sv's rock!
IMO get one wo plastics. Can get one new for like 5200. The unfaired model is cheaper to buy, cheaper to insure, and will be damaged less in a mishap. In addition I believe that they also come with better gearing (stock). No plastics means virtually no damage happens in a tipover and a lot less in a wreck. Also easier to work on. Save your money and get track fairings, no fairings for the street.
I would worry about suspension mods, not cosmetic, and learn to ride the out of it without worrying about messing up your shiny nice plastics.
Good Luck!

The SV's are great bikes.
You can go either way;

Naked:

sv650


Full fairing:
sv1000



The last shot is my SV1000S, but you can do the same with the late model 650.

This might be a moot point if you already know this... but it hasn't been mentioned in this thread. The SV is a twin, the other two bikes you were considering were I-4's. Make sure you're a twin guy, not everyone likes the power delivery...
