I have been looking at the Ikon (koni) shock specs and working backwards to establish swingarm length.

Probably going to look at 200mm (8") as a starting point

I'm using Progressive Suspension 418's, meant for the Harley Big Twins. I ordered them along with an alternate spring set - the stock springs were too weak as is. It's been several years now since i did the ordering but iirc the stock were rated at 140 something or other - the new springs were 210 something or other. It actually took a full year to "break" the springs in to to get them responsive and less harsh in terms of ride. Mine are the 11.5" models. I bought them because of the offset eye mounts. Total travel is in the order of 1 1/2" useable. They are effective, i haven't lost any teeth fillings lately...
