i would recomend the crf150f by honda, (of course) its a 4 stroke trail bike and good for beginners. if you dont want to spend over 2000k then you should try looking for a nice used one around your parts.

Yamaha TTR-225.

Four stroke, fairly inexpensive, slightly lower seat height. The engine is NOT a "high performance" model so it will be fine on regular gas, will be easier to start and not quite at finicky as the high compression models.

It is not an MX bike so go a little easy on the jumps, but otherwise it should do fine.
