It's fine. Just take care of your chain after wet rides. (Levers, pegs, and kickstand too. I used white lithium grease on all those. Doesn't get flushed out when wet.)
I keep the chain lubed as normal. If I oiled it after every time it got wet, I'd almost do it every day in winter "!"
Levers - oil every 3 months using a cable oiler.,
Pegs - only the spring & only when & if I remove it.
& the stand - once a year (if bothered) - its only a stand & gets covered in lube by the chain...

It will be ok for that day, just clean up and lube........but you don't want to leave it out in alot of bad weather......If you don't have a garage get a bike cover.

the electronics will fry. rain will just flat our murder your bike.

on a serious note, bikes were meant to get wet. sitting out in a downpour for the day isn't going to hurt it.

I missed it this morning going to school. A few minutes ago though it got me good. Twice for just a few minutes on the 210. Didnt get totally soaked so that was nice.
