One thing to note while being able to ride off road a bit is nice DP's don't usually have any wind protection (fairing) Which if your going over 55 for very long can be very annoying.

The main thing you get with a DP bike you don't get with a bike like the EX500 is much more suspension travel for rougher roads. If it's a smooth dirt road (like a well maintained fire road) just about any bike can off road on it fine knobby tires can help but actualy slicks aren't as bad as you'd think.

I'd recommend the EX500.
