    i've been searching for a couple of weeks for a new bike and i've narrowed it down to two bikes...

    i've found a 98 CBR900RR with 50,000k's and a 2000 CBR6000F4 with 25,000k's

    can anyone tell me what are the major differences between the RR and the F4?

    both bikes are around $5000


    *edit* obviously i'm aware of the difference in engine size.

    They're completely different bikes. The similarities basically stop after the sticker on the tank. You'd have to ride both and decide what you want.
    I reckon you'd be bored of the 600 a lot quicker than the 900, coming off the GSE500 you have.

        to me the only thing to consider would be the mileage but i've never ridden above 250cc so a 600 would be fine but you may get bored with already riding a 500 so err i dont know......

            If you go for the F4, 6000cc's will use a lot of juice..

              If those were the only 2 choices i have i would go the 900RR pending it was in good mechanical nick.

              Will have a lot more power to boot than a '00 600.

              But as tim said although they are both Honda cbr's they are not similar at all, test ride both of them and go from there.

                i would go the one with the least km.. the 600F4 will piss all over a GS500E

                the 900 is worth a look though, if its been looked after 50,000km is getting in the range where stuff is starting to wear out even if the motor and gbox seem fine. i wouldnt touch it unless it was original and comes with a complete service history

                engines start needing valve shims and timing chains

                forks and rear shock needs new oil, new springs and seals $1000-$2000
