You should ride one. Im 5 7 and can handle the bike so much better than my last bike. Which was a touring bike. The saddle was also much thinner which helps. It isn't all a number.

I agree. I'm 5 9 and I don't even think about the height anymore. Most bikes just seem super short in comparison now.

I Ride: '13 Hyperstrada, '06 DR650, 2017 KTM 690 Duke
Most reviews quote something just over 33 inches. Maybe 33.2 or 33.5 "
Not positive.

I'm only 5'6" and get along fine on my Hyper Strada. Remember, the HyperMotard is a lot taller.

I'm used to Dirt and Dual Sport bikes so to me, the Hyperstrada is quite low.
It's also narrow, which makes getting feet down easier. Also, a big plus is how light and well balanced the bike is.

Paddling it backwards and even on off camber ground, it's not bad at all for this short guy.

Of course that said, my KTM Duke 690 is at least an inch lower, like 32" or so ... and 70 lbs. lighter than Hyperstrada. But the Hyperstrada is the better bike to ride ... in every way. (IMO)

Forgot to mention, I'm on the standard hypermotard, not the strada. Again, I have no issues with the height.

I'm 5'6" & quite comfortable on my 2016 939 strada. I brought the bike in NZ as a 2nd hand Japanese import.
I've just realized it has performance embossed into that seat where it transitions to the pillion seat. Would this be the standard seat?

Hyper is kinda funny. It's got an insane seat height on the SP (over 35 inches) but also is kinda small and looks funny with a big person on it like myself.
