Own The Night. Harley-Davidson Offers 48 Brilliant LED Lighting Choices.

LED3Motorcycling on dimly lit back roads presents significant challenges, from lurking deer to poorly marked corners and inattentive drivers. According to engineers at Harley-Davidson, installing LED motorcycle lighting is the fastest, easiest way to enhance visibility for harsh night-riding conditions. Harley-Davidson offers 48 LED lighting accessories, including headlamps, auxiliary lamps, tail lamps and turn signals for almost all late-model Harley-Davidson motorcycles, and has grouped them together at Harley LED Lights


LED2That page also features graphic and video demonstrations of the dramatic difference between incandescent and Harley-Davidson LED lighting performance. The output of Harley-Davidson LED headlamps and auxiliary lamps is brighter, whiter in color, and provides a superior light pattern compared to Original Equipment incandescent lamps.

The solid-state LED lamps feature a shock- and vibration-resistant assembly that mounts into the existing light housing. Installation uses the factory headlamp wiring – no external ballast or complicated wire harness is required. The brilliant, fast-acting LED arrays used in Harley-Davidson accessory tail lamps and turn signals enhance the visibility of the motorcycle during day and night riding. Harley-Davidson LED Lights.

    With Cyril’s blessings, one may want to check out the same LED headlight from the manufacturer (JW Speaker) for substantially less than the one emblazoned with Harley Davidson on it.

    Their (tail / marker lights / turn signal ) LEDs are dim in comparison to other manufacturers such as custom dynamics and laser star. Again Harley has come up short in quality in manufacture because of their obligation to the shareholders of a publicly traded company to keep the bottom line down$$$.

    Sad really.

    HD a day late again. Why is it the company is always the last to figure things out? They seem to jump on the wagon after it is halfway down the road, and charge twice what everyone else offers the part at.

    @Industry Guy – HD being an OEM must meet DOT requirements for their lighting. Many of the aftermarket lights do not meet DOT specs. Some are downright retinal searing in their brightness (not that that’s a bad thing).

    Thanks to Boss Hawg for that link. I knew the lights were third party, but had no idea they were just rebranded.

    My comment is the same aa about a year ago, when a similar article was printed ….
    If the lights are so much better (which they are) why, in the name of all the cycle gods,
    are these kind of lights not STANDARD EQUIPMENT instead of a pricey accessory.
    Yes, I saw the price from the original manufacturer and I know Kuryakyn has similar equpiment & a upgrade of sorts but the only cycle of any kind that come from the factory with these kinds on lights is the H-D CVO Road Glide (duo set).
    So I think my well being is worth a couple of more bucks on the list price,
    instead of being taken to to cleaners to have it added on later
    (that’s a shot at ALL the OEM’s, not just H-D)
