though there were 3 years in between, I went for an F4i to a 919. My reason was primarily financial, they could be had for CHEAP! And I guess I wanted to something diff. The 919 fits my style better, I am a commuter that hits the twisties occasionally. I loved the F4i, I like the 919. There will be a big drop in features, the 919 is just stripped down, from the instrument cluster to the susp settings. I am not bashing the 919, I really like mine, but the thing doesnt even have helmet locks...
In my opinion its not an even trade, the rr is worth more, so go with the trade if you want, but take some cash too.
Again, I am just happy to have a bike, and 9er is bulletproof as stated, like mine better with the 17/44 520 conv, but we can get to that if you take the plunge ; )
