But I didn't see anything mentioned about toggling the Headlamp on/off.

I think that feature is there for the benefit of service techs, who might need to have the run switch on for a while for diagnostics and updates. Your bike only uses 20 volts out of its 125+ volt battery pack, so there's plenty to spare for that headlight, and that tiny little headlight is not going to reduce its performance by any measurable amount. I've seen the issue discussed in theory on here several times, but have yet to hear from anyone who could prove a distance improvement by riding without a headlight. If you find a different result, I hope you survive riding invisible long enough to share it! ;-)

The Owner's Manual you reference is the first version. I found on the Vectrix website a place to download the pdf for the updated version. It looks alot more thorough and well-written.

Check out the lower right corner where you can download the pdf...
