Don't worry about the electrics, they'll be fine. A dual sport with crash bars like what you posted would be very tough.

Let your daily riding preferences decide, either bike will be fine out there on gk sets.
Yes, Android AND iphone GPS works without cellular data. Use offline maps and enjoy. (thanks drtbyk!)
