You kind of contradict yourself in your post. But for the record, a good EFI system, tuned well, most definitely can and will produce more power than any carburetor, everything else being equal on the same engine platform. As far as reliability and longevity, on small 2 strokes they have not proven to be more reliable or have a longer duty cycle than any carburetor.

And produce more torque during low rpm/airflow situations due to a better mix of fuel/air.

I sure wish HH would do something. The "Winter" excuse is getting pretty lame. Put it on a test stand and run it. Run it at 70F inside the back door of the loading dock. Then put it outside in the Winter temps and let it sit for and hour and run it again. Those temp swings are what we have to deal with here in NH.
