Check Honda's web page and compare the specs. Do a "google" search on each and read some reviews.

One is fast, and the other one more fast.

stright line speed for the '03-'04 is actually slower on the RR. But the RR will tear it appart in the corners.

The RR is a far more sexy bike than the F4i, and is even more fun to ride. The seat on the F4i is more plush though, not that it should really matter, but somepeople really do care about that for some reason.

i have also heard that strait line speed of the 01/02 f4i will beat the rr. As for the handling the rr is so much better. I have owned both

'01-'02 before the RR was a split seater i believe. plus not quite as down on hp as '03 and up. was pushing high 90's i think. they toned it down a little when the RR came out to give it more of a gap between the 2 bikes.

while half of me agrees with you, the other half tells me that this is THE BEST site to learn what you need to know. A person can determine a lot from researching online, and who better to tell you about a potential bike?

But, the other half of me does say that you should probably be looking at something not so new if you don't know anything about these two bikes. Seems to me that you're getting caught up in just having a pretty piece of machinery. I personally started on a '93 FZR600 (oh yah, there was definately some purple in there) and I don't regret it for a minute.
