Question LED headlights?

How good are the LED headlights? Are they bright enough? ( I did a search first, but only found LED conversions)...

They are sensational!

Very bright and very white. I find good distance and coverage.

The only lights that could be better would be Xenon lights in a car.

You will love your bike when it arrives, no fear!

In comparison to the 848.1098 series it's a massive difference. Can't really speak to 1199 non LED headlights but if they are similar to the older bikes then the LED gets you what I would term about 4 times more light. Note that that is a very subjective statement but that's how it feels to me.

Best motorcycle headlights i'ever seen. Great coverage, very white. You will love them. Far better than standard lights like my 996 or Tuono.
