Depends how you want to us it. Ride it everyday or only want a weekend/late night joyride. The F3 (or is it an F4?) is far more comfortable to ride. The fireblade is a monster however.

Yes, there is a power difference, but frankly upto 150kmph, there's nothing between these bikes.

My choice: 600

For the cost at wich they are coming, with just a difference of 25k, the fireblade for me...

But like Rt said, if u want an everyday ride, the 600 would be the one..

For daily use: 600
For weekend use only: 900

[N.S: these posts regarding sbk sales etc really makes me feel so so very jealous.... Would work the hell out and save cash to buy one atleast within 3 yrs]

_Well, wish I had a bike for every occassion_

Thanks for the replies. But are the prices right for these? I am more interested in the 900RR one.
btw, RT, the 600 is F3.

The price for the 900RR is right. Is it the one in Bandra?

Highly unlikely that you'll get a F4 for 4 lacs ! Even if you do, it'll be because something is wrong with it.
I would prefer the 600 as it has the best balance between power, comfort, durability & average. Besides it is one of the commonest sports bikes and parts would never be a problem.
It has a main stand !! May sound silly but it is a huge advantage as you could park the bike for some time in a place where you're not going to be able to keep a eye on it without the fear that someone would topple it.
This really increases the utility of the bike. Believe me I have a CBR 600 too and am talking from experience.

No chance of getting a 600F4 for that much. Might get a F3. The 900RR with Johnnie is in really good condition and totally worth the price.
