Hey the VX is already an unusual but cool bike. With some off road pretensions it is becoming sort of like a Japanese Triumph Scrambler, also in a cool-unusual way. IMO that color is just weird though.
I had a VX for a few years in metallic black. I set-up the suspension with better fork springs while replacing my fork seals (too many wheelies). That bike did much better first gear wheelies than my Wee, though in all other ways the Wee outshines it. For a longer wheelbase bike it handled pretty well and had great torque. Finicky carbs were a pain I recall. It didn't depreciate a bit when I sold it, as these bikes appeal to a wide range of buyers.
Your ground clearance and suspension travel will always be a real limitation off road.
