If i were you, i'd go for a Ninja ZX-6 or GSXR 650/600.
I've been riding for 2-3 years now and Hondas Fireblade (1000cc) is the only bike that gives them a good name.
The new R6 is nice, so i'd recommend that aswell, but Ninja and GSXR is your best bet as they are both big engines, sound phenomenal stock and with aftermarket exhausts such as TOCE, ATALLA, Yoshi, Akrapovich, and TWOBROS. The user interface and spedo/gear indicator/rev counter is all on display and very visable and easy to the eye. The 3 bikes ride amazing, but id test drive them before you buy. If it were me, i'd buy the R6 or GSXR. Then it'd have to be the ninja, then CBR.
Talking from experience, i've had the ZX-6R and was amazing, no flaws and same with the R6.
