Does really cbr500r 2016 is a sportbike?!

The joy of leaning forward on superbike (like cbr600rr) is incredible but the bike with smaller engine does not feel the same but still can be closer feel to compare cruise or naked . The reason of not getting a cbr600rr or R6 are the plate and insurance pric is high. High risk motorcycles are 1500$ per year and other bikes are 450 to 650$.per year.

I been riding the ninja 300 and i was feeling blessed of the sporty feel.
Based on the site the lean body forward of ninja 300 is 23° and the cbr500r 2013 is 19° and cbr600r 2012 is 42°.
The site has not be upgraded so i can not see the lean forward degree of cbr500 2016.
I am looking for new bike and i was thinking to get the cbr500r
So my question is does cbr500r 2016 seating posting is different from 2013? Does it feel more sporty?
Is there anyway to make it more sporty?

And the reason of all this question is i ridden a CB500F (naked bike) for 5 hours and i didn't enjoy riding it at all and since the leaning forward angle of 2013 is less tham ninja 300 so the decision get harder

The cbr500r is sporty looking but it's made for comfort and not speed, you can get clip ons and rear sets to lower the angle but if you really wanna get that feeling look at the rc390, that's as close as you're gonna get to the super sport feel with this class.
