While I am a true green nut (My last 12 bikes have been Kawi's) I think the F4i is a better bike.

If I had 10 grand to spend, I would buy an older bike rather than a new one and and dump the rest of the money on mods and gear.

Or another idea... buy a mid to late 90's bike for road use, and get a track bike... say a 125.

But thats just me.

Why not a ZX-6R as a possiblity? The 7R and CBR600 are 2 pretty dissimilar machines. The 6R and CBR are usually lumped together as being more 'real world' 600's.

BTW, you can probably get a great deal on a 6R (or most any Kawasaki?) and use the money you save for gear. Got my 6R for $7100 a year ago. They've dropped the price $500 since I bought mine (it used to retail for $8100).
