What is it built for?

So i got my hands on this bike a while back, Soho Extreme. I know nothing about bikes, could anyone tell me what kind of bike it is? Prob a stupid question, but i really can't find any info about this bike. It feels heavy and really small for me (i'm around 190cm tall) Would really appreciate some help on what kind of riding it's made for.

Looks to me like a dirt jumper or "freeride" bike. Kinda like a hardtail downhill bike. Let this guy tell you--

Looks like a dirt jumper bike type to me. Meant to be taken on a packed dirt track filled with jumps.

It also looks TINY. Your saddle is WAY low if you are a bit over 6 feet tall. Definitely not the bike for someone your height. Even given compact frames and sloping top tubes, that bike is still small.

EDIT: Like this video. Basically BMX bikes that fit adults a bit better. (Yes yes I know there are actual bmx bikes that do this, but dirt jumper bikes bridge the gap between BMX and mountain bike.)
