the only bike in my opinion that could be a better choice than the sv-s is the non-faired sv650 (non-s). you want to at least replace the fairing when you go to the track. the non-s had the fairing off, so you can through a race upper (and lower if need) on it and still have saved enough cash to buy some clip-ons and maybe fork springs. for your size, i would recommend replacing the shock with a penske/fox or at least a le, traxxion, race-tech, curcuit 1 gsxr unit. and definitely get at least fork springs.
i think at your height you'd find the cheaper fzr400's to be very small. and hawk's (i.e honda nt650 88-90 or so) aren't that much cheaper than an sv650.
good luck, i know you'll have fun with it.
