One HID lamp, mounted on the left side. Xenon HID provides the brightest light for the power used. Due to the excellent lumen output of Xenon bulbs, the light emitted reaches farther and the light beam to illuminate the road is even greater (see )
In addition, the light produced more closely approximates the color temperature of natural daylight. This makes for better visibility and noticeably less eye strain in night driving conditions.
Includes all components necessary to work with the BMW CANBUS system. This light includes a relay. It comes on automatically whenever the main high-beam is on. There is no switch, but a switch can be added by the user. Please also see HID instructions tip at right.
All Touratech HID xenon lights come with an HID ballast that has specially reinforced circuitry for use on a motorcycle. This special feature is only available from Touratech and ensures that your HID lighting system (which includes the ballast that fires the bulb at 20,000 volts) will stand up to the rigors of use on a long-distance enduro touring motorcycle.
The high-efficiency HID lamp takes about 90Watts to start, then after a few seconds, drops to a sustained 60W draw, while producing more light than 150 watts of Halogen lighting. Furthermore, the color temperature is more like daylight, so driving at night is more comfortable.
