Is there technical reasons why Nikon doesn't produce this lens?

CMOS sensors don't scale well with ultra fast lenses. Nikon's 1.4 lenses let in the same amount of light as Canons 1.2 (or maybe I should say..they have about the same T-Stop)

So, they could but it would be expensive and not benefit many over the current 1.4G
