What was the first year that the GL1800 came with stock LED headlights?

Below is from Honda website for current model year but applies to the 2018 & 2019 as well:

All 2020 Gold Wing models feature a complete LED lighting package. The headlights, the taillights, and every bit of instrumentation is LED. LEDs not only last longer, but they’re also lighter and run cooler.

"Wasn't aware they did, ever???????????????????????????????"

That's what I'm finding out, and I'm stunned. Who'da thunk it? Top tier technology abounds on a Goldwing but no LED headlights.

Let's all be clear.
GL1800 2017 and earlier never came from the factory with LED headlights.
GL1800 2018 and up came factory equipped with LED headlights as noted previously.
