Default Which Headlight For My Dio?

I am running my Honda Dio in stock condition till today. I drive on the highways at night and can feel that the light is not at adequate. I am planning to upgrade my headlight bulb to the following :

OSRAM|Consumer|Automotive Lighting|Products|Motorcycle lamps|X_RACER|index

Now here are a few questions (Pardon me because I am new to technical stuffs) :
  • Can someone tell me whether I should go for H4's or H7's?
  • What will be the cost of the H7 bulb?
  • Should any electrical changes be done on my moped?
  • I need these ones (and not halogens) as they add to the snob value of the bike at my college
  • Where in Mumbai can I get this bulb and the cost of it?

Hoping to get all my queries solved.

Regards,

Prateek

H7 is a single beam bulb . thei dio has dual beam bulbs . you will need to get the H4 bulbs . but i doubt it can handle a 55w bulb from the present 35 that is stock on it .

Have the same dilemma. Am even going to try and fit a HID system soon. Lets see if It works. But I think if you redo the wiring and pput in a relay you can have some nice bright lights,
