BMW K 1600GT-Headlight.

This is awesome. BMW has done it perfectly, but not my cup of tea as 1600 , 6 cylinder is too big to handle.

I have never seen anything like that, on car or motorcycle. Truly amazing, if it works as the video demo indicates. WOW!

Several cars have adaptive headlights so this isn't new. The new part is how they adjust for lean, but then again, cars do not really have the need for that.

Yes , the new part which adapts to the lean angle of the bike and from the demo, it looks like its floating, and moving freely as per the bike directions.

That would be awesome if it was floating...but I doubt it. If I know German engineering practices that puppy is hooked up to a motor, tied to a pitch sensor, getting it's data off a CAN network...ugh, lol.
