rr.

Note that Yamaha has a YZF600r which is of '97 engineering compared to the hot trotting R6. Honda realized its mistake of the newest to be for track & naming it the RR SO they took the F4i & made it more street worthy what with a dual saddle compared to the solo & a blip piece for any pillion rider (you do not see husband & wife or couples riding sportbikes with solo saddle & a pimple of something for the g/f or wife to ride on do you?) plus some minor other modifications.

Mind you this was an error in Honda as their CBR-F41 of to-day & last year was/is much higher in price then the Yamaha YZF600r & the Kwacker KZZ-R600 while Suzy came out with the V-twin SV-650 & 650S.

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

They just seemed really similiar to me. only 7hp difference whereas the other makes 600cc bikes are about 20hp different. And the styling looks far more simliar that any 600r and r6 do. At least to me.

Smitty I'm trying to understand what you said but I can't follow it at all. I don't know enough jargon I guess. To me the seats of a f4i and rr looks pretty simliar.

ryp:
They are very simular. You could say its the same bike in different skins. Frame is the same, engine is very simular. Its a track and a street version of the same bike. One has milder cams for broader power, the other concentrates on higher peak. The seat on the f4i is one piece, where as the RR has a front and a rear seperate seats. Clip ons are most likely different. Etc
