The Challenge

It was a lot easier for Motorbikes to be seen on daytime, when cars did not need to drive with lights on. They where the only ones.

Today, the Branding is mostly done with the looks of the daytime running light. To get a unique standing it is important to have a good styling as well.

For those Reasons it makes Sense to develop an upgradeable daytime running light for Motorbikes, which can be purchased in aftersales.
