Modern battery and LED technology means that lights today are considerably lighter and less bulky than their predecessors. However, you can still expect the high end lights to weigh in the region of 200g to 300g.

Lights with an external battery back that can be strapped to the frame of the bike generally weigh more than those with integrated lights, so there can be a trade off between longer battery life and greater weight.
