Light Solution For 2011 'Berg fe450?

I am in the process of getting my fe450 ready to tackle a longer trip this summer, Colorado to Oregon. The light on the 450 is terrible and even with the longer days, it is likely I will find myself riding at night in the mountains or desert.

I have been looking at swapping out the stock light with a Trailtech X2 or simply fabbing a mount for a Baja Designs light bar and keeping the stock light. I would prefer to stick with LED lights since they suck so much less power. Anybody out there suggest another solution?

My GPS will be wired to the bike's power and I'll likely be adding some KTM heated grips from a 990 for sucky road sections in the coastal cold, they are already in my possession.

I am particularly curious about what other Husaberg owners have done to increase their lighting capability and generally make it a little more amenable to longer distance travel...and yes, I read the article about turning the frame into an extended oil reservoir. I also have a much more comfortable seat.

Thanks for the input and advice.

put a KTM shroud on it with BD Squadron LED insert, more light than you'll need. (edit: and i did have an X2 on my DR, it sucked ass.)

i didn't have the squadron on my 570 but the shroud fit fine:
