    Yeah my understanding other brands already do it. The leaning light projection.

    The speed variable beam width is something I haven't seen yet though.

    Me neither but that is the part that makes me nervous. Some things now days are just being made more complicated than needed. But then I have no complaints with my Vision's lights and haven't used such a system. Maybe they could win me over but will I be willing to pay what Indian thinks it is worth?

    No thanks, not on a motorcycle, just put a good headlight on it and keep it simple.
    Many New European Spec cars have adaptive LED headlights, they are on high beam and auto dim and adapt in turns but US DOT don't allow them in the US so that feature gets defeated on exports to US. There are some dealers that will reprogram to Euro specs after purchase.

    That auto hi-beam is some of the tech on our Jeep that irks me. When it is on it goes from low to high to low to high as you come up to any reflective surface. So every street sign it is flipping back and forth. It can get really annoying. Hopefully they can improve it in the years to come.

    The first car I am aware of having adaptive headlights was the GTR. That was said to be able to corner hard enough that it became a good feature to have. If I remember correctly Clarkson was driving it on Top Gear and pulled his neck with the G's it created in the corners.

    we have been selling JW Speaker Adaptive headlights for Vics for years .... tech is nothing new and vastly cheaper for our bikes.

    My uncle had that auto dim feature on a Cadillac he owned back in the 60's
    It did the same thing yours is doing, sooooooooooooo, I doubt it will be improved in the near future.

    I do like the sound of a narrow and far out light with a faster speed. In Japan, tech is shared throughout a whole industry. So in Japan JW would be doing this and sharing it out to other manufactures. Less duplication in the industry and a saving of resources.
