No, I took it in Ithaca just south of me here in central MI, but I am sure they MSF classes all spec the same bikes, there were a ton of Suzukis (8 of 12) at my class, 2 TW200, and some older Honda and another older dual sport.
The big knobby tires and higher seat height made my riding super fun and the bike was a blast. It was a great bike to learn the basics on, and now I want one. The instructors even mentioned to me that the Yamaha was the easiest bike to ride the slow stuff on, plus I have a ton of mountain bike experience so I didn't even have to lean to the the figure 8, and I had a couple feet to spare on each side, the box could have been smaller.
