And another person gets confused by the deceptive marketing language / poor translation from Chinese. For some reason, sellers are advertising wattage PER bulb, and TOTAL lumens output for BOTH bulbs when sold in pairs. I don't know how one wouldn't be confused by this. I was confused by this marketing BS as well. After thinking it through I realized that a sustained 6000 lumens from 2 emitters that are virtually touching, and located a couple cm from the heatsink, would be thermally improbably. Then I read the fine print and figured out what was going on. Others have tested these bulbs, and if I recall correctly, they are actually producing around 5000 lumens per bulb.
Many headlights are poorly designed. Typically because the lighting engineers were told to make a headlight that the stylists thought looked good. The gen2 V650 headlight seems to have been designed by engineers. It may not look pretty, but it works very well. And that isn't just my biased personal opinion, others have complemented the function of this headlight. Though few have liked the appearance of the headlight.
2011 V650 in Black, well accessorized.
