    To the best of my knowledge, bi-xenons are not a viable option on the 11S.
    They are viable on almost anything with a little work.

    Since the 11S already has a projector beam, it is relatively easy to replace.

    I just had to make an adapter plate for the Duck when I did it.

    I am hoping they are for the RT as well. I just picked up a set and hope to install them when I come up for air. The ones I got only come in pairs so I have spare parts as a bonus.

In ~90,000 miles I have replaced not one item in the system, and have an incredible amount of light output (approx. 200 Wts per bulb, drawing only 35 wts current).
    The R11S lens is ideally suited for HID bulbs (not all are), and seems to actually be designed to run HIDs.
    I think they're running about $280 for a set of hi & lo right now.

    Just do it, you will be ecstatically happy that you did so. Certainly one of the best items I've bought for my bike.
    I bought those same lights about 9 years through a group buy on Pelican Parts,still work fine and whoever said HID hi-beams don't work can stand in front of me but wear your shades.
    I got a 4300k low and a 5000k high and they are killer.
