On the other hand. LED is an "unknown" right now. We don't know the real longevity of it (supposedly it's huge).
90% of the bikes sold here have the LED. All the demo's and showroom models from the dealers are equiped with it.
They are trying to make it a trademark thing.
And the light is way better compared to old 800.
