Not promoting the bike itself.
This review has a good description of how the bmw headlight shines into the turn.

Headlight info near the bottom. Pretty ingenious.

But regular motorcycles and Vespas have been doing it for long time. My new TU 250 Suzuki does it, too at no BMW cost or expense to repair. Seeing where yu ae going can be handy.

I remember the Citroen DS 19 tried directional headlamps in the mid 60s. It was good until they were sliding through the bends on opposite lock when rallying ... i suppose the BMW would have the same issue if you were brave enough to drift it through the bends, dirt track style. Rolling Eyes

Fantastic looking motorcycle. If I had a BIG bank account this would be in my 4 car garage.
I believe, that by my scooter having spot-fog lights on my forks, I am able to achieve almost the same effect.
Every knows that BMW stands for "Bring Me Your Wallet" right? :lol!:
