Reading more into the specs and features I discovered the LED headlights include a heat sink, where you ask? the center gap. (very similar to its bigger brother, the 1290) I knew they had plans to ditch the single headlamp setup but did not expect to see this coming...

Wow, that's actually pretty darn smart. I would've never guessed that it would be there but it sounds like it'll be really effective. I wonder if that would add to the drag of the bike though ?

I doubt it'll affect the aerodynamics of the bike all that much and the benefits outweighs the cons of such a set up. They've probably tested it extensively if the 1290 has the same setup too.

What will be more interesting is seeing a wind tunnel testing video showing how air flows above and long the 1090 and especially in that heat sink. Even the actual effect it has on cooling since effectiveness is also key.
