Going off topic. Anyways, cars are different from bikes.

A commuter bike or even a powerful commuter (like for eg 200NS) has enough torque and power to take you upto speeds and then again brake for the stop-go traffic. The advantage of using less powerful bikes are:
  1. Light weight which translates to less effort.
  2. Less heat from the engine
  3. Smaller size of bike (might be useful when you want to squeeze through traffic)
  4. More mileage
  5. Low cost of ownership and maintenance
Where as in the car you do not need to put such differential efforts (for eg effort required to turn the steering of Civic will be equal to that of an AMG) nor you are subjected to the elements.

In case one does not mind the above mentioned points, they can use bigger bikes.

Hope this answers your query.

Powerful bikes are attractive and can be subjected to vandalism.
