Saw them on a trumpet 800 that was over for the MGP, they were bright and looked pretty effective.

I like them.....

The joke is that in Italy are very rare and I never saw them in a shop or on a bike....

As a caveman approach, I've been riveting yellow LED arrays to my hand guards for years. IMHO, the elevated and farther distanced lighting gets the cage driver's attention a bit better.

Got this feedback from the supplier, not a fan of the design not being a full hand guard-

Those are the Vision handguards. We did bring a set in as a sample over a
year ago and decided not to stock them. The adjustable LED bulb - at least
on the set we received - seemed to adjust too easily so that if you happened
to nudge the back of the bulb with your hand the beam could end up pointing
left, right, up or down. I've attached a picture of the back of the
handguards. Have you read good reviews on these?

I haven't seen any reviews on them at all that is what i brought this thread back up. I am glad that you get that response because i didn't know that it was a fully attaching handguard. To me i also thought that the LED looked kinda flimsy just from the videos. I think that i will pass on these now. Thanks for the help.

Got another reply about my questions so I thought I would post for your info, MX1 has been great in replying to emails.

These are only intended to provide additional lighting, not meant to be a
driving light. These are not DOT approved, if that's important to you. They
are pretty bright with only 8 watt draw (4 watts per side). I did some
research on the internet and found some forum posts from people that have
them on their bike, this is just 1 post I found:

If you were interested we could bring a set in for you, probably about 7-10
business days. Canadian MSRP is $189.
