Had an SV650S will I be disappointed with a FZ6?

I had an SV650S and loved it until a driver cut me off and I laid it down. It ended up being totaled so I have to get another bike. I've called around looking for another sv650s but noone seems to have any or they're outrageously priced and that's the only reason they're still available. I've started to look at the Yamaha FZ6 and I have enough with the insurance check to go out and get the FZ6 right now - and I've found one at a really good price. I've heard mixed reviews about the FZ6 so I'm kinda uneasy about buying one. I mostly drive on the highways 55+ and I like the upright riding position better on the FZ but I'm still unsure. I've only had the SV for a few months so I'm still a beginner so I want to make sure the FZ6 would be a good bike for me to get or I don't know if I would be disappointed coming off the SV650S....

You'll have to find out for yourself.

The FZ6 is smoother and more powerful, and in my opinion, easier to ride. You will NOT be disappointed.

I have made this change myself and found that the FZ6 is different in the way you have to get used to the way to take off from a stop
or light you will need to rev up just a little more than with the SV650s and the feel of the bike is different. This thing rev's like I can't believe. I found that the transmission gearing is also different.
