I havent ridden a 600 yet but I do have clipons on my 650 now. Steering is different. With big bars you can just manhandle the bars and the bike will tip in. With clip ons you have to brace yourself a bit, lean more and push the bars more. You def have to commit more to lines and turns. The upside is instead of feeling like you are perched on top of the bike and kind of just along for the ride, you feel more connected and integrated. I took my bike out to the twisties a few weeks back I loved it.
Again I havent ridden a 600 but I feel like for the street something with more low end + midrange torque would be better. 650 is OK in that regard but it gets really shakey and juddery around ~3-4K. I think the Ninja 1000 would be a good upgrade... shame it's so damn ugly though.

My bike is REALLY confused
