Best 2T bike for dual sporting?

Hope this question wasnt asked before. But my criteria is a little different.

I want to buy a 2-stroke bike that is good with trails and also as a SuperMoto. I am thinking something between 250-500CC stroker.

Some background on me: I have owned a lot of small 2 strokes in my life and the biggest I had was an RD350 LT. I have close to 70,000 kilometers of commuting and light trail experience on strokers.

The things I am looking for in the bike
- Should be good for an easy swap of tires between SuperMoto and Dirt setups.
- Mono-shock. I am sick of riding vintage dual spring shocks
- Automatic 2T oil mix. I dont wanna bother with mixing oil myself everytime.
- Should be decent for commuting and occasional dirt rides. (A good compromise between these two is fine too)
- Taggable in AT LEAST ONE of the CONUS states. I can find a friend thats willing to get it tagged for me in their state.
- Decent fuel mileage would be great, but doesnt really matter. (one of those added advantages things)
- Maintenance, I can do myself mostly but something with solid engine and low maintenance cycles would be better.

2007 DR650 SuperMoto with almost all the goodies..(it never ends ya know!)
