“They add visibility without dazzling; they’re noticeable without being overpowering. They’re easy to install, they’re inexpensive and they also have the ability to blend in to just about any motorcycle type or style.
The BikeVis Bullets V2 are a real improvement over the originals, making a good thing even better. These may well be the “perfect” motorcycle daytime running light or visibility light, because they work really well, they’re very small, the draw a minimum amount of current and they add a certain coolness factor to the bike”
As we mentioned in the conclusion of our BikeVis Bullets review, there’s no magic solution to motorcycle visibility, so a layered approach to safety is probably best, by carefully considering all options. But in our real-world subjective experiences and experiments with the BikeVis lights, we think they really do help.”
“We’d expect most motorcyclists can find a donzen uses for there nifty BikeVis Bullet LED accent lights from the land of the Ace Cafe. Since the weatherproof housings are only 9mm * 23mm long (.35″ x .9”), they’re tiny enough to find a home on most flat panels of fairings, though they pump out a surprisingly bright output of 60 lumens. If that isn’t enough, BikeVis’ new ‘PodMod’ Modulator has been introduced to supplement the Bullets’ conspicuity-enhancing properties.
Clearly, some creative motorcyclists are going to have some fun with these Bullets, tastefully mounting multiple pairs for additional daytime running lights, markers, accents or conspicuity where required.”
“Whilst the photographs don’t really do the brightness of these little dazzlers justice, they seem quite effective. In much the same way many of us now chose to wear high viz clothing to make us more visible – ‘just in case’, these little lights should help with visibility. They are not going to ‘blind’ other road users in to noticing us, but if they help to avoid someone pulling out in front, for an outlay of only around twenty quid, then they’re more than worth it!.
Talking to Colin at a recent club night, he has also fitted a set to his bike, along with a modulator unit; this causes the lights to glint and twinkle, supposedly making them even more noticeable! Maybe we’ll test one of these units in the future too!.”
“Additional lighting isn’t subject to MoT regulations for maximum wattage, so you can fit powerful light, but it’s imperative they are aimed correctly and don’t dazzle other road users.
If you only want to be more visible to other road users, a small LED system of running lights, such as BikeVis Bullets, can be mounted around the bike, on the side of the fairing, tucked away near an air intake or even in a wheel arch…”
