Is the Ninja 250 too small for me? [Diagram!]

I went to go look at the new Ninja 250's today and it seemed a taddddd bit small around the thy area. It wasn't anything bad but I just wanted your opinion on this. On each side of the bike, start from the bottom of the gas tank and going to the top, the tank gets wider and wider, making a sort of "cave" shape so your thys can fit in there nicely. My long legs didn't seem to do that and the end of my knee came a tad bit above the "cave" of the tank. I don't know whether this is that big of a deal or not, which is why I'm asking for your opinion. I hope this MS Paint Diagram can give you some what of an idea.

This isn't exactly how I fit on it, its just somewhat of an idea.

MS PAINT FTW

I wouldn't worry too much about that. They're a small, skinny moto. Get you one. It's a nice reliable piece that, when you decide to upgrade, has nice resale and an open market.
You will grow accustomed to the ergonomics of the bike. It's not extremely necessary to squeeze the bike either.

Edit: ride on the of your feet, not heels. this will increase "leg room"

How big? I think I missed something.
Just reread the post. I stick with my original advice. Get it and be happy.

Ahmad made a thread saying he was 6'4" and 140 lbs.
But still, he'd learn to ride comfortably on that "tiny" bike

Oops. I guess I missed that. I'm 6'5" about 225 and I've ridden my brother's 250. It's not necessarily uncomfortable, but I've been riding for a LONG time.

Completely forgot to add that information. as MateMike said, I'm 6'4. But now that I look at it.. i dont really think im that tall.. highschool nurse must have measured wrong.. I've been sticking to what she's told me since then. Im more of a 6'3. BIG DIFFERENCE, i know

Most modern SS bikes are going to feel tiny when you get on/ride them. Its when you have that "OH SH*T" moment right before you crash, that the bike will seem GIGANTIC!
