I'd match something to your front tire. Don't just throw something on the back and expect it to work. 180/55-17 is the tire size I would run, it is stock.

What tire do you have on the front?

Michelin PP and the 2CT have alot of good reviews on them.

If you're asking about what size to get, i assume it's because you want to consider something larger than the stock 180, and are asking if you should get a 190 instead. I think for a 600, a 180 is more than enough so you can keep the bike nimble on the twisties.
