The 2013 bikes have a longer rider seat and a shorter passenger seat, solving the problem you describe above. To me, 5 foot 10, the 2010-12 are perfect and when I test rode this bike I liked that passenger seat edge to keep me from flying off the bike when twisting the throttle and experiencing its rocket-like acceleration.
I would say: go for it if you want to ride anything else other than the interstate highways. Everyone has a different definition of what makes them smile when riding. To me, the Multistrada (and other bikes with the same riding ergonomics - but the Multistrada in particular) summarizes a lot of what riding is all about.
