A carryover from the firm’s luxury sedans and an option on BMW’s new K1600GT and GTL tourers, adaptive headlight technology will change the way you ride at night. While fixed-beam headlamps are just that, the adaptive headlight’s ultra-bright xenon bulb and reflector are servo-controlled and pivot along with the bike’s front wheel to put illumination right where you need it. That means the headlight’s beam shines down the road while rounding a corner instead of off in the bushes or in the eyes of oncoming motorists. On a twisty road in the dark of night, BMW’s adaptive headlight lets you see further and be seen sooner. For motor- cyclists accustomed to literally riding in the dark when riding in the dark, this is a very good thing.
