Personaly I find em a bit too small. I'm 6'3". Be aware they only punt out about 47hp though they are lighter so maybe performance is on par. The Main disadvantage is that Guzzi dealers are harder to find in the UK than Triumph and the supply of aftermarket bits is much smaller. You can modify a Thruxton to your hearts content if you wish, but that Guzzi will remain more or less as the factory intended it unless you are very handy.
I love the look of that cafe Guzzi for sure. I don't care for the power being so low. But then maybe it would depend on the type of riding you do and if the ride is more comfortable, seat, legs not cramped. I do have an issue with my legs cramping up on my Thruxton, I now ride a standard Bonneville for that reason. I do miss the front brake on the thrux. I've heard the brakes work better on the Guzzi in some ride report i read a awhile back.
