dualsport stripped for dirt?

So I came up with an idea (i'm sure its been done) that I'd like to get a smaller(ish?) dualsport and really strip it down so its basically for dirt, but can handle 20-30km of highway sprints inbetween trails.

 

Any suggestions on bikes that would be good for this?

 

KLX would be my choice, but went the other way because it is easy for me to plate a off road bike. I ride a TE 300 and it works fine for short runs down pavement.

DRZ400S

the suspension on ds bikes with the exception of ktms is too soft . so my choice would be a used ktm 450exc
