Twisted Throttle is bring out some very small, and bright, LED driving lights. You could almost put them anywhere on your Versys.

I looked at them at a show in NY and they are very nice...and...very reasonable.

Give them a call.

I do NOT work for them but have purchased "lots" of stuff from them over the years. Very good service.

LEDs are bright... but they don't put out light at a distance. meaning I think these lights would be better to draw attention to you from others, rather than you as the rider using them to see at a farther distance ahead of you.

Though... I could be wrong. As I have not personally used LED driving lights myself.

new LED technology can emit light at long distance, but incandescent ( tungsten ) lights will illuminate more, of course, at higher wattage. If you really need more light and have the extra amps, go for the classic hot light. Or put some HID's replacement bulbs and turn the signal into running lights to be seen.

bright!

The guys at Twisted Throttle said that they were "almost" as bright as hid's without the power draw. The price was very cheap also...with a life time warranty. Can't beat that!!

Anybody interested in fabricating a Versys mount plate for the Clearwater lights that would work with the V? I would love to put a set of the red ones on my V.

anyone wanna tell me what the difference's are between the "flood," "spot," and "euro" designs?

I mean ok, flood and spot are obvious, what's the euro? what are you guys going with? is anyone better for a particular situation? say off roading, or touring, or city riding?

Very cool lights, still overpriced, you can get that amount of light from a $30 dollar pep boys set, but I understand the coolness factor and technology advantage, also the current draw is tons less.
