If she's wanting a sport bike, Honda and Kaw are the only 250 options.

Dual sports are better first bikes IMO, so Suzuki DR200 or Yamaha XT225 come into play or Honda CRF230L. Learning the basics on grass or dirt is way better than on the street. The first 2 have been made for quite a while and have low seat height. Kawasaki made a 250 Super Sherpa (KL250) that might short enough for her to be comfortable as well. Yamaha replaced the XT225 with a 250 in last year or two not sure if it got taller or not. Last would be the odd TW200 by yamaha.

Old Mechanic has a interesting standard Yamaha SR225 or something like that. Willing to go 500 Suzuki GS500e is a nice standard, somewhat recently replace with 500S with a fairing. Ninja 500 with it's half fairing. Suzuki Bandit 400 is a neat standard but rare and older.
