I would like to know the best all-around sportbike for a 6'2 rider (32-33" inseam)?
I would like to stay in the 600-750cc range.
Thanks.

Honda VFR might fit the bill.

Yes, I did in fact just recommend a Honda.

zx6e, some zx6r's, vfrs, f2/3's katana 600, new gsxr's.

avoid fzr4/6, old gsxr's and zx7's.

or, don't worry about and get used to keeping your legs bent.

My faith in Spitfire has been *somewhat* restored. :D

For all-around capabilities in the 600-750cc range, I think it would be difficult to best the VFR, although the 98+ models are 782cc (or is it 781?).

I'm 6'1" and the VFR is a great fit for me. Other bikes such as 600 Ninja's aren't too bad, but the smaller displacement (like say an EX-500) are horrible... The VFR is also Honda easy to ride...

Does it matter though? I mean, everyone knows that Honda's are underpowered. :D :D :D :D

I'm me again.
