Default What sportbikes cater to taller riders?

Looking at other ss bikes and wanted to know which bikes cater to a person who is 6'0" and over? I myself am 6'3" so i am curious if there are any other tall riders that feel comfort on there ss bikes!

zx14 or a busa. the r1 has a farely tall seat hight but it kells on the riding position. you might want to look deeper into the touring/sporttouring arena

Default Looking at 2004 or newer

Not going with the Busa! CBR,R1,GSXR is the order i am leaning toward. I really havent sat on any of them.

The R1 is an awesome bike, and would be a very good fit for you. A Gixxer would also be a good fit, but it would have to be an '05 or older. They lowered the '06 about 1 1/2".

Ninja's in general are pretty capable for taller riders because the reach to the bars is a bit longer than many.

Busa's, R1 & R6 work well for both taller and smaller riders, CBR is definately good for taller riders, BMZ K1200S is good for all sizes .
