    KTM RC 8. Very adjustable and usable power from 3k on up.

    My S1000RR fits me perfectly at 6'1. My Daytona race bike on the other hand...I just can't get comfortable on. The tank is too damn skinny.

    I'd like to add to the 750 discussion. I hate the 750 comfort wise. My 07 1000 was much more fitting. Especially with Heli clipons. The 750 makes me feel like a giant. I'm 6'2".

    Supermoto for comfort for large humans. Nothing else comes close.

    2016 for sale locally:

    “s1000r with all options. dynamic package with heated grips, DDC dynamic damping control, change ride mode on the fly. Premium package with cruise control, ride mode pro, gear shift assistant, change gears without clutching. DTC dynamic traction control.”

    Are the contents of these packages listed somewhere? I’ve heard that some of these electronic riding mode suspensions are extremely costly to maintain. True? Can you get one with electronic ride modes, but with standard suspension components?

    That is probably a question best asked on Adv or your yankee beemers group. I donít think anyone here owns one.

    Re: Track bikes for large humans?

    In my-admittedly limited-experience shopping BMWs, no, you cannot get machines without all the "premium packages" as dealers simply do not stock them. Seemed to be the case with all the R bikes I shopped. I've seen a couple 2nd hand non-local on CL or ADV-rider. But they were rare.

    My opinion is that no dealer wants to stock anything but fully loaded bikes as I suspect those have the greatest margin.
