fyi: honda has a feature on their website that allows you to compare models side-by-side.
for example, clickie here and then click the "Compare this Honda" link on the left.

the f4i is intended more as a street-cruiser version for the masses, while the RR is the formula race version. glaring differences are: suspension (forks are different, and check the sexy swingarm on the RR), riding position on the RR is much more aggressive (read: uncomfortable), undertail exhaust, i believe the fuel injection system is different, better brakes on the RR, slight weight difference.

anyone know how the horsepower compares, or the gear ratios?

I asked this over in the 600RR forum. The 600RR is a GP race style bike. More aggressive and built to race so the posture is suited for laying low to the tank. The F4i is going more toward the sport touring style. The bars are higher so you don't have to lean forward as much. The 600RR will cause strain on your hands/wrist if you sit up too much. If you read the specs from Honda, they are very close. Same engine, and a few other things as well, but it's a different set up. The bottom line is you pick between a faster more aggressive bike, or comfort. Here's the link for the other post https://cbrforum.com/m_20529/tm.htm

The guy I bought mine from had a 2002 F4i before the RR. He thought that the RR was a smoother bike than the F4i and a better handler. Of course, he said he could only ride the RR for an hour before his wrists got sore. I ride the RR a couple of hours at a time w/o any problems. Much of it has to do w/proper riding technique, but it can be uncomfortable if you just want to lounge on the ride.

Remember they tuned the f4i down in 2002 compare an 01 f4i to the RR
