Welcome.
Judging by your height and weight, sounds like you're ready for a cruiser!
Suzuki and Yamaha make some pretty decent 600-650cc cruisers.

Welcome to MH, always good to see more insomniacs!

Hopefully GQ will understand when I say that a Ninja 250 probably isn't your best bet due to your size. I'd hate to seem like I'm ruining the sale of a member but I think you are too big of a dude for a 250. That's just my opinion of course and many others will surely disagree.
