Welcome to the forum. I'll second the advice above.
A used bike (even if just for 1 summer ) is best to learn on. Many will drop their 1st bike several times. The vstrom having a tall seat and with a high center of gravity , this tends to make things worst. The plastic is fragile and expensive.
Unless of course if you have lots of experience on motocross.
