You also might want to check insurance prices....600cc are quite pricy compared to a 125/250/300cc bike.
And besides, whats the rush, smaller bikes can go above the limit if necessary, but isnt the first bike supposed to be about learning how to ride safely, staying out of traffics harm, improving your reflexes and being sure riding is for you ?
Get a used small displacement bike that you can re-sell a year or two later. If /when it tips over, gets bumper or what ever, your not heart broken.....
Ride safe and have fun !!
