Default Dynamic camber on motorcycles

Its widely used in hot cars to improve grip in cornering, but I was wondering what if there's a way to get the same on the front wheel of a bike (the rear too if it has a chain drive). What we effectively do when we hang off during cornering is try to keep the wheels as straight as possible, by lowering cg. why not have a suspension which inherently helps in doing that?

Wheels straight as possible? as far as i know i try and get as much lean angle as possible through a corner as traction permits, this is aided by having a low c of g. By "keeping the wheels straight" im assuming you mean as perpendicular to the road surface as possible?
