Acumen new HID lighting system
Acumen have released a new HID (High Intensity Discharge) system, built specifically for motorcycles.
It's 35W bulb uses the same technology as floodlights and is claimed to be twice as powerful as 60W halogen bulbs. The HID lights are rated at 6000K, which is similar to a camera flash bulb.
The light systems need a massive electrical charge to start running, so a "Ballast" is needed. The Ballast is light and compact and can fit easily in to a modern motorcycle.
There are five kits available to fit most popular types of bulb found on modern motorcycles. They are 9005, H1, H3 and H7, which retail for £154.99 and H4 at £175.00.
