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.

2006 Harley Davidson V-Rod Street Rod
2003 Honda GL1800 Goldwing
2001 Yamaha YZ250

(Still trying to make room for theCBR 250!)

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

He knows not where he's going, for the road it will decide, it's not the destination, but the glory of the ride.

i'm 6'2" and the bike fits beautifully.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

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.
