For dirt roads, forest service roads, jeep trails, and twisty pavement, I'll take my DR650 hands down. But for the more agressive off road, I'd rather be on the DR350. I'm glad I have both to choose from!
And they cost $1000 more while getting 20mpg less. While it might be superior on high speed pavement, it loses in the overall....IMHO.
