I think the crf230l is lighter then the TW200!
The 6 speed and real suspension would be much nicer then what is on the TW200, but the TW excel's in tough off road situations like miles of thick sand.
If learning motorcycle, you do not want tall top heavy bikes.
You can have a lot more fun on an easy to ride bike.

A used CRF230L is the bike I'd recommend. It has a wide-ratio 6spd, disc brakes, a bit better power than the 200s you ask about, and a low seat. It's also much lighter than a DR650SE, or even the new CRF250L.
