Seeing and being seen: the life assurance for motorcyclists.

Osram Night Racer and Osram X-Racer, the new high-performance motorcycle bulb range from Osram has opened up a new dimension for powerful lighting on two wheels. Osram Night Racer is claimed to put more light on the road and create a longer beam than conventional bulbs. Osram X-Racer combines design and function - its bluish-white light gives it an impressive xenon look and picks up contrasts better than standard halogen bulbs.

More light on the road. 
Osram Night Racer is a new high-performance lamp for motorcycles, whose particularly compact filament produces up to 90% more light on the road and creates a beam up to 35 metres longer than a standard halogen bulb. With Osram Night Racer, obstacles can be clearly identified at distance. Even when travelling at high speeds, riders have more time to respond. The patented blue ring coating reduces glare, such as in fog. Plus it helps to focus the beam better on the road ahead. The bulb's light is up to 10% whiter and more natural, so reduces eyestrain.

Xenon look plus safety. 
Osram X-Racer makes a brilliant impression. Its 4,000 Kelvin colour temperature and blue coating of the entire bulb produce a bluish-white light similar to daylight and to a xenon lamp. Besides its unusual looks, Osram's X-Racer also provides greater safety on the road. Its different coloured light is particularly noticeable. It means other road users can identify motorcyclists quickly, thereby reducing the risk of accidents.

Cool packs.
In order to emphasise its affinity with bikes, The Osram range of motorcycle bulbs are sold in a compact box in the shape of a biker's helmet, which makes a perfect spare bulb container. In countries that require not only lights on in daylight, but also a spare lamp to be carried, it is the ideal bike accessory. Not only the box's helmet shape, but co-branding it with Schuberth, one of the leading helmet producers, shows clearly that the new Osram pruducts are tailored to the needs of motorcyclists. They are being launched in convenient double blister packs. These contain two bulbs and a box for a spare. It means the headlight bulb can be replaced and the correct spare stowed ready for use at all times. 

The Osram Night Racer and X-Racer are ECE approved for use on public roads throughout Europe. They are available as H4 and H7 bulbs. Their distinctive marks are a silver cap and the blue-coated bulb - a real eye-catcher in any motorcycle headlight.

Availability from September 2009.
