Question

I've been too busy to look lately. Has the 2001 F4i been reviewed by any magazines yet? If so what do the real numbers look like compared to the claimed numbers?

I've searched and searched and so far come up empty handed. If anyone knows of anywhere I can find these numbers, let me know too. I am extremely excited to see the numbers for the new r6-beater!

Talking NOT THIS ONE

The New F4i aint gonna beat this R6.

It should remain in the back like all the other Hondas. Only joking, don't want to start any fights here.

I can't wait to see the new Gixxer and F4i!

Unhappy

Any one of these bikes is far more capable than I am so discussing which one has a slight advantage over which at the edge of the envelope is silly for me. At 6'2" I have other things to worry about if I switch backa to the middle class. I have sat on the new Kawi 6R and was pleasently surprised by the ergos. The R6? You must be kidding right? Can you say monkey f*$#ing a football? I'll have to wait until I can lay hands on an F4i before I decide.

Don't be offended R6 owners I like the bike, I think they're gorgeous and undeniably fast, I just can't take the ergos. Peace...

R6 owner not offended.

I am glad that you realize that the capabilities of the rider are what really count. Obviously someone that can't ride at edge of the perforance envelope will not really see the differences in these bikes.

The R6 can be uncomfortable. But when it comes to the corners it's like a dream. Sounds a bit like Ducati's. Not that I would compare 'rice' to 'pasta'!!

That reminds me, all bikes are predictable. It's the riders that make them unpredictable due to survival reactions.

Didn't I read that there is actually going to be 2 CBR600Fi bikes? One is the Fi and the other is the more performance oriented Fi Sport.

I love the look of the F4i! I guess the Honda brass read my post about black frames...
