    At first look, it is hard to tell if they worked the 16' headlight based on the exact same base than previous years...there may be some slight, subtil differences like mounting point, etc...
    Some folks have to test it!

    When you are dead, you don't even know you are dead.
    It's only pain for others.
    Same thing when you are stupid !


    2brnut2b, That's the question !

    Before you get too excited about the new headlight & reflector, you'd better check prices. I'd guess you'll pay a King's ransom for the 2016 headlight.

    If it fits, I am ready to spend the money.
    Who will test it? :-)

    I have not seen the 2016 NC700X parts pricing yet.

    As a point of reference in US dollars, the headlight assembly for the first generation NC700X lists for $348.22. On the other hand, the OEM headlight for the NC700JD (NM4 Vultus), which I believe is an LED, lists for $1009.78. In the USA, you can get discounts up to 35% on parts, but that'll give you an idea what to expect. My guess is you're looking at well over 500 USD to change out the headlight, even if it fits.

    Who will test it? You're the man!

    It looks like that you have to replace the whole fairing... It will be cheaper to sell your older NC and purchase the new one.

    I also guess that the electronics will be different (smaller generator and different R/R)...

    I actually prefer the original headlight which was one reason I bought mine.
    No sour grapes there.

    You can get an LED bulb from Cycle Gear for $59, I think that was the price. Work real good really lights up the hwy.
