Welcome!

The versys 650 is only half an inch higher at 33inches errrr I mean 83.8cm
However the Versys X is 70lbs lighter... err i mean 5 stone (32kg)
The Versys 300X should be perfectly suited to her height depending on how comfortable she is.

other options could be Yamaha Xt250, Suzuki DR200se, Honda CRF230L (the new 250L is taller) or if not riding dirt get a small sport bike!

We started looking at the CB500X (We'll be doing some gravel/dirt road riding, and a lot of multiple days riding) and now with that new and small Versys we just really don't know. Next week we're going to test drive a few (the xt250 and the crf250l are among them) and she'll make her mind

At 5' 6" its a challenge to saddle the Versys , but for seasoned riders it should be okay or else get a lowering kit which will reduce the height by 1"
