FWIW, I have a KLR and had a DL-650. I considered the DL to be the equivalent of a Subaru Outback sort of cage... capable of very limited off-road fun, but not a serious off-road machine, especially compared to the KLR (which some folks also argue is not a serious off-road machine!). But it will get you into and out of places like NF Campgrounds and such.
I pretty much agree with the comments above regarding any VStrom off-road. Can be done, but carefully, and may not be as fun as you might think.
