I ride a KTM 530 from 25-75 miles to get off-road. I run Dunlop 908 on the rear and 606 on the front, with spoke weights to balance the tire. It vibrates badly highway speeds without the weights. I also replaced the stock plank with a seat concepts set-up. Very happy with this. Only drawback is the slab will wear the tires much faster. Ultimate MX hauler for longer trips.

Going to look into a 530 or 450.
Lots of places here sell Katooms, but not the factory plated versions so it might take some looking.

I would say it depends on your size and fitness level. I ride about 15-20 miles and love most fire roads on my 950 ADV. (I'm 6', 200# and work out in the gym nearly everyday)

Any six speed 250cc dual sport or similar would work. Example: WR250R, KLX250, DR350.
