Here is a comparison of the old 10 lux headlight and the new IXON IQ Speed 50 lux light.
Starting in 2008, the 50 lux light will be supplied for the lighting system option. I think it will make a big diffrence in the overall visibility. The new IQ technology has brought about a light revolution for sport bikes: With the accu headlight IXON IQ Speed, the biker can drive away darkness with up to 50 lux. An accu charge lasts about ten hours.
