Last updated on 25-Nov-2023 , By Saleh

Motorcycle headlamps are one of the most important road-legal features for a motorcycle like other road-legal vehicles on public roads. It not only shows the path in the dark but also confirms the vehicle's existence on the road. Further, it conveys a few signals from the motorcyclist to other vehicle drivers on the road. Regarding that feature here I am Saleh peering on the discussions on, modern motorcycle headlamp features and enhancements; come join me.

 

Modern Motorcycle Headlamp Features And Enhancements

Motorcycle headlamps are an obvious part of road-legal motorcycles. Not only in road-legal motorcycles but also in off-road trail bikes and even in a few race bikes these days headlamps are featured for various reasons. Not focusing on the irregular reasons here I’m focusing on the road-legal motorcycle headlamps and which now peered with a bundle of feature enhancements. So let’s be specific on the topic.

Modern motorcycles these days come with various types of headlamps as lighting technology for motor vehicles is now developed and updated a lot. Accordingly, even regular-category motorcycles now come with powerful headlamps featuring halogen bulbs. And in hi-tech motorcycles, we can see projector, HID, LED, etc. featured headlamps which are comprised of better illumination, better on-road visibility to other vehicles, and also last for longer hours.

Thus considering the updated features, motorbikers also now have the opportunity to update their headlamp system with the latest featured and powerful lights. Hence whatever the light type used in the modern motorcycles those are obviously integrated with some standard features and now in the modern motorcycles a bundle of enhancements featuring according to present road requirements those discussed below.

Headlamp High Beam & Low Beam

High beams and low beams in motorcycle headlamps is an integrated features that also similar to most road-legal vehicles. Low beam light is simply used to illuminate the closest surrounding surfaces in the front of the motorcycle. Therefore, riding at a lower speed, within the city traffic or downtown, or on the off-road low beam supports best while riding at night or in the dark.

On the other hand, while riding on the highways a rider is required to get long-distance light coverage according to the comparatively higher speed. Thus a rider needs to see the roads lying in the front clearly and also the upcoming vehicles from a distance. Here headlamp high beam does its job. Whatsoever, both the low beam and high beam of the motorcycle headlamp are necessary for a safer ride in the dark or at night.

Emergency High Beam Flash

A motorcycle headlamp system is not only necessary to see the road surface and ride in the dark. It also helps to ensure a vehicle's presence on the road. Thus while riding in a two-way traffic system on a single road or lane perhaps in the city or in the countryside road headlamp also can be used to convey a specific signal to upcoming vehicles and even to pedestrians.

Hence motorcycle's upper beam or high beam is often used to convey such signals that also can be called emergency signals. In such conditions, a rider can switch between the lower and upper beams to deliver the signal, or in modern motorcycles, a high beam flasher switch is also featured to make high beam flashes. Thus a rider can simply make emergency flashes by pushing the dedicated switch.

Integrated DRL – Daytime Running Light

Daytime running lights, therefore, DRL is now an integrated safety feature in modern motorcycles. Most commonly it comes peered with the headlamp assembly whereas very few models come with separated DRL on the front panel, especially on scooters. But DRL is considered the integrated part of the headlamp.

DRL on the vehicles actually featured to sharply illuminate all the time, especially in broad daylight when the headlamp commonly remains shut off. DRL actually makes the vehicle visible to the upcoming vehicle drivers on the road. Thus the motor driver can be confirmed, act accordingly, and stay within a safer limit on the road. Thus DRL helps to ensure safety on the roads.

AHO – Automatic Headlamp On

Like the motorcycle DRL system AHO, therefore, the Automatic Headlamp On (up on the ignition) is another safety feature that is now featured in modern motorcycles. A motorcycle is literally a small vehicle that sometimes is not much visible on long roads like highways from a distance. Hence DRL illumination is not efficiently visible in the broad daylight from a longer distance.

Thus keeping the headlamp on in such conditions can make the motorcycle more visible on the road even in the broad daylight from a distance. Thus it can ensure more safety on speedy open highways, in worst weather conditions, and also in busy traffic city rides. Hence AHO, therefore, Automatic Headlamp On is now featured on the modern motorcycle that literally increases road safety now doubt.
