Please girls (and guys) which bike for a lady rider with very limited gravel exp.
Also had a look at the TW 200 but its a bit pap.
Both bikes the same price with road kit fitted (R29 000)

Also researched these two bikes a while ago.
They appear to be very much the same.
So do you prefer blue or red?

If the lady has got longer legs why not consider the TT250R / TTR250 ?

There is a thead on here somewhere.
I also rode with a father/son who had these bikes, Dad on red, son on blue.

They both agreed that the blue one felt faster and that parts for blue were a lot cheaper.

Is she hot ?? 8)  Sorry .
They are almost identical , but somehow the Honda seems to be more popular .
Personally I can recommend the CRF . I had one , and it is a great little bike .
Cheap to maintain , easy to ride , and great fun in the technical stuff .

The DR200 might also be an option. Mrs Le Cap started on one. Very nice little bike. More power and much better suspensions than the TW.

I had a CRF, low seat hight and lots of torque, very confidence inspiring. It's like a little tractor, just turn the throttle and start climbing them hills  :ricky:
