you said "can over look not rego",

Perfect bike is a TTR 125 or DRZ 125 large wheel, take your pick

cheap around 2 to 2.5k easy re- sell

forget any bike that is over 90kgs for girl that weighs 53kgs you will soon put her off dirt bikes, must be small and manageable.

if must be rego.... they are all heavier bikes
next best ER 185 , DT 175.

Agree

Started my 15yo daughter on a ttr125 big wheel. At the time she was 169cm tall (5'6") 60kg. Great bike & size until she advanced a lot and stood up more and started jumping a little at which point I had to fit bar risers and also some spring preload in the forks (a handful of washers!).

They're the perfect starter bike but just be prepared to move it on and get a larger and/or more powerful bike at the right time. My daughter only lasted 6 months on hers and is now on a 125 2T, and it was by far the safest way to teach her skills before putting her on anything taller, heavier or more powerful

The Yamaha will be pretty easy to resell. Made a profit on ours

Agree with above, great learners bike for a young woman. One model can even be registered but they are rare.

Similar boat for me, 18 year old isn't fazed about an upgrade but my 16 year old is keen for an upgrade from an XR100.

Not happy with current heavy soft options, had my share of fun wasting time with old bikes, so DT200s etc are out.

Thinking a YZ125 rec regged, lowered and maybe modify a pipe to knock a bit of the peak power off but keep the full rev range.
