No one can answer that question but you dude.
How much do you want to spend?
Are you racing, or just riding?
Most important thing is getting proper instruction and staying within your limits. You can do that on a 1000, 600, or whatever you like.
A 600 is going to be easier to handle than a 1000 of course but I am 6 feet and 190. A 600 isn't my style.
For me, the best bike I can get my hands on makes me the most comfortable. I know I have excellent brakes and great suspension. I dont need busa power on the straights and crappy handling and stopping.
Good luck and sign up for trackday, pay attention to your instructor!
You will love it.

I have a 130hp 1050cc bike for the street, and a 65hp SV for the track. IMO, the SV is the perfect bike for those without an ego. The SV does not have any squid appeal so maybe that is why I like it. It is definitely gratifying to work on a liter bike for a lap or two as he blasts by you on the straight only to be re past going into the corners. In most cases, this lasts about 2 laps until they give in.

To answer the question at the beginning of the thread, the SV will be the perfect bike to learn on at the track. If you decide you want more grunt, you can always sell it and buy a supersport. By this time, your skill level would have increased and there is less of a chance of you binning your bike first time out..........
