What bike for my friend?

Recommended Posts

Just went on a ride with a large group of friends, and one of them wants a better bike. She's currently on a klx125, and we were riding a lot of fire road stuff so she was getting left in the dust (was a mixed group of bikes, a few drz400e's cr125 xr200 etc etc) and was complaining about it.

She's about 5'5" and maybe 100lbs?

Price limit of like 1300, and preferably not a 2 stroke. Limit the weight to under 220lbs probably.

i dont know what area youre in, but with that money in my area you can get a xr200, ttr225, choke up a few hundred and you can get a ttr230 or crf230

but aren't the 225's pigs?

Yep.....Yamaha lists their 230 with a wet weight of 251 lbs.  Older versions won't be much different.  CRF 230 is a couple of pounds lighter.  An XR 200 or similar probably won't be a whole lot different in weight either.
