Triumph Speed Triple, Aprilia Tuono, Yamaha FZ1, Ducati Multistrada, Kawasaki Z1000 or ZRX1200. All are quick, have standard seating positions and would fit you pretty well as they are all bigger bikes. Personally I think they are all good-looking....even the Multistrada...well, in black anyway if you don't look at it from the front....
I'm 6'7" 36" inseam & ride a Uly. Plenty of legroom on that one. There are a lot of other bikes that fit these days though. I'm surprised how comfortable most sportbikes feel these days, they didn't used to. Try a ZX14.
Ducati MultiStrada, Yamaha FJR, Triumph ST, Suzuki 'Busa (dairyland insurance rates it as a sport tour bike), BMW R1200ST- all are great rides and, from an insurance agent point of view, cheap to insure. A newer bike that is old school cool but new school tech- the Ducati sport classic GT model. I just rode one and it will be my next bike. But I like old school (see the motor) looks.
BTW, you qualified saying no touring. Not Sport-tour. Take the bags off of any of these or just don't order the bags in the first place.
I'm 6-3 w/ a 36 inch inseam and ride an FJR. No problem with legroom or sore knees. Pretty quick bike too. Not a ZX-14 by any means, but it can get out of its own way. Also, relatively cheap insurance, low maintenance and even runs fine on 87 octane gas.
I've got a friend who's 6-3 with long legs and he rides a R1150RT with the hiway pegs mounted on the cylinder heads. When we're out on the open road he kicks back like a Harley-dude. However, no one would describe a boxer as "quick."
The Buell Ulysses is mighty tall as is the KTM. At 5-10 I was totally tippy-toe on the Uly.
I too have a vertical impediment (6'3" with a 34" inseam) when it comes to bikes. I too have owned two BMWs before I purchased my Triumph Daytona 955I. It fits tall riders, and has proven itself very reliable, comfortable, and extremely agile. I have logged 8 hour trips with tail and tank bags, with ease and comfort. Great styling, single sided swingarm, awsome exhaust note, and still rare enough that there won't be a sea of them at your local bike night. The only drawback I can think of is since Triumph is far from the revenue mainstream of the Japanese motorcycles, you have to hunt a little for aftermarket accessories. Other than that, check out the MO article on the Daytona 955i, and check one out at your local dealer!
+1 for the Daytona 955i. I'm 6'3" w/ 33-34 inseam and 200lbs. I did put some cycle-cat bar risers on. I find the bike to be comfy, however, if you wear liners in your leathers or jeans under an aerostitch you will find the bend at the knee a bit tight. I put 3/4" of memory foam in my stock seat and it helps a bunch. I suppose a sheepskin pad would do the same.
The Buell Uly is also a kick and tons of leg room.
I'm 6'2' with a 36" inseam. i have a Ducati Monster with the ride height set to max. Fits me fine. I've ridden a Buell Ulysses, Lightning Long, and Speed triple. all those fit good too. I would also recomend the new Triumph ST.
