Try to include the following info in your first post
1) your physical size (both height and weight are important)
2) How physical / aggressive are you ?
3) what do you plan to ride- MX/SX tracks, woods, fields with friends or ?????
4) Do you have any riding experience?
5) Do you think you will race ?
6) Are you mechanically inclined and will you be doing your own bike work?
7) Do YOU have a preferance to a brand/ motor choice (2 or 4 stroke)?
8) Do you have a dealer close by your home that you might use and what brand(s) does he carry?
9) How much ($) do you plan to spend on a bike?
10) Do you live in California?
11) Your age?
12) anything else that you think would help form an opinion

This info won't guarentee a perfect bike choice but it will sure stear the answers you get closer to the ideal bike.

At your heighth and weight, I would get and 85. The honda has the lowest seat height at 32", but the CR also has a lot of hit, and if you were a begginer the suzuki or the kawi have the low end power. you said you preffered a 4 stroke, but if you were into racing then the only bike would be the 150R, which can only race supermini, which is not a beginner class. An average price of an 85 is like 3000-3500 new (except for the ktm which is like 4500) You could probably get a used one for like 1500-2500. And I'm not sure about this, but wouldn't having a dirt bike shipped to you be like another 1000 or more bucks?

I also say a 85 is much better then any XR, TTR, CRF, or DRZ on juice. I also think the KX85 or Suzuki RM85 would be best for your needs.
