Technology has been around for a few years. MotoGP tried using it a few years back and then it was banned. Original idea for them was to have it linked to GPS and have a suspension that adjusted individually for each and every corner, much like the engine/fuel mapping already is.

Ducati has had it in production for a bit now. The Multistrada has an electronically controlled on the fly adjuster for choosing between different set ups (off road, city, etc), and the Panigale has it as an available option.
My understanding was that the HP4 is the first bike to do it on the fly without any input.
