The biggest reason is for SEO!! You can have star ratings next to your google search results which greatly improves click-throughs, although When I googled this article there were no stars- Call me Vital! Jk i"m a developer, not a marketing guy.

Vital should consider ditching the star ratings. Of the fifty bikes Vital has recently reviewed, 46 were 4s or 4.5s (2 5s and 2 3.5s). Yeah, I know, modern bikes are really good. But telling us the vast majority are either "excellent" or "outstanding" isn't helpful, and it makes the ones...more

Thats not how science works. For something to be true, you have to provide evidence that it is true, not assume its true until someone disproves it.
