klr 250 or super sherpa

Was needing opinions on what to get my wife to ride. Choices are a klr 250 a super sherpa or klx 250. My klr 650 is too tall and heavy for her now. Any opinions would be appreciated.

I could be wrong but I think the Sherpa is a little shorter than the KLR250... Might be a consideration if height is an issue. Otherwise I think either bike would be excellent for your wife.

Yes, the TW200 is a good choice. Yamaha also has an XT225 that is great for smaller riders. The TW is a good choice if off road is your primary use. The XT is a little taller geared for the road work.
Both are a little smaller than the KLR 250, but I sure like the MINI ME version in the KLR!

Does it have to be a dual sport? My wife rides a tu250x, fun little bike and fuel injected.
