One "problem" with the S as a beginner bike, is that the sporty ergos and the fairing do seem to encourage speed (probably not always a good thing). I have found the bike to be quite forgiving overall, but I also do have the advantage of being almost 6'3" which is helpful to get a solid foot on the ground at walking speed when necessary.

Seat height at rest doesn't dictate seat to peg and seat to bar relationships. Those are the TRUE ergonomic measurements you should be aware of.
