Because Honda wired it to be that way. Why, maybe to be sure you wanted to start and didn't just bump into the button. It also provides a check of the brake circuit before you go, not a bad thing either.

Yeah it's always that way with pretty much any scooter. Some guesses why are:

1) If your idle is set too high, then the scooter will start too move as soon as you turn it on (more of an issue if you are using a kickstand than a centerstand).

2) Some scooters like a bit of throttle to start, and if you're doing this then having one hand on the brake could come in handy.

It is a safety feature. So the brakes will be on when the engine starts and if the engine revs real high you don't have the bike run away from you. Don't change it. Hell that is why there is a brake lever locking lever on the rear brake.
