I have a city bike with rockshox Paragon Gold fork an i adjusted it for maximum confort , but if you conpere it with motorcycle suspension it fells like it is very low quality .
For example if i use it as a cruiser bike (leaning more at the back of the bike) the suspension works fine and absorbs the bumps and if you use it as a road bike(leaning more in the front) the suspension doesnt work that good

It's easier for motorbike suspension to behave better as you move your weight around; the bike itself is so much heavier that a movement of your weight is relatively unimportant. Also, the suspension unit itself can be much heavier on a motor bike which makes it easier to engineer robustly.
