Newbie shorty

I beleive that the Kawasaki Ninja 500R has one of the lowest seat heights in sportbikedom. Plus, it's a great beginner bike.

Although at 5'0, you'll still be on your toes at a stop.

I second that - works great for tall people too (I'm 6'4") - but it is a low bike. Its plenty powerful - but not too much. I've yet to put the bike in a situation that scared me, but whenever I need to escape something, it winds up and moves out. G'luck shopping and welcome.

zzr600 is pretty low. My wife is 5'3" and gets flat foorted.

Decent bike too. Not cutting edge but plenty fast.
