Having used an NX250 off road, I can assure you that it is a compromise bike, but, if the terrain isn't too difficult, it will do the job for you.
I found that as I aged, I needed a smaller and lighter bike for riding dirt. I managed to trap myself under it riding the Sheetiron 300 with my son, and decided that the time for a smaller bike had arrived back in 2009. The A-1 version is where a lot of the electrical parts are coming from for the diehards still riding the NX250 in the USA (imported '88-90).
I'm quite happy with it as a street bike and for short trips (<400 miles/day).
