With the introduction of the new CBR600F4i in 2001, I don't think you'll have a hard time finding low-mileage 2000 models, as so many people have to have the latest and greatest. I don't think you'll find anyone here that won't tell you that the F4 is a good bike. Several of our members own F4's and as far as I know, they all love theirs (and CBR600F4gd races his). Sure, it may not have the racer's edge that the Yamaha R6 has, or the new GSXR600 or F4i, but for someone just moving up to a sportbike, it's an awesome choice. Excellent fit and finish, ergonomics, motor, tranny, Honda reliability, etc. If the price is right, you can't go wrong, IMO.
