I too use to have a Amazon\eBay 7" headlight, while they may be brighter than halogen short distance, the light optics are not the best in terms of light spread\distance. It's a good budget option for city riding or if riding mostly daytime.I have that same headlight on my bike. I got a whole half-season of riding done before half of the halo burned out. Anyone know of a cool LED headlight that lasts?
Below are some Genuine brand options:
- JW Speaker (which also manufactures LED lights for Motodemic, Indian, and Harley Daymaker)
- Nolden (which manufactures the LED LIghtBomb for AC Schnitzer if you live in Europe)
- TruckLight (the only downside with Trucklight is that it sticks too far out unless you get this adapter > Buy Bracket for Truck-Lite LED headlight | Louis motorcycle clothing and technology (they DO NOT ship to the US unfortunately)
- **MAYBE: The BMW R18 seems to have a 7" LED Headlight now, waiting for my local dealer to have that bike in stock so we check out the headlight assembly and wiring.
JW Speaker has a version with a "half halo" but not a full one.
All others that I know of are Chinese copies.
