I need some advice and help.

My best friend really wants to buy a motorcycle. She has an interest in the kind that look a lot like dirtbikes but are street legal. I really do not know anything when it comes to these style bikes. What are the best brands? What is a good engine size? and anything else I may need to know to help her with her purchase.... thanks

The yamaha WR250 looks seksy. but a 250 engine? she wont fly for that. I told her to just get a cheap ninja 250 since she wants a bike so bad. I think her exact words were " *uck no I wont be caught riding a wimpy 250 anything". So might have to find one with a bigger engine size. Plus i want to borrow it a lot and have fun with it so bigger is better.
