As of now, I can say the width and length of the beam is wide and far and I'm kinda concerned it'll blind oncoming vehicles.
Adi : Are these the ones? These are also 20W LEDs. How much did you buy them for and where in Bangalore? Will he ship to Hyd?

As you can see, light throw and spread is very impressive

Please confirm?

Hi Avi,

The ones I picked up look something like this, although the below image was sourced off the net and is not the exact product image. I shall post pics of what I have on the bike this evening. I paid 9600 for a pair and you can buy a single unit if you wish. There are other cheaper options in the market (independent shops on facebook, aliexpress, etc).

These are sold by A2ZMotorcycleSuperstore but weird that they don't have this exact model on their website or their social media pages. The lights have a 12 month warranty and from what i have heard from fellow riders, the service support for replacement or repairs is excellent.

I got them from Biking Spirit. You can call them and check if they can ship to HYD or I can pick them up for you; you can collect it when you're here next.

Mobike, Can you tell where you sourced them? Looks small and very powerful with healthy spread. Will be useful if you could share the info

Thanks. I'm looking at something that I can fit at the earliest. 9.6K puts them in the league of Redlineplus (www.redlineplus.com). Are they as good?

Please share real pictures of the LED's and real time range and spread of them in darkness

If nothing works, you can pick it up and I can collect it in office

These pictures were shared by Kawasaki guy who fixed my topcase carrier. It is apparently Taiwanese made and cost 6K for a pair including mounting hardware

They have fixed it on a few Tigers and innumerable bullets and all seemed to be really happy with it

Problem is it's currently out of stock and might take 2-4 weeks to source them. Hence, exploring other options

A couple of weeks ago, our in house magician offered to play some tricks on my bonnie.

I was elated to no end. Rudra da, the magician, our friendly mod, Vidyut (vid6639) and I headed towards Kolar for a photoshoot. Rudra had shot a magnificent image of my Ninja on the second day of the purchase and I was keen on a repeat performance this time on the bonnie.

Let the pics do the talking.

Some pics from my phone:

Thank you sir. And I don't mind at all

We should meet up sometime. Been a fan of your threads, esp. the Bonnie one.

Just read through your thread. Congrats on a great bike and happy riding. I too rode a Ninja 250 before selling off recently. Yes it did hurt to see her go and iam you will hurt too (those are lovely bikes)... but at least you have this beauty to keep you happy. Cheers!

p.s. the New Street Twin has my attention too.

Been ages since I visited the forum, thanks to work and work related travel, which has kept me super busy.

The Bonnie stands at 13,xxx kms and to keep her in shape, I ride to work in case I am unable to squeeze in any leisure rides.

Here are a few pics from my last update. The Ninja in the pic belongs to a friend.

Here is a pic of me with my brand new helmet - the HJC RPHA10. The helmet fit and finish is top notch and a lot lighter compared to my Sparx. The helmet is significantly quieter than my Sparx. The ear pockets are deep enough for BT speakers without causing any pain to the external ear. I have not been able to test the helmet at speeds over 100kph and I am overall very happy with my purchase. The helmet is DOT and SNELL rated.

You're so obsessed with that...

I'm going to paint it black now.

Hope you are not serious about it ? If serious - no paint please put a sticker - may be a small skull like "Phantom's Signature"
