As a comparison, the LEDs in the 2013 are 24W (they mention they use 2A) and more of a point source designed for the reflector.I would be seriosly amazed if those bulbs have anything like the output of my 55w H11 Osram Nightbreaker PLUS bulbs..
The reflectors are designed for a halogen bulb.. I can see doing a xenon conversion, but LEDs? Im sceptical, but i hope to see your pics! I really like LEDs as I have two dedicated 8w auxillary cree based DRLs on mine..

16W led is NOT equal to 16W halogeenAre you really going to put in 16 Watt headlights???
The sale website does not mention the number of lumens these bulbs put out which is a better measure of light output than the quote power consumption. Probably fine if you don't ride at night.
Let us know how they go.
Huh? Standard halogen is 55W in our Multistrada's and most cars and bikes. But the biggest difference with this bulb is the lens. The lens will focus the light, thus giving much more useful light on the road. And your right Watt means nothing in light output, it's lumens. It's a pitty they don't mention that on the products. I will try to make a good comparison with a second Multistrada with halogen lights beside the led. And I will try to measure it, when I get my hands on a light meter.aschemkes,
I know, that is what I said.
The lumens is the light output. The wattage is the power draw. LEDs are more efficient and give more lumens per watt than an incandescent/halogen bulb.
If this is right, a 16W LED will be equivalent to about a 65Watt halogen. I would not use this low power in either high beam or low beam.
Likewise mine has 2 in, one for demo and one for the showroom. So the demo one might be available for a ride the first week of Jan (they have to wait to register it in the new year). I'll take a look but might hold of taking a spin as it might frustrate me even more with mine being late. But I will try to check out the lights too.Not yet but my dealer called today and he just received two of his first three 2013's.....guess who's didn't show yet? He said to drop on in and check them out next week, which I'll probably do.
