    I vote for the SV too. If I was spending that much, that's what I'd look for.

    I'd say try and find a cbr600 f3 or maybe an f4, I had a 2000 F4 and i loved that bike. Super confortable, and had pretty good power too.

    I just picked up an 84 Honda Magna V65 for $2500. It's maybe a little older than your looking for, but it's got a 105 RWHP 1100cc V4 engine, really fun, fast bike. I was also looking at a Yamaha XS1100 for a similar price, similar kind of bike, but with an inline 4 instead of a V4. Just throwing those out there. They're more cruiser-style bikes than sportbikes.

    A friend of mine I go riding with just recently got a brand-new V-Strom DL650, same engine as the SV650, as far as I know, and he really loves that bike.
