My vote is a GSXR750.
Almost as light as a 600, almost as much power as a 1000. It's the perfect blend of power and agility. Plus parts are available since, it has the same frame and many parts as a 600. (not so much internal parts but things like water pump, fuel pump, etc.)
I had a former racebike 750 that already had all the go fast goodies, rearsets, traxxion dynamic fork internals, penske rear shock, race body work, etc.
It was cheap, fast, bullet proof and cheap.
It had the added benefit that when I transferred the title, it was titled "off road only" which meant there was no presumptive tax. It cost like, $35 to get it transferred.

What bike you get for the track isn't as important as setting goals for why you want to go there. For me, it isn't about going fast or reducing elapsed time, as I have zero intention of ever going racing, but to learn skills to make myself a better rider on the streets. Plus to have some fun out there.

SV is great but does require some prep if you're starting out stock. Just about any of the SS is track ready. For a first one, I wouldn't buy something too expensive. K4/K5 gixxers are a good bet. If you want a later model, '09+ ZX6 come stock with BPF and can be had for cheap, especially now that the new 636 is out. 750cc would be great, but the extra power is of no consequence to a noob, unless you're very talented, learn quick and go often. I prefer 600's lesser power to keep my noobie out of trouble.
