trying to find a bike for my better half

So's, my wife just took the BRC and passed and is looking for a bike.
She's short (5'5"), so I'm thinking an F650GS. She can almost flat foot both feet on the standard seat/suspension '07 we saw at A&S. So that would work.
My question is how much taller is the Dakar version (with and/or without knobbies)? Is it possible to put something more street oriented (80/20) on a Dakar, or is that like putting snow tires on a Ferrari? And would that lower it a bit?

Thanks in advance, FFers.

Edit: oh crap, wrong thread, we're thinking thumper, not twin. my bad.
'07 R1200GS (Gisele)
'75 R75/6 (Ashley)
'87 C-5B (FRED)
