The new BMW K1600GT will feature an optional Adaptive Headlight - an electronic system will adjust the headlight’s beam to compensate for front and rear pitch as well as lean angle, keeping the beam flat and optimised for best visibility at night.
This is the first time a system of this kind has ever been fitted to a motorcycle. Watch the video to see how it works:

Headlamps on forks...

.. taken from MCN's own review pages circa 2006! -
"The Ducati ST3 has headlight aim which is electronically controllable from the instrument panel – Ford Focus cars have it but not many motorcycles. The Ducati ST3 does."
Fully Adaptive? Maybe not. But can we say this is truly a 'FIRST' for this category of technology on any motorcycle?

as long as they can set it up so it doesn't dazzle the bejesus out of on coming motorists..... like their cars do (and Audis for that matter).
