Torrance, Calif. 09/08/2004 --

The incredibly versatile CBR600F4i strikes the perfect balance between full-on sport performance and day-long comfort.

Features & Benefits
New for 2005

Available in Silver/Metallic Silver and Candy Dark Red/Silver color combinations.
Engine/Drivetrain

High-output liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve four-stroke engine features oversquare bore and stroke of 67mm x 42.5mm with a straight intake tract contributing to superb power throughout the rpm range.
High-pressure programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) delivers fuel to four injectors, each mounted in a 38mm throttle body, at 50 psi. Fuel is delivered through four nozzle tips in each injector, producing a highly combustible air/fuel charge for maximum combustion efficiency and power.
A precise throttle sensor and sophisticated fuel injection mapping combine to produce smooth and linear throttle response, responding easily to fine throttle adjustments.
Auto-enriching system is integrated into PGM-FI module, eliminating the need for a manual choke.
Cylinder head features two springs per intake valve and hardened intake valve seats for even better high-rpm valve operation and durability.
Inclined cylinder-head cover mating surface permits higher placement of the intake camshaft for a straight intake tract providing excellent engine efficiency and power.
RC45(tm)-inspired aluminum composite cylinder sleeves are high-pressure-formed from sintered aluminum powder impregnated with ceramic and graphite. The lightweight composite sleeves provide better wear resistance and superior heat dissipation than conventional sleeves.
Aluminum alloy pistons feature LUB-Coat solid lubricant to minimize friction between the piston and cylinder wall.
Ram-air provides a high volume of cool air to the airbox, utilizing a two-stage system that precisely balances air pressure within the carburetor float and vacuum chambers with the air flowing through their bores, providing sharp throttle response, linear power delivery and incredible performance at all speeds.
Four transistorized direct-ignition coils integrate spark plug cap and high-tension lead to produce a high-voltage, long-duration spark, providing maximum performance at high engine output levels.
Electronic ignition CPU provides digital 3-D mapping for individual cylinders, creating ideal spark advance settings for all riding conditions.
Four-into-two-into-one exhaust system feeds single high-output polished stainless steel muffler for maximum power and efficiency.
Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation ensures high-rpm performance and durability and offers 16,000-mile maintenance intervals.
Mechanical automatic cam-chain tensioner.
Engine cooling system features a series-flow pattern that reduces piston crown and spark plug seat temperatures, resulting in increased power.
Bearingless water pump is lightweight and features high-efficiency design.
High-capacity liquid-cooled oil cooler contributes to lightweight engine design.
Clutch cover integrates pulser cover and is lighter than traditional designs.
Smooth-shifting close-ratio six-speed transmission features ratios carefully matched to engine's powerband.
Chassis/Suspension

Pro Frame(r) design consists of an aluminum twin-spar frame and extruded aluminum swingarm. The Pro Frame design locates the lightweight extruded aluminum box-section swingarm via a combined pivot in both the frame and the rear of the engine, producing superb handling and stability with excellent control.
Lightweight aluminum, detachable rear subframe section.
Rigid, 43mm HMAS(tm) front fork offers rebound, compression damping and spring preload adjustability.
40mm HMAS rear shock assembly utilizes Pro-Link(r) design with external reservoir for plush feel and excellent, well-controlled damping for all types of riding.
Twin front calipers feature four pistons each; pistons have a molybdenum/anodic-oxide coating and Teflon-coated rollback seals to enhance braking feel under repeated hard use.
Hydraulic rear disc brake features single-piston caliper and 220mm disc.
Durable, lightweight #525 O-ring-sealed drive chain.
Additional Features

Instrument display features analog tachometer with white numerals and needle indicator on a black face design; LCD digital displays for speedometer, odometer, A/B tripmeter, fuel reserve, clock, and coolant temperature; warning lights for coolant temperature, oil temperature, fuel injection, and over-rev; indicator lights for low/high beam, turn indicator and neutral.
Aluminum-alloy hollow-spoke wheels feature race-spec 3.5 x 17-inch front and 5.5 x 17-inch rear dimensions.
Industry-leading ergonomics for minimum fatigue in all riding conditions.
One-piece seat design for optimum rider and passenger comfort.
Lightweight aluminum upper cowl stay also serves as mounting bracket for mirrors and instrument housing.
Asymmetrical dual headlight design features computer designed multi-reflectors. Left-side low beam is complimented by both lights in high beam making for superb lighting in nighttime riding conditions.
Folding aerodynamic mirrors.
Front fairing and rear seat cowl utilize few parts for simple servicing.
Rear cowl storage box for U-type and cable locking devices (lock not included) under the passenger seat.
Integrated ignition switch/fork lock for added security.
Convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch.
Transferable one-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.
Ownership includes one-year complimentary membership in the Honda Rider's Club of America(tm) (HRCA(r)).

Yeah, they made it into more of a "sport touring" bike. Not my gig, but some people probably like it a lot

Yeah, I had a 2001 f4i and it was better looking than the new ones, the single seat doesn't do it for me. But I have to admit...I sat on one of those when I was shopping for my RR and it was pretty comfortable!

honda's got its new 600 race bike, so they don't need the F4i anymore. quit making it? no, its a great bike. how about we make it fugly as hell and sell it as a sport/tourer? suzuki sells a LOT of katanas and honda has a great bike that can compete in that market now. too bad it is so nasty looking. maybe if the tail plastics on that thing got shaved it would look more respectable. (and probably sell more without cutting into their 600rr sales)

the F4i is worlds above the katana, and can't be compared to it. so it has a banana seat, that is where the comparos stop. The F4i is a supersport bike, with a seat that you could ride for longer distances on. Even tho i own a 2002, Very few changes were made to the bike that werent cosmetic. 2 of my brothers hate the looks of the RR becuase the pipe is under the seat. there is something for everyone, that is the reason that they make different models...or else EVERYONE would ride the same bike and they all would have banana seats.

The VFR is a damn sexy bike that has a banana seat, and the F4i has a huge following because it is a great bike as well. i see tons of F4s and F3s on the streets and those have banana seats as well. most people don't have a problem with the looks. For me personally, i like the look of the split seat, but as long as it is on 2 wheels, it is still appealing...even if it's a harley. :mrgreen:
