World’s First Motorcycle Adaptive Headlights

Posted: 26 Feb 2011 09:00 PM PST

Hi guys, I’ve got some great news for all your night riders out there. Imagine riding along a road at night where the headlight was actively trying to see round corners. Pretty cool, right?

For the first time ever on a motorcycle, BMW is offering its Adaptive Xenon headlight system as an option on the K1600GT and K1600GTL.

It works by using ride height sensors in the front and rear wheel axles to know when the bike is pitching or diving, so when you accelerate, a motor on the headlight means the beam stays flat rather than reaching for the sky.

Stay tuned for more updates, and be sure to order your copy of the 2011 print edition of Inline Performance Magazine HERE at the pre-order price for a limited time.
