Standard Motorcycle Reviews
Standard-type motorcycles have a riding position midway between the forward-rotated position of a sportbike and the reclined arrangement of a cruiser, putting the rider in a very natural position not unlike a low dirtbike.

Standards are popular for commuting and other city riding, as the upright riding position is comfortable and gives greater visibility in traffic.
