well....

let me know your size and experience. some petite gals can handle a powerfull machine and other cannot. It is all up to the individual.
I think starting out with a 250cc (ie. the Kawasaki Ninja) would be great. But you might be bored of it, so the next progressive step up would be a 500cc, also by kawasaki.
I would not recommend getting a 600cc yet unless you are above 5 foot 5 inches.
this is my two cents.

hey why do kawasakis not appeal to you?
these are good entry level sport bikes for beginners. You are only a newbie just like most of us, so it doesn't really matter what you ride on.
So what do you like, huh? honda's or buells ?

Maybe if you're in town, I can take you out for a 'ride' on me. ops. I mean my CBR F4i.

Look for a used Suzuki Bandit 400. Great bike for petite people, Asian girls or otherwise. No plastic to break when you drop it and great handling, power and brakes. Put a Cafe fairing on it and it is fun to tour on. Might never outgrow it.

add the honda cb-1 to that list as well. el bandito had a cool ducati monster look (though the monster wasn't out yet). but the cb-1 has a modern ujm look that fits it well. btw, don't confuse the 400cc 4-cylinder cb-1 with the later cb1000.

the aprilia rs50 maybe...

since you didn't ask about the cb-1, no bandit pics for you!!!

hondacb1.com
a cb-1 owner's site
you can order an artice here on how the cb-1 compares to the bandit
cb-1 pics
more pics

a surprise

btw, cb-1 pics are easier to find, the bike was huge everywhere else in the world.

What about an early 90's CBR The seat hight is lower than the current models. There are also the early 90's Yamahas. I beleive they were called Genesis in 600cc or 400cc. All are good choices if you really have to have a bike with a full fairing. Katanas would also fit in there.

Going with a standard or naked bike like the bandit or CB is a good idea. There isnt a fairing to break when you drop it. Dont forget the riding gear and an MSF course also.
