Have you sat on it? Was it comfortable? If so then its not too small. I'm 6'2" and weigh about 20-fat, and I started on a CBR600F4. I have a CBR1100XX now, and just rode the F4 again the other day to get new tires for it, and forgot how comfortable it is! It actually fits me better than the XX.
Anyway, if the bike is comfortable then you're good to go. As far as it being too much power, that all depends on the rider. Ride within your limits and take it slow and you'll be fine. Do something stupid and you won't be fine. Good luck and ride safe!
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
