^That is me.
I am 6'6" tall, 36" inseam, and I weigh 250lbs.
And I love riding my Rebel.
My only alteration was raising the handlebars. That is it.
I have had my Rebel going 81mph, and I cruse at 65mph with ease, unless I hit a terrific headwind.

So if you are under this size ^ then I would say you could make the Rebel work for you.

You can never be too tall if you are willing to make the bike fit you. Some people call it modifying. Some call it customizing.
Just adapt and over come. LOL
Check this out and see if it get the wheels turning.

I moved my forward controls forward 10 inches. It works for me. LOL
