If I can track these eyes with EVF, I see no reason why a motorcycle couldn't be tracked.

That is a bird gliding relatively slowly along a very easily predictable path.  It's possible to shoot shots like that with a view camera on a tripod. Or even no viewfinder at all.

There are a lot of things much, much harder to track than even a motorcycle.  But also seeing the critical moment to fire the shutter at the same time makes it harder.  What you see in the EVF is not the critical moment, which often passes before the EVF even manages to display it, let alone allow time to react.
