If you get the 599, you won't be getting away from carbs. I think you should keep the ZRX and get another bike for the track.

The Bandit 1250 (GSX1250FA) is listed as a 2011 model so no overlap (at least in the US market).

I was thinking about picking one up a while back (a 1200). When I found out you had to remove the carbs to change the air filter, I said no thanks.

As an owner of an ST1100, I consider it much more of a touring bike than a sport bike, probably 80% touring, 20% sport.

I've never owned, but have ridden a first gen FZ1. Wow, what a great bike! I would think it would be hard to rode something with a lot less power after being used ti what the FZ1 has.

The 750 is a great two-up bike - especially with the backrest/rack and does have a very smooth motor. The later model Nighthawks came in 250 (up to 2008) and 750 (91-03).
