paved roads is where probably best enjoyed but off road..... i wouldn't go on the typical off-road terrain dirt bikes go on and ride it to the extreme's dirt bikes are rode to, but some mild off-road terrain shouldn't be bad for it.

You can upgrade the suspension and tires and it'll make it more suitable.

out of the box you can probably go onto dirt roads but nothing with rough terrain.

I think riding on flat unpaved roads should be fine but don't expect to go on steep rocky dirt paths like you're mountain biking or anything.

It is pretty decent off road, just not in the mud. The suspension doesn't have too much travel so you have to take It easy, but I have ridden it quite a bit off road even climbed some hills. Just don't expect it to perform off road like a pit bike.

I will most likely do that. I see myself taking the Grom when I go camping. Many of the roads there are dirt.

on terrain like that the grom should be fine but I would probably not recommend going to the extreme's like this....

I wouldn't doubt that it is impossible for the Grom, at this point it's just about finding the right tire. I would honestly give it a try but just not on the edges where I could fall off.

I would love to give these a go but I would hate to ride with these on the streets. When you see that much gao in the sips it would be uncomfortable riding on flatter surfaces.

Guys with Ruckus' have used similar tires and gone on these kinds of terrains. So I think the Honda Grom would be able to sustain these kinds of roads since it had a better suspension.

How about the sand dune guys? Do you think the Grom could handle that? It would be so fun going up those sand hills.

something like this.

Unless you were dragging a knee I doubt you would notice all that much.

Looks like a good 50/50 tire.
