Here in Germany itīs sometimes similar, but not that harsh, if you just go for it!
If you are already experienced in biking, Iīd say you should go for something in the middle range - something like a 600 bike!
They are pretty strong fellows, but still not to big a jump!
Actually I stay with these bikes - I have a KLR 650 Tengai (which I rode in Australia either - itīs an excellent bike - even for light to medium offroad (not motocross) - when you are big enough to reach the ground) and a Honda Revere NTV 650 - excellent naked-road-bike, suitable for anything from cruising to corner-hunting.
Go in a shop, tell them you want a bike to suit you and start with - "If it is a 250 shadow you want to sell me, youīd better tell me first and stop wasting my time!"
Then tell them what you think (like. a 600 street bike with around 50 hp - or whatever you want).
Iīd reckon itīs to much to go for a 1200cc unless you can trust yourself to be absolutely controlled for the first half year!
...and as you are a motorbiker I wouldnīt bet a penny ;-)
Donīt neccesarily take a new one, when you are already peeping at a bigger bike - take a used one as someone already said, sell it when you feel like grown out of it and buy what you where looking for!
Iīll stick to my bikes - "burning" (as we call it in German) male bikers away (meaning to be just faster, better and deeper down in corners) with less good (not as powerful) bikes makes a hell lot more fun - especially with their very surprised faces when you pull down your helmet ;-)
