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 colour temperature of natural daylight. This makes for better visibility in night driving conditions.
In contrast to halogen bulbs, Xenon produces a much higher luminous flux (3200 Lumens compare to 1500 lumens) which translates to more than twice the light for the same wattage. You may have seen the slight bluish tint of luxury cars, this is the same light.
The transformer (ballast) mounts inside the frame cavity above the horn with special R1150GS bracketry provided in the kit.
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.
Startup power requirement is about 90W but stabilizes at about 60W sustained draw after a few seconds.
