Question Trading my ER6N for FZ6

Hello everyone, I am new here and I will try to keep this short. I am a 22 year old student and owner of an ER6N for the past 7 months, I picked this bike as it was on a budget and had heard it was cheap to maintain while it provided a good experience. However, I was always in love with the sound of 4 cylinders and when even more so when it came to the FZ6! While I love my Kawi, it feels a little frittle when it comes to highway speeds above 140km/h, the suspension hurts my soul and I don't really feel at home on it as I am 185cm tall and weigh 100kg. I do about 200km every week on the freeway and use my bike as a daily commute and to my surprise, the ER6 is so freaking economical at only 4.5L/100km even when ripping through the rpms frequently. Now that I am more financially stable, I am thinking of selling it for something else.

Now for my questions: I earn 300 a month and I have the luxury to spend all of them on things I want such as trips, vehicle fuel (I also own a hyundai i30 with a 8L/100km mileage albeit I use it only 2-3 times a week) and still have more than 120-150 euro at the end of the month to spare. The plan is to collect 2.000 and then sell my bike for 2.200 (bought it at 1900 but fixed some stuff and added tires) and then buy an FZ6 S2 preferrably the faired version for 3000~ while having around 500 backup for possible repairs and then 500 more as savings.

As for the mileage I have done some research and it does not seem to be that much higher than my 2 cylinder ER6N. What I want to ask is if there is a difference when it comes to maintenance and future costs. Keep in mind that while I am a good rider with track experience on an R6, I know jack shit mechanically and had always had other people do that stuff for me. I can only take care of minor stuff such as an oil change, air pressure and minor suspension adjustments for my needs so that means for anything else I take it to the mechanic. If you agree and I proceed to buy one, what checks should I immedietly make?
