cafe or road race style. really just a good suspension geometry for the twisties.

whatever allows me to get my knees as close to the pavement as possible. not close enough to drag knee as i don't wear a suit with knee sliders but close enough.

which is why my hugger isn't a 'hugger' anymore i guess.

i think exactly like you
in addition... very often i wear Dainese trousers not with proper sliders... but with heavy knee and ankle protections
very satisfied of the stock 2017 emulsion suspensions, of the height for EU versions... and of the fork cartridges

I'd call it adventure touring style but it could be a chopper in 5 years or a cafe. That's what's so great about sportys
