Because of your size, and the fact that your running in the desert, a stock yet big gas tank would be a plus (or something that got good mileage).

Here's my suggestion in no particular order:
KDX-200 or 220
XR-250
DRZ-250

With some reservation, I will consider recommending a "modern" 250f, as long as your aware that these are more race bikes and less trail bikes. And as a result, the maintenance will go up.

WR-250
CR-250F
