My understanding is that, it is required by law to have the lowbeam always on (in USA).
That's why every bike, or scooter comes with headlight always on when the engine is running.
Even the Asian scooters that have the switch built in (because Asians want to preserve energy by disabling the headlight during the day), that are imported in USA, are required to have the switch disabled. So most scooter manufacturers just remove the control wire, or connector pin; which gives you a wire and a control button for under bike LED Neon lights.
Highbeam might make you more visible during the day, but may be illegal at night, to prevent others from being blinded.
