As long as you're responsible, you can start off in a supersport. Most people who buy R1's, GSXR1000's, ect are not people who can make that bike do even 15% of its potential. Someone who knows this would be better able to learn the bike.
Besides, its a sv650, not a power monster. As long as you dont do anything stupid at high speeds or high rpms, you'll be more than fine. If you do, then you're just asking for it, and you know it.
hyena, get whatever makes you comfortable. Keep in mind most motorcycle sellers (dealers adn private party) are out to make a buck and when they find out it's your first bike, they're gonna try and mind-rape you.
Keep asking this forum ANY questions you have, and whether members agree or disagree, you'll get information to base your decision- which is whats important.
