Found this wonderful infographic yesterday that compares car and motorcycle use for just about every country in the world. Granted, the data is for 2002 but I dare say it won't have changed too much in the interim.
It's been a long time since I did high school geopgraphy, but it looks to me that "poorer" countries use more bikes. It's not really a surprise, and it would be good to find the data to see if that's really the case but one thing's clear: In the "west" we don't see motorcycles as our go-to transport.
