I also believe that because there is so much highway traffic it leads to larger bikes as well from most view points, take for example Bangkok, Thailand. The place is over run with 125-250 bikes but most of the bike traffic sticks to the surface roads you don't see them on the freeways for the most part.

Our impatience as a society has brought motorcycle traffic to the free ways to save a few minutes each way instead of taking the feeders,surface roads ect. And I believe thats another reason for the bike sizes here.

These are just some observations I have made over the years riding here in the states and overseas.
I'm a fairly decent sized dude, and my little brother's EX250 will do posted speed limits in ALL of our states. The fact of the matter is, the 250s are plenty to ride for commuting. However, Americans are all about bigger=better, faster is the only way to go.
Don't for a second believe that I'm not 100000% American. I have a liter-bike, and wouldn't have it another way.
