short ladies dual sport

Does anyone have a suggestion on a dual sport bike for my wife at 5 foot 4? I ride an 08 klr that even if lowered would be too tall for her.Anyone with experience with this or suggestions welcomed.

How about a Yamaha TW200? Excellent bike for those of us with shorter legs and a good bike to start with.
