That one comes down to weight.
In order to get a Quality long lasting LED you need good heat sinking, heat sinking is heavy.
We are looking at ways to reduce the weight of the high powered LEDs and develop the long range into a helmet mounted light, for now they are just simply to heavy for helmet mount. Its coming for sure.

They (LR) do outperform the MR16 based HIDs in every way,when you consider the reliability of the LED over the HID, its no contest. I would highly advise going with the long range LED over the mr16 HID for bike mount.
