BMW and Audi (and probably Mercedes and the high end Japanese cars) have had LED lights - at least surrounding the
headlights - for the past two model years. Why would they penalize bikes and prohibit an obvious safety feature?
Arbitrary archaic nonsensical rules, laws, codes, etc. As an example, LED turn signals have been around for awhile in cars, but BMW Motoradd's LED turn signals do not meet DOT specs and thus are not sold here.
