The DR-Z is tough as nails, but you still hit the handlebars on a drop. The CBR500R just lands on the bars instead, though I'm guessing the electronics don't like being jostled around as much.
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.
