I am 6' and I was a bit cramped on the standard, between seat and pegs, although I believe the seat was in the lowest position. So I would advise if you can take a test ride if you can, even if you have to travel a bit to do it.
I took a test ride on the std, the only bike they had. The seat in the low position was ridiculously cramped and I'm only 5' 11" with a 29.5" inseam!

I have read the R doesn't have much more seat to peg difference...
