You should seriously consider an ER6 or Ninja 650 at your height. Motorcycling is difficult and dangerous enough without worrying about falling over. I would say it's actually a safety issue. I love my Versys but only because it fit me better than most bikes (Im 6 foot 1). If you do get The Versys do the lowering before you ride it, it makes a big difference and will make it easier and safer for you. Just my opinion. I would never ride a bike on public roads if I could only touch my toes.
