9 Best Motorcycle Fog Lights

Hey There! 👋 Why do you need motorcycle fog lights? There are usually 3 reasons:

1) Make yourself more visible to other drivers.
Being easier to notice by other road participants increases your overall road presence and passive safety

2) Make your bike look bigger and cooler.
Auxiliary lights make your bike appear bigger in the rear-view mirrors of other drivers and also tap into Human subconscious minds, where bigger objects are associated with increased danger and therefore receive more attention from other road participants (the brain cascade effect).

3) Light up the road and roadsides better during the night rides.
Better illumination of the road in dark conditions, allows you to see obstacles, including animals that may unexpectedly jump onto the road, earlier and gives you more time to react.

I evaluated motorcycle fog lights based on the following criteria so you can make an informed decision – which ones are best for your particular use case:

  • Power
  • Focused beam
  • Lumens
  • E-Marking (road legal in Europe)
  • Waterproof
  • Color Temperature
  • LED

So, let’s shed some light on the best motorcycle fog lights available to help you ride safer and smarter!

Additionally, consider these crash bar mounts for reliable fog light fixation so they stay in specific positions and don’t wiggle out under vibrations and wind.


Best Overall

#1 Givi

Power: 14W each
Focused Beam:
✅ Yes
Lumens: Unknown
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
✅ Yes
Waterproof:
✅ Yes (IP68 rating)
Color Temperature: Unknown
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: Crashbar only (21-25mm diameter)


Benefits & Features

✅ Focused light beam. They focus light in a horizontally wide and vertically-narrow pattern. Excellent for lighting up roadsides. I used these on my Africa Twin and adjusted them to assist the low beam. This way I actually never really needed to use a high beam when riding at night.

Also, I really like how they made my Africa Twin appear gigantic in the car’s rearview mirrors. I definitely had more road presence after installing these and I noticed that cars give me way more often.

✅ Does not blind oncoming traffic drivers. The issue with blinding oncoming drivers is that it makes it difficult for humans to accurately measure the distance to an object. The blinding effect can create an illusion that the object is farther away than it actually is.

As a result, drivers may mistakenly perceive an object with its high beams on as being further away, such as a car with its headlights on, rather than realizing it is a motorcycle only 200 meters away. This misperception could lead to drivers attempting to overtake, resulting in a frontal collision.

So Givi will not blind oncoming drivers if installed correctly.

✅ Road Legal in Europe. In Europe, you can not simply mount any light on your motorcycle. Givi fog lights are certified for road use – meaning that they were tested and they will not blind oncoming traffic drivers if set up correctly.

⚠️ Mounts are tricky to adjust, the mount rotation is not intuitive so it may take 20 minutes to figure it out.

❌ Expensive, these are the most expensive fog lights on this list. If you plan to sell your bike, take them off and install on your next bike. 🤑


Second Best

#2 LEDUR

Power: 20W each
Focused Beam:
✅ Yes
Lumens:
4000lm
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
❌ No
Waterproof:
✅ Yes (IP68 rating)
Color Temperature: 6500K
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: Crashbar


Benefits & Features

✅ Come with crash bar mounts. Easy installation without needing to invent custom attachments for your specific bike.

✅ Comes with a protective cover that will protect the lens from flying rocks if you are riding behind your riding buddy on a gravel road.

⚠️ While the lights are waterproof – the switch is not. Make sure it is installed somewhere it does not get direct water in the rain. Like behind a windshield where it rarely gets wet at speeds.


Best For Money

#3 Adzoon + Rugged Ridge Mount

Power: 13W each
Focused Beam:
✅ Yes
Lumens: 2700lm
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
⚠️ No
Waterproof:
✅ Yes (IP67 rating)
Color Temperature: 6000k
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: ⚠️ Bolt-on mount


Benefits & Features

✅ Focused beam that is possible to adjust to being used on public roads at night without blinding other roar participants.

✅ Good power for motorcycles and honest information in the description. 27W in total will not damage your motorcycle’s generator, especially if used with other electric devices like heated grips.

other China-based manufacturers often lie about real power output to make their product appear better than it really is. I have to give credit to this seller for mentioning realistic numbers.


Best Looking

#4 Kairiyard + Mounting Brackets

Power: 30 W each
Focused Beam:
⚠️ No
Lumens: 6000lm
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
❌ No
Waterproof:
✅ Yes (IP67 rating)
Color Temperature:
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: ⚠️ Bolt-on mount


Benefits & Features

✅ HAs low and high beam settings. In low mode, only the round outer side light is on – great to use as a day running light to get more road presence. Turn on the high beam in the center if you actually want to light up the road ahead.

