Is a Z400 too much for the wife

Hey all! My wife and I are trading in our streetbikes for a couple of quads. It is just too dangerous here in Vegas to ride on the street. I am going to get a Raptor because it fits the best for me (6'5" @ 215lbs) but I want to know if a Z400 (or equiv from Arctic Cat/Kawi) will be too much of a bike for the wife. She has been riding off-road before, and has 1k street miles under her belt.

I set a couple of prerequisites for our bikes (water-cooled, 4 stroke) and in the end narrowed it down to the Z250 or one of the 400's listed above. I figured that the Z250 would satisfy her for a short time before she was ready to move up, so I figured I would start her on one of the 400's. But after seeing how a lot of the men have these, would a stock one (no mods) be too much power for her?

Please, any suggestions would be great.
As I am still looking at forum sites, please email me here.

I am sure she will be fine with a z400 if she has rissen street bikes, if she has ridden those she can ride just about anything, she will pick up on in no time, it has reverse, and it is easy to get some good speed outta them, if she still has the need for speed...
