This is kind of a relative statement.
Actually there is, but you have to think about it a little differently than a motorcycle. A motorcycle goes fast enough to build up a lot of wind resistance all by itself.
Motor bicycles you would tend to think don't, but the wind doesn't think. You can easily be trying to do 30 mph against a 30 mph headwind. That's a lot of wind resistance. In a circumstance like that aerodynamics can make a big difference.
I've noticed on my bike that wind seems like a bigger hindrence than hills.
