MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Harley’s Genuine Motor Parts division has been apparently bottling the sun itself to power its latest accessory options.

First, use the sun’s rays to blast through the night with the Daymaker LED Headlamp. Now available in a 5.75-inch diameter to fit Sportster, Dyna and Softail models, this LED headlamp features two “D” shaped optical lenses, a single low-beam lens, and three high-beam lenses.

The low-beam pattern remains on at all times, and the switchable high beam adds significant punch down the middle of the road. The LED light quality closely mimics that of natural daylight to further enhance visibility, and its bright-white color is very conspicuous in traffic.

All Harley-Davidson LED products are engineered to be street-legal, to integrate with the OEM electrical system, and to offer easy plug-and-play installation. The Daymaker headlight assembly comes in a fetching chrome, of course, and retails for $399.95.

And on the other side of things, H-D is using the sun’s warmth to plow through monsoons and chilly mornings.

Flip a switch and warm up with the Sun Ray Heated Seat. Designed for the 2014 Rushmore Touring and Trike motorcycle models, this seat is suitable for cool-weather riding in any season.

The Sun Ray heated seat features dual-zone rider and passenger positions with separate high/low/off toggle heat controls for personal comfort selection.

The one-piece seat with integrated heat pad and control system is simple to install, and the heating element is switched on and off with the ignition to avoid draining the battery. This seat’s styling complements the Touring range, and it can be fitted with optional Rider Backrest Kits. The Sun Ray seat kit retails for $799.95.
