Recommended beginner bike for petites?

Hi, I'm new to the forums and to the whole motorcycle deal.

I am a female about 4'10" and 80lbs (petite frame) and looking for a small 250cc bike. I've been mainly looking into the Honda CBR250R and the Kawasaki Ninja 250R. Which one would be more ideal for me?

I'm already aware that my feet probably won't touch the ground flat-footed ahaha. But yeah, I'm more concerned about whether or not my weight will be an issue.

Of course, I plan to get used to the feel of a bike by starting off on a scooter and I don't really plan to take either onto the highways for ... awhile. Protective gear is always a must as well so I don't plan to be a reckless rider xD

Suggestions of other bikes are more than welcome~

Thank you!

Great choices with the Honda or Kaw. You Can lower either substantially to better fit your hight. Don't forget abut the cruisers. Some of those may fit you like a glove.

Iím about 5í4,í Iíve been looking at a Grom because Iím not ready for highway riding either. I have never ridden and saw that the Grom is small, only about 220lbs, and more manageable for smaller riders. Itís only 125cc, though. Thereís also a whole Grom community and lots of lightly used Groms for sale.
