I think a sportbike would be a very bad idea for an hour long commute daily. First of all, the ergonomic is quite uncomfortable so it's very likely you'll end up with a sore wrist, lower back, and/or sore ass by the time you get to work. Secondly, you can't carry anything with you if you're on a bike and it'll be a bit of task if you need to dress up nicely for work. Finally, I would prefer to have some radio or music if I'm in an hour long commute daily which is quite difficult to achieve safely. Sportbikes are really good for only two things... to have fun with in the twisties or to pose in front of Starbucks.
I ride a sportbike to and from work, though not a race rep, and its one hour each way (50mi). For me, the aggressive seating (to some degree), pickup, and turning are what drew me to them and the reason I stick with them. I'm just more engaged in the driving experience, as opposed to anything where I recline (=sleep). As for comfort, the wrists and back are non-issues if you stay in shape and ride properly.
Carrying stuff is an issue, as is weather. My daily dress is business casual to semi-formal so I pack my pants/shoes/socks/tie to go in a backpack currently, though a tank or tail bag is optimal. Lunch travels along bungee'd to the bike too. With weather, I give up with precipitation and take the cage. Its just too dangerous. I don't do music, I'm too interested in what's going on around me and enjoying the riding atmosphere.
With that kind of distance, you should automatically be looking at full gear: helmet, jacket, gloves, pants, boots. If you don't, you'll be sorry one day. I'm a proponent of all leather, but I don't live in the SW where it gets REALLY hot. We get 100+ days with 90+% humidity on occassion.
