Advice on First sportsbike

Hi everyone, I'm new to street bikes and bikes in general I've only ridden dirt bikes a couple times here and there, never anything too serious, but it comes pretty naturally to me. My cousin let me ride his 07 fz1000 for about twenty mins and I got pretty hooked. I'm going to book myself into a safe driving class come springtime and get my motorcycle licence. So here is my dilemma, I can buy either my cousins yamaha fz1000 or a friends kawasaki er-650n for essentially the same price. I'm 20, 6'0, 175lbs pretty athletic. My question for you guys is if you think that I'll get bored riding on the 650cc pretty quickly and want to upgrade by the next season. As I am a student, I want to buy one bike that's going to last me for a while, and I don't want to buy the 650 wishing I would have bought the 1000. The kind of driving I'll be doing is mostly in town, a 15k commute to work (mostly highway) and twice a year an 800km ride, most likely broken up over a few days
