According to the story, Kawasaki is designing the night vision technology for the next generation of the 1400 GTR.

The system would work using twin cameras mounted on the rear view mirrors, scanning for upcoming obstacles and giving an audible warning to riders. The camera would also send information to a dash-mounted display.

Patents filed by Kawasaki give some hints of this technology will work, but for all the details we will probably have to wait till the 2010 models are revealed this fall.
