Smile 6 Footers

Hi all, Is any member over six feet tall? I want to know if I'll fit on it.
I'm 6'2" and the CBR250R ticks all my boxes. Nearest Honda dealer is quite a distance away. So I don't want to waste time/money seeing the bike if I'm too big. Many thanks, Archie.

I'm 6'1" and I find it very comfortable. It's quite a big bike for a 250.

No probs here, I'm 6foot6 and I find this bike to be a GOOD fit for tall people.

6'-4" here and I'm happy with the fit of my cbr250r. Most of my height comes from legs, so my knees are bent a little too tight for comfort, but I'm used to that from most of the motorcycles I've owned, and a little Aleve before a longer ride will take care of the aching that comes from it.

6'2" here does fine for me

Would look at the Kawi 300 or wait a few days to see what Honda will do Nov 12th the will show the new product line up. A few days wait could really help avoid buyers remorse

Hi Nithesh,
Thank you for taking the time and trouble of posting a pic. I'm the same build as you so very helpful. I live near Kettering UK. This will be my first proper bike when I pass my test soon, aged 46 but don't tell anyone! LOL. Safe riding, Archie.
