Im 200 6'4" and I feel great on it. I actually feel like the bike is built just perfect for my height and weight. Wy legs still fit in the tank groove just right. I think the the shorter people (5'5" or shorter) are the ones that actually have the problems.
I'm 6'3 265lbs. I'm not fat, but I'm not all muscle. I have no issues with the bike. I can stay on it as long as anyone else I'm with when it comes to long ride. I'm sure I can't ride the big as hard as a lighter guy in the corners (speed wobble starts sooner the heavier the rider right?). With my strenght/weight I can throw the bike around fairly easily.
With tht being said I've been told I look like a monkey fucking a football on it. But hey, it's my 1st bike and I gota good deal on it. Maybe someday I'll get that new 1000 kawai is coming out with.
But to answer your question, I have no issues with my size for the bike. You may get some comments from people (I do at least) but they are usually from people who don't know what they are talking about
I'm 6'1" 220 right now and I find the bike is tailored for me. Just had to adjust the lever angles, but otherwise it fits me great... always feel like something's wrong now when I ride another bike. The stock suspension definitely caters to heavier riders too.
