Question 2012 NRS tire wear

I have 8.5k on my 2012 NRS and I have noted a strange tire wear behavior. It seems that the stock Scorchers, no burn outs just highway millage and commuting, seem to wear slightly more in the front than the rear.

I know I am due for a new set of tires but this is the first bikeI have ever owned that wore the front tire slightly faster than the rear. Most of the time, have owned just about every brand of bike and tire, one uses two rear tires to one front. Just as a FYI, I run 36psi F and 42psi R.

The question now is, is this due to the bike or my riding habits? The tire are wearing even and there is no other visible wear save the wear indicators are coming more and more into view.
