The bike makes peak power at 4000 RPM, which is far above the shift points listed in the manual. The S50's motor redlines at over 8000 RPM, which is something like 70 MPH in first gear, which I guess she is smart enough not to try. Just rev it up and go. She will very quickly learn to feel the shift points, rather than hear them or watch the speedo for them: the bike will pull very strong up to 4000 RPM, then power will start to fall off. The seat of her pants will tell her when she is past peak power, which is still only half way to the redline. So she is not going to over rev the motor...don't worry about it.
