    I would steer away from the 4cyl LAMS bikes.
    They tend to have completely hamstrung torque delivery.

      Last I checked the FZ6Rs were only limited by a throttle restrictor. Happy to be corrected.

      As for the rest, I kind of agree, though the smaller 4cyl LAMS (mc22 etc) bikes are still a riot.

        Being unable to go full throttle on a large(ISH) 4 cyl is criminal. The 600CC 4cyl LAMS bikes are restricted through a variety of measures be it throttle restrictor, fueling or otherwise.
        Regardless, it takes a useful engine and turns it into a joyless disappointment.

        250 4cyls are great because they can be used as intended. They aren't any less slow but being able to use full throttle and wind that little sewing machine out is the whole point of "more cylinders = betterer".

          The best bit of advice I got was go down the bike shops and sit on them put your feet on the pegs and hands on the bars and see if you feel comfortable.
          I could say go for a Vstrom , Versys, MT07 Tracer or a CB500X all these are upright bikes but they may not work for you if you cant through you leg over it.
          Go out and have a look its half the fun
          I personally went the Versys 650L because it felt right if it proves to be the wrong choice I will sell it and get something else.
