Primarily, fuel injection was used because carburettors have had difficulty in dealing with slow intake-air-speeds as well as high intake-air-speeds, and fi has evolved and eliminated this. M'cycles tend to have smaller chokes and higher revving engines, maybe this air speed is sufficient. Also the use of catalytic converters on cars has meant that fi *has* to be used. Do many m'cycles have catalysts? Please feel free to pull these arguments to bits if they are unfounded.
