Define ‘decent off road riding’? While both the bikes you’ve mentioned are good bikes as soon as you get off a firm flat surface the weight of the bike is your biggest enemy, and both those bikes are big and heavy.

Based on you being a new rider I’d recommend you look at something small and lightweight, i.e in the 250-650 single cylinder range.
