    Honda CBR 600 F4

    So I am doing my normal drive to work driving spiritedly at around 80mph when I pass a Honda CBR F4 (who must have been doing the speed limit of 65mph or maybe 70). After I pass him I look in my rear view and I don't see him anywhere because he got on his throttle and got in my blind spot. A second later he gets next to me (still doing 80mph) and guns it so I down shift and hit it. By the time we hit around 120 I am still ahead of him but at 130 he started inching by me so I decided to get off the throttle and so did he, I gave him a thumbs up which he he kinda gave me this head shake like "yeah right" so I was like OKKKKKKKKK. Anyway I have a Stage 2 STi but I am untuned and having some top end issues so my question is has anyone ever ran these bikes or know what times they run? I just wanted to know because if I was to run him in the quarter I probably would have beat him by 2 cars or so.

    P.S.:The freeway was totally empty other wise I would not have even tried.

    He wasn't racing or it wasn't a 600F4.

    I have to agree with BrianH. I have a 98 ZX-7R. Back in the day, this bike could knock off 0 - 100 MPH in 7.2 seconds. A newer CBR-600F4 these days is probably much quicker than that. Just to put into perspective, a current 600cc bike will dip into the high 10's or low 11's @ 124 - 130 MPH. He may have been playing around. I am sure your STi is quick, but most sportbikes are simpy fast.

    yeah he left it in high gear. unless it wasn't that bike or he didnt even get on it. my 01 zx600r ninja does high 10s a 130. ull need 450-500whp to keep up with a newer 600. but not all those bike are that fast. older 500 and 600s from the mid early 90s were low 13 high 12sec bikes.

    Also keep in mind he said it's a F4, so it's not exactly a newer 600. They went from the F4 to the F4i, and now the the 600RR.



    600cc bike's aren't that fast from 80 mph rolls. From 60 mph, my srt will walk my friends fz6 witch is a low 11'sec @ 120+ mph bike. When the speeds get up over 100 mph there airodynamic's kick them in the ass, and the smaller bikes can't make up for it.

    Now the same bike that I can beat from 60, if we race from 40 with him in 1st gear. He'll pull the front tire slightly, and f-ing take off while I sit there spinning. And he'll get some much ground on me before I hook I can't make it up.

    How much power is a stg 2 good for? I bet he was on it and you go a ligit win against a bike. Just don't run him from a stop. The slower you start from the more his weight advantage will help him.

    I'm looking forward to my friend getting his new 06 GSXR-600 broke in, so I can see how my srt can do against him from a roll. I'll try to get it on video when we do it.

    You'll be fine, you're in an SRT-4 yo!

    I hope you guys are trapping 120+, because if not you're full of it or are going against very poor riders.

    You don't really have to trap that fast to beat a 600cc bike from a roll. They can trap 125 mph in the 1/4 yes, but there running 103 + in the 1/8.

    There are plenty of srt's the run mid to high 11's at 121 is mph, but only trap 96 or so in the 1/8, so there gaining 25 mph on the back half. and the bike is only gaining 22 or so. It's that differance that will make them a very good race from a roll. Even though the bike has a full sec on them in the 1/4.

    Bike's are about as areodynamic as a brick, and the faster you go, the more it will hurt them. You have a really good chance against a 600cc bike from a 80 mph roll.

    My wagon is just about as quick as your S2 Sti and i can tell you i've ridden my cousins CBR 600 and there is no way my wagon is as quick as his 600.


    race him without downshifting just like he didn't downshift and you'll get a real result.

    The F4 is a carb'd version of the F4i and both are slower than the R6. I can tell you from experience that if you short shift those CBR's you will lose to quick cars, my F4i doesn't hit it's max torque until 8k RPM and peak HP around 13k RPM.

    My buddy has an sv1000 and raced a Stage 2 sti from a roll... He said from 60-105 he pulled about 7 cars and then he couldn't pull away after that. I don't know how his bike compares to a 600F4, but that's the story from the bikers end...

    if a stage 2 sti can run under 11.5 then I guess I would believe that. I had an F4i and my STI in a straight line has no chance.
