The "highlight" in headlight design for the F650GS-Twin and F800GS.
Touratech has engineered a combination HID xenon high beam driving light and a low beam fog lamp for the new vertical twins. This kit comes with all mounting materials including the lights, specific mounting brackets, wiring harness and instructions.
The HID xenon driving lamp provides 3x the light of a pair of 55w driving lamps. This provides more useable light further down the road and to the sides. You can see hazards, animals, and road conditions sooner and with greater detail. The light produced more closely approximates the colour temperature of natural daylight. This makes for better visibility in night driving conditions as the light reflects more off of objects.
The fog lamp projects a low, wide beam of light with a very sharp cut-off. This allows it to be used in traffic and in the daytime to both improve the rider's visibility and make the bike more noticeable to other traffic. In fog, rain or snow the low, wide light prevents light from being reflected back into the rider's eyes.
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.
