I don't think 10 hours is adequate to justify jumping to a literbike as a first. Most people wait a few seasons, and some never make the jump as they are happy with the 600 class. Is it impossible to start on a literbike? No, people have done it. It still doesn't make it a good idea. Get a 600 from one of the big four, it'll be plenty and will feel (and be) more powerful than your buddy's Katana.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
