im just curious what your opinions are between these two bikes. if they even do compare. my buddy was getting all bent out of shape on the fact that I have my rr and he is looking at getting an f4i. im not sure why he doesnt want to get an rr, but whatever. he found an 03' for 3500. its got a tiny spot of rash. overall really clean though.
i just have some questions between the two. do they have the same motor? the rr has dual stage injection and that the f4i is just standard single. how well does the f4i keep up? i know riding experience is a big part. but say just cruising around town, how well will he be able to keep up. i know to be careful, but hey, im 18 almost 19. i dont get too crazy since i'd only been able to ride like a month last year and its been about a week this year. and i always wear my leathers and my boots.
any opinions you guys can give me would be awesome. im searching too, so dont bother telling me to.

his bike will be a better cruiser.

the stock RR suspension settings come as tough as nails, and you WILL feel like every pothole is a sledgehammer on your lower back.

yeah i have noticed that it is a little rough. the only other street bike i've ridden is a 97 ninja 250. lol. luckily my only long ride, which is about 45 min up to school, is all on nice roads. i just hope he gets it. as of now i have no riding buddies. i know some guys from school that ride but besides that, nobody.

The F4i is a nice bike, your buddy should have no problem hang'n with you on the steet.

The F4i is no wimp. He certainly isnt going to have any issues "keeping up" on the street. The F4i actually makes a bit more torque than the RR. It is a little more comfortable than the RR, at least I think so. $3500 is a great deal as well.

I would think of it this way...

the f4i is the homeschooled daughter in the Honda family who has her wild moments...the RR is the slutty sister who likes to be ridden hard ;)

I actually thought the exact opposite. My RR suspension stock was set all mushy. When i dialed it in for my weight forr the track/canyons, it was much more stiff.

The F4I s no slouch. It can hang on the street and 1/4 mile. I almost got one but when I seen and sat on the RR I knew I had to have the RR.

I was at the stealership looking at one, the dealer told me the F4i will actually beat the RR off the line, the RR is just a better handling bike.
i went from a 2000 F4 to an RR, and i noticed similar results. the RR felt slower but better handling. maybe it was the LOUD D&D that made the F4 "feel" faster lol
