I think they just like to chew! Ours does this even though she's got loads of different chew toys, she prefers the bars of the cage.

I was told as a child that it's because their bottom teeth keep growing so they need to gnaw on things to keep them to a reasonable length

because it can.

When I was little, my hamster did this to the bars and escaped during the night.

He has so many toys to chew on!

Their teeth grow continuously, they need to wear them down. Also boredom. Give it a wheel, chew toys, let it out as much as possible. It must be very bored. Imagine being shut in the one room all day. Not having a go, I used to keep them when younger, but if it's a boring cage, consider getting a multilevel one.
