General Information / Left Handlebar Switches / Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Switch (if fitted)

When the ignition is switched ON and the daytime running lights switch is set to DRL mode, the daytime running lights warning light will illuminate.

The daytime running lights and low beam headlights are operated manually using the DRL switch. Press the top of the switch for DRL mode, and the bottom of the switch for low beam headlight mode.


Do not ride for longer than necessary in poor ambient light conditions with the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) in use.

Riding with the daytime running lights when dark, in tunnels or where poor ambient light is apparent may reduce the riders vision or dazzle other road users.

Dazzling other road users or reduced vision in low ambient light levels may result in loss of motorcycle control and an accident.


During daylight hours the daytime running lights improve the motorcycles visibility to other road users.

Low beam headlights must be used in any other conditions unless the road conditions allow for high beam headlights to be used.
