If you weigh 170 lbs or more and have 35-36 inch legs the KLR could possibly be considered ok for beginners. Best to be fully flat footed during learning.

But a lower, lighter bike is more managable for most beginners.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

It's tall. If you are too, then it's ok. A little heavy for a new rider. I'd say to look at a used XT250 or 225. It's a "one summer" beginner bike, you learn some, then you sell it and get your money back to buy the KLR or DR650.
