Being able to see at night is critical to me, especially with all the deer we have here in Virginia, that love nothing more than to attempt suicide with every motorcycle coming towards them. I have my BMW GS hugely outfitted with lights (Hella HID's and Motolights) and when coming over to the '11 KTM 990 Adventure found the stock USA headlight a pitiful joke. It reminds me of a MagLight 3-cell flashlight with the batteries about half dead. Upgrade Time. So I read here that the Euro Headlight for the 990 is the hot licks. Order one from Black Dog Cycle Works and swap it out with the USA DOT model. I also bought a pair of RIGID Industries Dually D2 LED lamps, which I particularly liked because of the very low wattage draw. The KTM doesn't have the big alternator that the BMW is built with, so managing watts and amps is a concern. Tonight was my first test ride on dark country back roads. Factory Euro Headlight: OK, this is better than the USA one, but not by any great shakes. Beam throw and cutoffs are superior, and I'd say there is probably a 20 % to 25% overall improvement in lighting. I will retrofit it with an HID Conversion shortly, at least on the low beam. So its a decent upgrade, but not anything to make you say its a 'gotta have it". Rigid Dually D2's: Hit the "ON" switch and these about blew me off the bike. No warm up like HID's just two pure white thunderbolts of light lasering everything in front of you. I have nicknamed them "The Light of doG". I used to think my Hella HID's on the BMW were bright. HA! Best thing is even in the 'spot' configuration, these throw enough light into the left and right embankments that you can easily see 20' to 30' on either side of the road to eyeball varmints coming out of the woods, You want a set of hugely bright, tough, durable auxiliary lights that won't put your charging system on your knees - buy these. I have them crash-bar mounted, but there are several ways to install them and they look funky, too.
