I would not say that 90% of bike in the US are harleys. Between 70 to 80% have the same styling. There are lots of metric (Japanese and European) cruisers and tourers. The rest are mostly sport bikes (fully faired or naked). Adventure touring and standards like the versys have a relatively small market share. Have to remember, motorcycles are not considered sensible means of transportation in the US. The vast majority of people on the US considers motorcycling as a life style choice. Harley Davidson has done an excellent job with their marketing in that area.
I do not drink from the marketing Kool-aid and I do not like chrome therefore I do not consider cruisers desirable.
