Check out some of the smaller dual sports they have the standard seating / peg position you seem to like. Just one prob is that they’re ugly ducks for the most part and it takes a particularly odd mind to find them beautiful. (Me). You may want to stay away from the Japanese 650s tho they all have seat heights of 35+ inches. And if you’re willing to spend some more money check out the BMW dual sports esp some of the past/discontinued models like the F650 CS(Scarver) from 2007 / earlier. Most of the BMW F-series (non new 2008+ the F-series are now 800cc twin cylinders instead of the calmer 650 singles) dual sports have lower seat heights (around 29-32.5″). If you’re willing to spend the money (7,500 MSRP for the lowest price) check out the new BMW G-series (G650) they all have seats heights at 29/30 inches (cept for the XChallenge) and BMW offers a lowering option that drops them about 1/2 -1″ lower. If you really like the street fighter/ scrambler look check out the Xcountry it’s probably the prettiest of all dual sport machines out there. But if you aren’t willing (and rightly so) to spend that kind of money check out the smaller dual sports like the Suzuki DR200SE, Honda CRF230M/CFR230L( the 230L is more dirt oriented), The Yamahas WR250X/WR250R , XT250, and TW200 for Kawasaki your choices would be KLX 250S / KLX 250 SF(SF is more street focused) or KLX Super Sherpa. All of those have seat heights around 30-32″ and looks only a mother could love. Best of luck to you!
I know you said you didn’t like sport-bikes but check out the older suzuki GS500’s they have a more standard seat to peg/handle bar setup than other sporty machines; it also comes in a nice standard/naked/cafe racer/ streetfighter look. (ie zero fairing, round lamp headlight, & no windshield)
