Default Why doesn't Honda use Fuel Injection on more of there Cruisers?

Alot of other bike makers are equiping more of their Cruisers with Fuel Injection, why hasn't Honda?I believe the only bike (Cruiser) that Honda produces with EFI is the VTX1800.Harley and Victory have equipped most of their line up with EFI.Kawasaki has the 1500 Vulcan, Mean Streak, and Vulcan 900.Suzuki has the Boulevard C50, Boulevard C90 and Marauder 1600Yamaha has the Stratoliner/Roadliner and Road Star Warrior ------

Quite likely because buyers are more sensitive to the machine look and price tag than fuel economy and performance.

Mainstream Vtwin today have an engine power and displacement comparable to a small car, same price tag and similar fuel economy with a carb. EFI models are more fuel efficient, but who cares ?
