I know of a girl that is about exactly your height who rides a F4 (non I model) that is lowered .
I would have to call her BF to see how she is progressing but he would go out with her in the parking lots down the street from their apartment and practice riding a bit.
Basically he just rides it down there then she rides it.
That was awhile ago , she's probably riding it on the street now.
But yes, there are short girls riding 600's.
Heck if my CBRf2 was set on the lowest spring setting on the rear it might ever work.
I'm only 5 6" and I ride with it on the highest setting and I can still flat foot it.
A CBR f2 / f3 with a lowering link is perfect. Not too much power (ok who are we kiding) and they aren't too tall. + they are cheap , especially if you don't care about plastics like me.
good luck, take your time , and don't think you need a more powerful bike.
lots of riders act like they do
