Osram Night Breaker Unlimited bulbs, £24.99
Time tested: 300 miles/2 weeks
What’s good? With winter setting in, and me still not being too experienced as a rider, I was after some brighter bulbs to give me a little more confidence in the dark on my Yamaha YZF-R125. These haven’t disappointed; they’ve made a huge difference to my night riding. Osram claim a 110% increase in beam output, and I reckon they’re not far wrong. On top of that, it’s a much nicer, whiter light. For only £25 the bulbs have made a big difference to my riding, and I’m properly impressed. With the long winter nights closing in, I reckon these are one of the best winter upgrades I could have fitted – especially considering it’s only a £25 outlay.
What’s not? Osram admits the bulb life on the Night Breaker won’t be as good as standard, but they’re still saying 800hrs, which is a lot of riding. We’ll see.