⚠️ Beam is not focused so they will always blind other road users at night, even in the low-beam setting. Great for day riding though when it is very hard to blind someone.


Most Adventure Looking

#5 LASFIT + Mounting Brackets

Power: 18W each
Focused Beam:
✅ Yes
Lumens: 1233
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
❌ No
Waterproof:
✅ Yes, IP67 rating
Color Temperature: 3772K
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: ⚠️ Bolt-on mount


Benefits & Features

✅ Have 4 versions with different inside reflectors. I recommend choosing the Narrow version – this way there is a lesser chance of blinding other drivers and it will be easier to adjust the light height and horizontal direction.

✅ Look really adventurous and in my opinion, these are the best looking. I believe that William Gloege had similar-looking lights installed on his Africa Twin.

⚠️ The light color is a bit greenish rather than yellow. So be aware of that before choosing these fog lights.


Second Best For Money

#6 Zmoon + Mounting Brackets

Power: 13W each (they lied about 60W)
Focused Beam:
✅ Yes
Lumens: Unknown
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
❌ No
Waterproof:
⚠️ Low (IP65 rating)
Color Temperature: 6000 Kelvin
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: ⚠️ Bolt-on


Benefits & Features

✅ Can be switched freely between white and yellow colors. The handlebar switch has 2 positions that allow you to turn on either white or yellow light. For example, if there is a fog or rain, turn the yellow light on as it will go through the fog further lighting up the road. Otherwise, use white light.

✅ Easy to adjust after they are installed. Unlike Givi, these have 2 pivot points – one for horizontal adjustment and 1 for vertical so it is a lot easier to adjust beam direction.

⚠️ There is no crash bar mount, you will have to find where to bolt them in or drill a hole. I recommend getting crash bar mounting brackets but check for diameter first so they would fit your crash bars. It is better to drill and ruin aftermarket brackets, rather than your bike’s stock parts.

⚠️ Not Waterproof. IP65 rating stands for water-resistant, not waterproof. They can be used in rain, however, they can not be submerged under water. Note, that riding in heavy rain may damage these. They can be used in rain, just note that it will eventually affect their longevity.


Most Powerful

#7 Auxbeam + Mounting Brackets

Power: 45W each
Focused Beam:
⚠️ No
Lumens: 9000lm
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
❌ No
Waterproof:
✅ Yes (IP68 rating)
Color Temperature: 6500K
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: ⚠️ Bolt-on mount


Benefits & Features

✅ Super powerful, I wouldn’t use these on the road. But they are nice for riding in the forest or on a gravel road at night when there is little chance of other vehicles and high chance of animals crossing the road.

⚠️ Total 90W may be too much for your motorcycle’s generator and it may significantly reduce its longevity. Especially, if you use a lot of other accessories like heated grips, heated gear, phone chargers, etc simultaneously. I recommend choosing fog lights with below 30 Watt power draw.


Worth Mentioning But Not Recommended

#8 HOUSE TUNING + Mounting Brackets

Power: 20W each
Focused Beam:
⚠️ No
Lumens: Unknown
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
⚠️ No
Waterproof:
⚠️ No
Color Temperature: Unknown
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: ⚠️ Bolt-on mount


Benefits & Features

⚠️ Poor for the price, better choose something else.

⚠️ Front lens is low-quality plastic that will get scratches from road dust and debris with time.

⚠️ Not focused light, better not to use them on road in dark. But they are good for lighting up low-traffic roads or forest roads.

❌ Not waterproof. Water-resistant at best. If you ride in the rain a lot these won’t last long and will start fogging up inside and eventually break.


Worth Mentioning

#9 OB

Power: 30W each
Focused Beam:
⚠️ No
Lumens: Unknown
E-Marking (Road Legal in Europe):
⚠️ No
Waterproof:
✅ Yes (IP67 rating)
Color Temperature: 7000K
LED
: ✅ Yes
Mount: Crashbar


Benefits & Features

⚠️ Little horizontal adjustment. Basically, the light direction will depend on the angle of your crash bars. It will be hard to point these ahead unless your crash bar has a perpendicular spot to your movement direction where you could install these.

❌ Has a 360° light pattern which is not usable on roads with other drivers. Can be used in the forest to light up your campground or smth, otherwise don’t use these.
