I think i've seen a picture of someone 6 feet tall or 5"10-12, seemed like the bike was suitable for them

You will but your legs may be a little compacted, to be honest your best to sit on one and decide from there. Most people your size look at the 690 if their license allows it.

I think that at 6" you shouldn't have a problem. While you are tall, you are still within the normal range of height I think. Test it out to make sure, but I don't think you have anything to worry about.

@ gpaul, if you find a 390 on which to sit. Please let us know your opinions.

I'm just worried about the shape of the tank which locks your knees against it. I'm in the process of getting my motorcycle gear together then will most definitely arrange a test ride and post my impressions here.

I didn't think there were big differences in size between the different Duke models. Are the dimensions really that different? Having your knees against the tank can help you to get more grip on the bike, so i don't see it necessarily as a bad thing.

you could always move the rearsets if you feel your knees are too close. It won't even affect your suspension geometry too bad if at all...
