AGREE with above statements X 10
IF u are determined to get 600 sportbike for first bike get an OLDER one and I mean neighborhood of 20yrs older.
Why he asks:
a. u ARE going to drop it (prob several times), hurts less on wallet and pride to do this to something that isn't as shinny.
b. 20 yrs ago they were more user friendly (didn't have quite the edge that present ones do).
This means more heads up riding position, less touchy about brakes, steering, throttle.
c. the models would be Honda F1 or F2, Yamaha FZR, Suz Gsxr, Kawi Ninja
