^^ I'm not sure about countries that ride on the right side of the road, but in Australia we ride on the left also. Looking at the beam on mine from the stock halogen headlight and since I've changed the globe to a HID, there is no cutoff to the right side like there is with car headlights. The beam just goes straight out on the centre line of the bike.

I don't know whether it is done like this because you can position yourself on either side of the lane, I'm also not sure if the cbr250 is like this because it only has the single headlight, but the easiest way to check would be to aim it at a wall so you can see if there is any cut off. Just straddle the bike with both feet on the ground and you'll see straight away if there is any beam cut off.

I should also say I'm interested in this too as after almost 10 years and 23000km or so of running a HID in the stock headlight, it isn't looking very good on the reflector inside the headlight...

Just note, in India riders ride on the left side of the road, so the standard of the main lamp is a standard that is suitable for riding on the left side. For countries where the riding is on the right side it will not fit, it will dazzle even in low beam!
I never heard that motorcycle headlights are aimed to the left or right depending on the country. The standard headlight on my CBR250R points straight ahead.

Maybe @Adithya Pillai can tell us how his LED headlight is aimed.

@Stichill I agree with what you just said. The light is more focused in the centre and not left/right. The highbeam is projected in the centre of the road without interfering with the oncoming traffic.

In order to wire it up, I had to open up the socket on the headlight unit (it's a screw Type socket). After doing that there is a small modification you have to do. Cut the existing 4 wires and re-wire them according to a follow-up post I will do later. The problem being the main connector that connects to the headlight unit is hard-wired in that new wiring harness (CBR250r 2018). To workaround that I cut up a Computer Power Supply PCIe power connector and used that to connect to the socket and put silicone sealant to seal from dust and water.
Thanks a lot for this info

@Tamir what you're saying is mostly found in cars. Bike mostly have the spread even. In my hedlight the visibility is more focused in the centre not like cars
It mostly found in cars, in every standard headlight separately, left and right, and it mostly found in motorcycles. The component responsible for the "hidden lighting area"(to NOT dazzle) is the reflector, which has a separate standard for riding on the right side of the road, and another standard for riding on the left side of the road. You can notice this in complete darkness when illuminated with road lights, not the high bim. The high bim is NOT "hidden" (is dazzling).
I'm not specifically familiar with the headlight you describe. Your claim is true about a certain headlight, I do not come to contradict what you claim, but it's probably by standard? (because it's officially manufactured by Honda).

Nope, no way you can buy it online. I will share the part number soon, maybe you can try to convince your honda dealer to import it for you or something? By the looks of the package, the LED is made in INDIA.
Hello, thank you very much for replying!

Surely if you're able to get the information regarding part code, that'd be really helpful for everyone here! thank you in advance.
I'll try to contact my local main dealers to see whether they're able to import it from India or not, because ordinarily they import parts from Thailand in regular basis for their imported bikes as well.

This is true for motorcycles that have a twin headlight setup If I'm not wrong.

not sure what you mean by part code? I already updated the thread name with the "Part Number"

To the best of my knowledge this is true for all headlights "low beam", if there is a separation of the headlights: One for low beam, and the other for "high beam", then the restriction exists only on the "low beam".

Oh I'm really sorry I didn't notice that, surely I was ignorant enough how the forum system works. Thank you very much sir for reminding me, I'll try to get it later on!
