In a race to be the best, the rivalry among the two-wheeler manufacturers has always been fierce in India. Hence, companies try to offer more features in their products to lure the buyers. As a result, even mass market products are now loaded with some features that were limited to premium vehicles a few years back and this leaves the buyer spoilt for choices. Availability of features is one of the parameters that make a customer pick a product as he is desperate to get the maximum bang for his/her buck. Among such features, LED headlamp has started getting employed in bikes and scooters even in volume centric segment in recent months. An LED headlamp claims to offer better illumination than a conventional unit and also looks better and more premium compared to the yellowish and dull beam of a conventional bulb. While earlier, LED headlamps were limited to expensive bikes only, times have changed and now you can find one even in an Activa.
