Have you tried one? I know for some it's all about looks, I would assume for this rider it was about comfort and ergonomics.
I have one of the stock height seats and it is a huge improvement in comfort, and looks for that matter.
The seat in picture is tall but I would assume the rider is too. IMO it is better to have good ergs than to look cool for your bros. YMMV.
