I am 6-4, and the current crop of sport bikes is too cramped for me. Not to mention it has been a long time since I saw 200 on the scale.

Also consider insurance costs, especially for a new rider. Anything labeled as a standard is a bunch cheaper than a sport. My 1200 Bandit costs $32 a month for full everything, plus medical.

May want to look at the Katanas also, a little more power than the GS500, altho for a beginner it would be fine. That or the Ninja 500, or the SV's.
