Commuting bike for tall person

Goodevning! Im in search for a comuting street" bike, should be comfortable for me who's 6.2" and around 80kg. My budget hits 2000 pounds and i prefer low performance and low insurance costs. Not sure wether i need anything kitted, perhaps windshield? 

not sure on what size i want to actually buy... its my first bike. i have tried a yamaha ybr250 and did really like the look of it. Low tank, sporty and comfy seat. Havent found one of those to buy so gotta have other options. Edit: perhaps a honda valadero 125 xl? idealy i look for
- low mpg
- power at low rev 
- low tank (dont like the feeling of having a bulk infront of my croch)
- comfy for an eventual 30 mile ride.  Though daily comute is 6 miles. 
- low insurance costs

Will mostly comute to the local store and gym, and perhaps go on the country road. very short trips on highways could happen, so i still like to feel that it has SOME power. Been taking lessons on a bmw f650 until my license, and i liked it too, cant afford one though!

Bike choice

Have a look at the Honda Transalp. It should be tall enough for you, they are economical, very reliable and you should get one within your buget.
