Shinkos are great tires --this is my third set (had the 705s on the KLR 650, and a Yamaha XT250) and had nothing but good experiences.
My research indicates that there is quite a variety of tires in sizes that will fit the DR200. Shinko advertises the 244 as 70/30 on/off road (and the 700 as 80/20). The 244 would be quite suitable for my type of riding.
