What are the main differences besides the fact that the i900 auto alarms itself.

Looking at their website, it seems that the extra 100 bucks goes towards the RFID thing, which basically activates/deactivates the alarm whenever the alarm senses the reciever (your remote) is near. Guess that would remove the embarrassment of accidently setting off your own alarm system, and having the cops come after, and the beat you senseless for hours, then have you hospitalized which will cost you millions of dollars in hospital bills. Seems like a good extra to have :)

lol. People do that with their cars everyday, or at least I do. Not worth the extra $100 unless your not used to it.

I have owned both alarms.

My current GSXR has the RFID i900 one.

I got it for $300 after talking down the guy in price, new at my local motorcycle shop.

It auto arms itself basically, when I take the key out it arms.

Thats basically ALL thats different, the keychain and the alarm has RFID chip in them.

Its really nice though, you can't set it off accidentally because when the receiver on your key is near the bike it knows its you..

its really wierd how it works, I can be next to it and the garage door shutting can set the parimeter alarm off, but me standing next to it doesn't..
its like a genius alarm ;D

Its better than the previous one imo because the receiver is better in looks and functionality I believe, and arming the alarm isn't hard but being able to just get on without having to disarm it is nice. I've never had an accidentally set off as i havent got on my bike w/out keys before

I can get a i900 for $340 with the accessories but I can get the i600se new for 200 with all the accessories as well. Just doesn't seem like money well spent. Takes a half a second to push a button to lock and unlock. I think you guys just want it cause its the newest one :headshake.

I guess the 600 & 900 have the same range. I know the 900 sure advertises a long range. Probably open and clear line of sight. 600 probably says same range.

I found the passive arming where you turn the bike off and it automaticly arms a pain at times because if you are going to work on or hang around the bike you have to change the configuration.

Yeah I emailed Scorpio and they said the only difference is the auto alarm feature and the i900 allows you to override the system with a code if you lose your remote. I'll stick with the i600 for now. I can always upgrade later. They seem to hold their value well.
