Just got them "Made in China" driving lights last night for my vstrom (I'm in Hong Kong; would've loved to buy the real deals Rigid but paying 20% of the product price for shipping when it's 5 bucks for shipping from China kinda sealed the deal....)



The manufacturer advertises them as "work lights" but they're IP67 so should do ok in the rain on a bike. Doesn't come with a lot of mounting accessories but you get what you pay for I guess. Time will tell about the quality if it'll have a total nuclear meltdown; manufacturer says they use CREE 10watt x 4 LEDs.

Have you got a picture of their light pattern shining down the road?

I just took some pics outside of my apartment tonight; not the best quality from my phone camera and the fact that there's a street lamp every 5 meters in Hong Kong.

The beam pattern's not that great; they told me it's "40degrees" but I had to aim them down on the road (you can see from one of the pics it's actually tilted to light up the road 3 feet in front of the bike) because the light was so scattered it'd blind every on coming car/pedesterian. Even with them pointed down, you can still see that it lights up the tree branches in one of the picture. I'm using them more as "stay in your own damn lane" warning lights to cagers here. Asked the factory if they can give me a better lens and maybe a lens in yellow colour so I can use it as fog lights.

The bad thing I can think of right now is I have a lot more incentive NOT to drop the bike otherwise it's probably toast!

They don't sell in US right now, it was more like a local factory supplying trading companies (I wouldn't be surprised if people already buy from them and pass them off as other US brands). If you're interested I can ask them if they ship to US and how much. But I'm not sure if I'd be breaking the forum rules if I offer to help you in this regard......!

Good to be seen!

Hey, it is always good to be seen! Since you are in Hong Kong I can only assume your biggest concern is the other guy. I live where I need some additional driving light too. Thanks for the road pix!

Wowza, holy crap they're bright! Look at the way they light up the trees and that building in that pic!!! Would love to have something like those on my bike when cruising the motorways at night where there is no street lights!

Yep, I'm mostly concerned about others seeing me here in HK. I wish there were more dark open roads so I can let these babies rip lol..... I grew up in Canada and hopefully I'll get a chance yet in my life to go back and use these lights over there on some moose or deers! :thumbup:

I had feedback from advriders that I ordered the wrong pattern; 40 degree is more like a flood pattern and useful as cornering lights. Gonna ask the factory if I can get a discount if I get another 2 pairs in the right 15 or 25degree pattern. I might post up my current pairs for sale later if I swap them out :mrgreen:

Or well if anyone's interested, PM me your location and I'll ask the factory if they can ship to US/EU/wherever you are!

Looks like the best deal for these I can find is around $35 shipped. Interested to see how long they last as I am looking to get them for my Suzuki Samurai 4X4.
