Worth it to go off road ?.. If you like riding trails then YES. This bike does amazing well off road but with only 6.4hp you really don't need knobby tires unless you always want to be ready for really nasty Wet, Muddy, Sandy riding conditions. or if your going to ride it hard and fast like a dirt bike. If you just want to do casual fun off roading a Dual Sport tire is better for street comfort and stunting because of the airing down needed for better stability.
