Why did Shrikrushna narrate Gita only to Arjun?

Arjun was Gudakeshā  (v) that is the one who could comprehend the implied meaning (gudha means secret) in Keshav’s (Shrīkrushna’s) speech. At the beginning of the Shrīmadbhagwadgitā, Arjun tells Shrikrushna, Senayorubhayormadhye ratham sthapaya me chyut (सेनयोरुभयोर्मध्‍ये रथं स्‍थापय मेऽच्‍युत|)’ (Shrimadbhagwadgita 1:21). It means ‘O Achyut, place my chariot in the midst of both the armies’. Here, of the several names of Shrikrushna Achyut is used because Arjun is referring to the Shrikrushna who does not deflect from His responsibilities, the one who is unflinching. ‘In the midst of both the armies’ implies between the good and the evil. Thus He asks Shrikrushna to take him beyond all kinds of duality. Click here to read more.
