my first bike

I ve been on a few street bikes and a lot of dirt bikes. Im by no means an experienced rider. Im 5'9" 280lbs most of it is bulk i do have a gut. I think i should i get a 600 but i worry about needing the extra torque that a 1000 would offer. What would yall recommend.

I've owned three of them since 2009 and weigh 140 lbs. I idle around in top gear and get 45 mpg.
On a 2007 600 I owned first, I shifted up and down at every slight grade and got 35 mpg.
