UK spec bikes are H4 bulbs.

Standard are 45/45, I have 55/60 (I think). Go for a named brand and you will be OK.

There are some new bulbs out now (cant remember the name of them) and they are like having 2 suns shining from the front of your bike!! Only slight downside is I think they are about 250!!!

HID (high intensity discharge). It's not just bulbs though. It needs a control box of some sort to control them.
