I'm 173cm, and Brutie fits me perfectly. I think it might be too small for you, but try it before you buy it. There's no other way to know it for sure.

At 6'2" i still feel like there is plenty of room to move around on the bike. When in doubt, try one out, just like wekkuli said

I can't say I agree. I'm 6'0 and my legs fit pretty snug in under the tank. You'd have to try it. I'm considering getting new rear-sets but have gotten mixed reviews as to how much lower they will go. Your best bet is to just try it on for size.

I am 6 foot 2 inches and the fit was a little cramped with the stock pegs. I installed Gilles rear sets and have them set in the full rearward and lowest position and that helped. It's a cozy fit but it works fine for my daily commute and anything up to say a couple of hours, for me. Everyone is a wee bit different when it comes to length of legs and arms no matter how tall we are, so you should definitely ride one before you buy one. You likely have size 12 or larger feet too, and that will be snug with the stock set up. Again, the Gilles helped here with the adjustable shifter. The brake pedal has some adjustment and I was able to get that to fit fine as well. I have size 12 dogs.

I hope the bike fits! It's a great bike and a ball of fun!!! Good luck!

I should have qualified it as well. I have aftermarket rearsets that allow for the room to move around. They are as far back, and as far down as possible. If you do get an MV, you won't be sorry!

I agree with Gus. I'm 5'11" and have the foot controls adjusted to give me as much room as possible (size 11 shoe). If I was any taller I think the bike might be to small. You've got to ride one and see for yourself. If you decide it's an OK fit you will love this bike.
