Go for the Kat. Nuttin' like experience with more weight/more power. Ride it long enough to get comfortable with it, then you'll know more 'bout what you want if you get a new one down the road. You'll also be more familiar with the weight, and stand less chance of dropping a new one in a parking lot mishap, etc.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.
'Course, if there's a hot tub at the end of a long day in the saddle, who am I to complain?
