What about a Honda VFR Interceptor
I think there pretty cool being a V4
There is talk of them going to a 1000.

Should be a decent selection of used ones too, as they have been making them forever.

I am 6' 3" 250lbs and my old gsxr 750 was the most comfortable and roomy bike I have ridden. My R1 is really comfortable, too. The R6...not so much. It is waaaay too small. The height is good (I think one of the highest sitting bikes out there). I even pushed the clipons forward and adjusted the rear sets. Still feels very bad.
