I am 105lbs, 5'3" and I rode a ninja 250. I never timed it, but its not a bad bike. I also had a rebel 250- THAT was a dog. Granted my 250 had a full muzzy and had been jetted, but I believe that even if it were stock it would still be more powerful than that rebel. City, Freeway, twisties, wherever its great. You can be faster than all the cars, like if you needed to pass or just wanted to go. It flicks around so easy. I could have kept it for forever (I found a smokin joe for a great deal, so I snagged that) Anyway, I say go for it! Better than no bike at all, and better than the rebel. And if she eventually saves up the rest for a 500, she can sell the 250 and put that cash with it. Also she'll be able to reach the ground alot better on a 250(almost flat footed) than the 500(on the very tips of your toes). And I think that that is good for learning to ride. Don't sell the 250 short, its a cool bike.
I'M NOT A BITCH, EVERYONE WANTS TO BE ME!
