What type of riding is she interested in?
How is she going to use the ATV?
Was she happy on the 300?
I just picked up a 2006 Honda TRX250EX. A nice one can be had for around $1900.00 (where I live).
The '06 TRX250EX is a Entry to intermediate level rider machine.
The 'clutch' is Honda's 'Sport Clutch'. It gives the rider the option of using the clutch lever to shift. Beginners like it cause they don't have to 'slip the clutch to get moving. Advanced riders like it because it feels like a tradional clutch when needed.
In '06 Honda put a reverse in the machine. Great for beginners.
The TRX250EX is also shaft drive. With a sealed drive system there is almost zero maintance.
The bike is electric start, 5 speed plus, reverse.
Shaft driven. Plenty of power to trail ride with. EZ to maintain. Ton's of goodies available too.

Perfect. Auto everything (even brakes, basically ) Simple air/oil cooled and keeps up pretty well!

Don't get me wrong. 3rd gear power wheelies are EZ to do.
If you buy '05 or newer they come with reverse. Very handy.
I would suggest whatever size you buy, add a set of 'nerf bars, with 'heel guards'.
