Possible reasons:

  • They don't see a market for it large enough to make it worthwhile
  • They haven't made one that actually improves anything
  • They think the bike doesn't need one

one more question.
why do some companies call it a lowering link and rg3 does not use that term?

Possibly because it doesn't lower anything. The Storm link for the steel 450's raised the back of the bike slightly.

Links are only called lowering links when they are designed to lower the height of the bike for the vertically challenged. Performance linkages that are available for certain bikes change the rising rate of the suspension to improve the suspension action. These do not typically lower the bike (as mentioned before), and are not available for many bikes because many bikes have pretty good linkage rates from the factory.
