For me, off road isn't likely going to be anything more than dirt roads. I no longer feel the need to challenge myself when I ride. So a CB500X, like most street bikes, would work just fine in that role.
They are light, cheap, comfy, and I suspect will handle well enough on pavement.
They had them at the bike show this weekend. I liked it a lot
Unfortunatley, so did my teenage son, which would mean hiding the key.
It's on my short list for the spring for sure.
