I never ride a motorcycle before, but planning to get my motorcycle license.

SV650s are very popular for beginners, I had one as my first. Don't go for a GSXR or similar right away, you won't be able to handle it if something goes wrong.
The Ninja 250 is very popular but I can guarantee you'll get bored of how small and slow it is in no time. I think for your first proper bike, 500cc is a bare minimum.
Go to a good dealership and sit on a bunch of bikes! You have to find it comfortable, too! I loved my SV on the highway but for starting and stopping in city traffic, the riding position was way too uncomfortable.1

Ideally you should practice on a pitbike on a big piece of land, you'd kill yourself on a sports bike. Just get use to changing gears, as pitbikes are basically the same but just more sensitive when you accelerate.
Don't go out and buy a brand spanking new bike. You'll drop it so many times, you'd lose count. My first bike was a 2007 gpx250. So aim for anything like a 250-300cc. A good sports bike is the Kawasaki ninjas.
The only issue is that when you're use to a 250/300 you'd want more power and start to venture off looking for something with higher cc's.. Then get a 600cc.1
