The bike will mostly be for street riding and track once in a while

R6's are all over the tracks. Parts and knowledge will be plentiful.

Most liter bikes will break every speed limit in the country in first gear. That power can be intoxicating, and get you into trouble quickly. Only reason I got a liter bike over a 600 is I live at altitude and as a result am down about 40hp vs sea level. It still is scary over 10k rpm, especially with no straight roads.

Plus an R6 will be less expensive.

I've gone the other way. After decades of riding solely literbikes for personal use (test riding I will throw a leg over anything that gets the pay check signed :D) both my wife and I are both using R6's as our main Track Bikes. So much easier to ride both physically and mentally, way cheaper on tires too! We still have a 1000RR, RC51 etc and a nasty ZX-10R as well, but the R6's get all the attention now.
