Purchasing a 2008 FZ6

Hi there, im looking at a 2008 FZ6 with only 6000 kms on it and have a couple questions.

1. Whats the RPM at say 60 mph with stock gearing and with +1F -1R?

2. Is the bottom end torque really that bad as some people make it out to be? Being winter here i have no option to test ride.

A long time ago i owned a 1986 Yamaha Maxim X 750 and that had a peaky power curve. Redlined at 10k and power didnt come on until around 6k. I suspect the same sort of thing from the FZ6? They have similar power numbers. I do realize the Fazer redlines at a higher (14k) rpm.

BTW im 6'4" and 210 lbs. Think i will fit?
