regarding klr650

i am very very new to adventure riding and am thinking of buying a klr...i found a bike online, a 2001 klr but with no electric start. I searched online but couldn't find anything about klr without electric starter...I am confused, and since I am a newbie, not sure if getting a klr with just the kick starter is a good idea. Would appreciate if you guys had any advise.
thanks in advance

I wonder if the bike might be a KLX650? I don't know much about those. Do they have a kick start anyone? They were dropped from production years ago if it is one. AS far as I know, all the KLR650s are electric only start....

KLR250 is kick-start only. Modest proposal: Contact the seller to clarify the exact model of motorcycle for sale.

To the best of my knowledge and belief, all KLR650s possess electric starters from the factory (as birdmove posts above); auxiliary kick-starters were available in early years (somewhat earlier than 2001) as an add-on accessory.
