Thundercat is very good

If you think the Thundercat is big enough maybe have one of those. The Kawaski ZX6R is very similar as well. The Suzuki GSX750F is slightly bigger all round than the GSX600F so that might be worth looking for and should be within your price range.
The Yamaha TDM900/850 is a completely different bike but is quite good for the taller rider and is an excellent commuter (if a little dull compared to the above).
As always check whats out there and check the  insurance on a few bikes closer to the time and see...
