Well Bugs are just bugs so it's logical that they have low HP. Bugs can't much damage. I mean, their body is fragile and easily squished.

Anyway, I think HP is based on the vague idea of life force. You can clearly see how Ghosts have low HP. That's because they are not actually alive. Ghosts are dead thus Ghost type Pokemon have low HP.
Steel and Rock types as well have low HP most of the times because they are inanimate materials so they don't have much life in them.
Bugs have low HP because they are..insects.
Psychic types also have low HP because they rely on their psychic abilities so their body is frail.
