Advice: First Sport Bike

Hey all, new to the boards and generally to sports bikes.

I've ridden sparsely in the past, but I'm far more accustomed to dirt bikes and trail riding. With that side, I'm looking to get my first street bike and I am in need of some professional opinions.

For the time being, I'm looking into new bikes, unless a lightly used bike becomes available, I'd like to base my 'preference' of bike on a new one. I'm definitely looking in the 600-650 range, under $10,000, even more so under the $8k range preferably.

I'm definitely going to give a test run on several bikes, essentially try out all the 600 series of the major makes around. But I'd like some opinions going into the test ride. The bike is strictly a daily driver, no track time in my future.

Overall I'm interested in getting a comfortable ride, some solid power and good control.
