The upgraded F4i is a modified F4 with numerous engine, chassis and bodywork changes. This Honda CBR600F4i has a sportier styling, such as adopting a front cowl shape and a separate type seat based on the CBR600F.

In addition, by adopting PGM-FI (electronically controlled fuel injection device), the throttle response is improved and the weight of the vehicle body is reduced to further improve the kinetic performance.

Honda's original anti-theft system "HISS (Honda Ignition Security System)" has a reinforced type combination lock, and the chip built into the original key recognizes the signal from the engine control unit. The chip that receives the signal returns a preset ID to the engine control unit, and the engine cannot be started unless the signal matches, which is an excellent effect for deterring theft.
