BMW’s Adaptive Headlight Technology Promises Better Night Visibility
A new lighting system increases a biker's ability to see at bends and curves.
BMW is introducing ‘Adaptive Headlight Technology’ on its upcoming K1600GT touring bike that will illuminate the highway to dramatically increase a biker’s ability to see what’s ahead. This new mehcanism tilts the headlamp as the rider leans into a curve to light up the corner on the turn, without blinding oncoming motorists. The projection light is centrally-mounted and an on-board banking sensor provides data to the bike’s central computer that helps control traction, an anti-lock braking system and the headlights.
