Hello out there,
I am a driver from Germany and I am just before underwriting the contract for the 2005 model.( In midnight Black !!!! )
A friend of mine told me that I am to long for this bike (I'm 1,85mtr.)
But I made a testride a hole weekend and felt very well on this bike.
is there anyone out there who is as tall and has made experience with this Bike. Thx for your help.

Just figure 1 meter is almost 3 feet, so 1.8 meters is close to 6 feet.

Sven, the only thing that matters is that the bike feels good to you.
There are ways to increase the height of the bike though, if you ever feel like the bike needs to be taller.

At 6 feet, the bike should fit you just fine.

I'd say it averages out to be about $8k brand new. Some get it in the $7k range, others in the $9k range.
