Do I want an SV650?

Hello everyone,
I am looking at pulling the trigger on an SV650(s) for a track bike. In my stable is a 2011 Suzuki Hayabusa, 1998 Honda Valkyrie and 2005 Honda ST1300. I have never done a track day but getting the itch to do so. My 2 top choices are very different bikes. SV650 and GSXR600. I just have a feeling that the SV650 is the way to go but not entirely sure why. Pros: cheaper, naked so easier access, V twin (never had one), very positive feedback on the sv650 for many purposes. Cons (compared to GSXR650): GSXR meant to be a sport bike, more hp and torque, probably very similar to my busa just downsized.

I am guessing this is a conversation or thread that has been discussed before. I would appreciate any advice or links to threads that discuss the SV650 as a first track bike. I assume I want an SV650s, right? What would be the top priority mods for a good track bike? Any model years to look for or avoid?

Thanks all!!! I appreciate your help.
