Some folks would probably say yes, I would tend to say no.
IMO (and everything is just opinion) most folks would be better off buying a cheaper, lighter, less powerful (and used) bike first. Most folks I've ever talked to, including MSF instructors advise assuming that you will keep your first bike 1-2 years. After that, not only will you be able to handle a bigger, heavier, more powerful bike, but you will have a much better idea of what type of bike you like.
The Versys 650 is relatively tall and heavy compared to what you will learn on at a MSF class (most likely a 250cc of some sort). If you are 6 foot 6 and 275 pounds, that's a different story. You might need 650cc just to move you, and a 33 inch seat height just to not feel like I feel on a Grom.
But in general, you will find a lighter ADV or DS bike much easier to learn "ADV riding" on - stuff like power slides, spin turns, riding on sand, etc.
That said, I don't think a noob on a Versys 650 is likely to kill themselves in the first week like they would on a Ninja H2, but you might find it a less than optimal learning experience. 1 to 2 year old Versys 300s are plentiful and relatively cheap, and IMO make an excellent first bike, and finding a buyer if you outgrow it should be easy.
