There was some research sometime ago that said if the front of the bike, using lights, resembled a face people were found to see them far sooner than bikes that did not, please do not ask me to find the research article!

Oh I love research!

This is where it is mentioned and lead to the wide-spread dissemination of the so called "face pattern" lighting (Item 7)
https://www.rideapart.com/articles/254402/safety-8-ways-to-make-your-motorcycle-more-visible/

This is what rideapart references
https://world.honda.com/ASV/motorcycle/   

This is what Honda references:
"Enhancement of Motorcycle Conspicuity Using Brain Activities Induced by the Facial Image Stimuli Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.17 No.2"
https://www.hondarandd.jp/point.php?pid=356&lang=en

It is a very interesting paper - I registered (registration is free of charge) and downloaded the pdf. I recommend doing so if you are interested in these types of research :-)
