Welcome aboard. Can't say I've ever reached 6 feet in my life but, unless you have an enormous inseam, the Versys should not feel too small, especially the V-1000. I'm 5' 10" with a 29 inch inseam and the V-650 was a bit tall until I lowered the suspension. Now it's acceptable. But I doubt you could make the cockpit any more expansive than it is without a lot of work and expense, if even then.
If you're looking to stay in the 650cc range and the V-650 strikes you as being too small I would suggest (begging forgiveness for the heresy) exploring the V-Strom 650. The cockpit is roomier and it's longer and heavier and the saddle is farther off the ground as I recall. Its manners are more like a grand touring vehicle than a sports car but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. My two cents.
