Yes. The stock incandescent bulb has two filaments. You are correct.
And they do burn some wattage.
But the LED tail/brake light uses the same bulbs for both purposes.
And even with the brake on, the LED burns less than the stock tail light alone.
And I prefer to stop and stay at red lights and be gawked at by all the people jealous of my KLR. It's a babe magnet.
