"S" owners. How are the LED headlights at night?

I ride quite a bit at night and I'm keen to hear what you guys who have received your bikes think ..

Thanks.

Awesome.
Thanks for that :-)

I'm ready for some positive news.
All this talk about brake pad recall, heat, rear suspension, stalling, rock hard seats, etc etc etc has me ready for something reported as overwhelmingly positive.

Thanks again.

I Ride: Ducati Panigale 1199 S...
I HAVE A 2010 MERCEDES C-CLASS with HID's and I'd say they're on par if not better...

REALLY IMPRESSED and when the brights are on during the day it looks like you're riding a bike from Tron

Excellent!

I did a HID upgrade on the 848 which is much better than stock.
But, it could still be better. Especially riding through the hills at night in low lit areas.

This is good news.

I Ride: Daytona 675 SE + 1199S ABS
The thing I notice, besides the lights being very white and bright, is that there's a huge spread of light on dipped beam. So much that I keep thinking there's a car behind me because the road to either side of the bike is so well illuminated.
