I had a buddy who was about your size who bought an 2006 919 brand new... a few years later he got a Wee Strom for the increased leg room.
I had a vstrom 650, and now the 919, and I'm 6'3. I find the 919 to have plenty of space, and in the city I find it to be much easier to manouver that the Vstrom was. It's weight is more compact, and I seem to have better leverage on it. I'm a bit surprised how comfortable I am on it, actually.
