All bikes are dangerous, its the nature of the sport/commute.
With your size finding a sportbike that fits will be tough. I would look at older sportbikes that are at least a 1000cc. They are still fast, but you control the throttle. They are all the same til you get up in the RPM range, then the power difference is felt.
The older sportbikes, 1000cc and up, are a bit bigger physically. The only way to find out what fits and what is comfortable to you is to try them out. Thats the tough part. You may want to go to a bike night in your area. Talk to riders, explain your situation. I am sure they would let you sit on their bikes, may not, but never hurt to try.
