The lower the price on the bike, the better. I will also be purchasing a truck and trailer which may or may not impact the budget of the bike. I just wanted some opinions.

I almost want to get a Ninja 250 or 500 and really tear the shit out of it. I'm scared to wreck a 600 due to the cost of crashing, but the 250's and 500's are great learning bikes and i've seen people crash those things over and over and they still run and keep their value. As funny as it sounds, i'd almost like to take a bike to the track, push it until I wreck it just so I'd know what its limits are on the bike as well as my own limits and go from there.

Based on the budget you posted, I stick with my opinion.
5k + 5k = 10k - 7.7k = 2.3k

that will give you a kick ass brand new zero mile bike, and you have enough money left over for track plastics, exhaust, fuel processor and misc parts for your first crash.

Dud I mention it would be a brand new bike? And a kick ass track one?

This.

Buying a bike with all of the typical race/track mods will save you a ton of grip in the long run. The time and cost to install the mods on this bike, plus the spares you would receive would make this a perfect "ready-to-ride" track setup. This route would be my personal choice if I were looking for a track-only ride. Matter of fact... I would buy this exact bike contingent on a pre-purchase inspection. It is a SMOKIN' deal.

And FWIW, I've seen other deals like this on track/race bikes... this is definitely the time to buy.

I think one of the keys here is not wanting something you are afraid of even scratching for a track day. The bike I posted is a little older but with modern ZX6 suspension and wheels. It's only $2500. That will give you some cash to spend on important stuff. Lots of examples like this around

+1 to the 675, but I almost don't want you to buy one so I will be more unique when I buy mine haha. It's a great bike and used ones can be purchased for very affordable prices. Check out Triumph675.Net

I have the EXACT same feeling about working a 250

You mentioned availability of aftermarket parts, IMO I think parts for the R6 and Gixxer 600 are probably a little more plentiful because of the popularity of the two bikes. And in the case of the gixxer, a bunch of the parts are interchangeable with the 750 and the 1000 so, theoretically, there are even MORE parts available. When I needed a couple parts for my 2000 Gix 750, I was able to use a part from a different model year 600, and a different model year 1000 to make it all good. Just something to consider.
