There are several bikes like the SV 650/1000, Bandit 1200, VFR FZ1/FZ6 and others that offer performance and ergonomics, it's just a question of getting to see each one and feeling out what you'd like.
I don't think they are excellent "sportbikes" in my opinion, but for all around use they may be better choices than full on sport bikes.
