jr 50 or a pw50 1 gear no clutch and they have a throttle pin you can wind in or wind out to make it where they can't give it to much gas. plus they offer training wheels.

pw50 with training wheels i think is the best bet. buy used so when you go to resell you dont take the hit

She's great on a bike. And yes she is showing alot of interest in the bikes more than the four wheeler. She had a little power wheel when she was smaller but outgrew it quickly. And no I am not saying I think she is ready for a real one because she outgrew her power wheels.

+1 here for the pw & jr's if I recall correctly the seat height is a bit lower than ttr/ xr , & make sure you start her out in a LARGE open area with no trees, shrubs... etc. & take a mountain bike or something to ride behind so you can keep up with her ( speaking from exp. chasing a kid on a 50 around all day gets old), remote kill switches are also available & prolly a good idea for a 4yo.

Good Luck!!
