Heck... it was probably the slight air of arrogance, in the "please don't assume I'm a new rider" reply.
That being said, zxrider and meat_shield have offered sound advice, and I stand by it fully. However, in support of the SV I'd offer that it has a torquey motor, and may fit the power delivery concerns better than any other 600 class bike. But I'd also offer that the Yamaha does have really good ergos for your size, and more long term applicability (in that you can use it on the street and grow with it, as well as some track).
And all tone issues aside, you've gotten some of the best answers possible. Just in the future, please ask questions providing more specifics. These folks here will always try to help.
