How do your headlight work on the road?

Visibility at night is vital, you would not say less. In winters days the lights are crucial, even with a few rides happening. In this time of the year, the days are shorter, which means that you will depend more on your bikes lights and need to make your motorcycle more visible as possible. It’s the famous see and be seen.


Acetylene and oil headlamps were available at dawn of motoring, granting some light but it was not enough even by those days’ standards. Decades of research and development gave us better designs and technologies, halogen, HID (xenon), LED and even laser headlight systems. After years of tests came the good news, that modern motorcycles lights and electrical systems are so much better than years ago. HID and lasers are still complicated and bulky to be used in motorcycles, while halogen bulbs are reliable, lightweight and compact, therefore this technology is the most popular in motorcycle world. LED technology improved enough and start to press competitors. But whatever lighting system your motorcycle uses, remember that even low maintenance lamps requires some attention to keep you safe on the road.

Normally modern OEM headlights are strong enough to illuminate the road, but there’re no limits for improvement. Many additional lights are available these days: low and high beams, anti-fog and day-running lights in different shapes and sizes. But, not so many are developed specifically to the bike model, they are universal mostly.
