Here's the thing, there is a huge difference between those bikes, both in power and price.

If you really like the xb12scg or the monster I would buy a cheap beater bike to learn on for the first few months. Something that you don't mind dropping, denting, or scratching. You can get a used Kawi 250 really cheap (less than 2 grand). Take the safety class, buy a cheap used bike, get acquainted with riding, and then buy something pricy and shiny.

thank you for the prompt reply. i just viewed the 2008 kawi 250r and i think its perfect for me. i wonder when its gona be released?
The new 2008 baby Ninja is probably perfect for your learning curve. The new body style is much more modern than 2007 and earlier. The baby Ninja puts out the same power as the Buell Blast, is much lighter, way more fun to play with and the insurance will be dirt cheap.
