I've known loads of people, men and women, that have had a Bandit 6 and the newer 650 as their first bike after passing their test.
Easy bike to ride and not overly powerful.

For your budget I would suggest an old skool Bandit 6 or 12, preferably the mk2. Get the S version with half fairing, obviously better for touring than the naked model.

This AT doesn't have to be a 1000cc + for my personal preference, anywhere between 700 and 1000cc I could live with.
Also my S10 does 53 MPG on average and that's a 1200.

It does work great. Soak a rag in very hot water and just hold it against the sticker for a few seconds, peels off easy as.
