Stick with the 650.
6 months and 3k miles is nothing.
You still have a lot to learn IMO.

Also, the 650 has plenty of power especially after only 3k miles.
If it doesn't have enough power for you after only 3k miles, your either doing something wrong or have no fear IMO.

so you already decided on getting a supersport....

do you plan on tracking the bike?
if not, get the zx6
if you do, still get the zx6 :D
you will NEVER need the power of the zx10 for street use, or casual trackdays
though the zx10 is fun, it will also be accompanied by expensive insurance and speeding tickets


also keep in mind what you'll be using the bike for
i use my zx6r for commuting and HATE IT
but i love it for spirited riding, which is maybe 1-2 times a month :(

I've owned a liter bike, and I still love my ZZR600. A 600 is a perfect street bike and track bike. The 1000's are good for a straight line thrill, but 600's are more nimble and most people can corner faster on a 600 because of that.

Here's what you should do. Get a ZX6R and do a sprocket swap; -1/+2 or just +3 in the rear. After you open the throttle more than half way, the 600 will spin up and slide your ass back against the rear seat. Also, a 600 is more pleasant to maneuver around the streets than a liter bike because the liter has so much power it makes the bike jumpy, which can be dangerous if you're inexperienced. Think about being leaned over at low speed and accidentally bump the throttle too much; it can lead to a low side or you pinching some poop off in your undies. A 600 is more forgiving in that scenario. You just gotta look at the entire aspect of riding when choosing a bike. You know? You gotta ask yourself, "what bike will work best for the kind of riding I do?"
