It is too bright close to the bike, unless you aim too high (see following beamshots) but then you blind oncoming traffic. This makes it already: Not recommended.

Axa Blueline 30: Aimed too high, this is how people will tend to aim it because of the bad/blurry cutoff. Not good!


The lamps overexposes the near field, it is hard to aim properly because the cutoff is not very good (needs to be sharper and/or wider with not much varying brightness at the same height on wallshot).


Cheap and looks nice, but problematic in aiming, this sort of problem should be actually taken care of by the approval procedure (StVZO/TA) of lamps and then not allowed...
