    Clearwater LED has added a mount for that works on the Multistrada, Hyperstrada and Hypermotard (821 & 939). I added the Darla LED lights to my Hyperstrada. Location provides for use of the small Darla LEDs or one could add the huge lumen output bigger lights too.

    Simple mount that uses existing fork bolts:

    Works well for me making the bike much more conspicuous to oncoming traffic.

    The difference in how oncoming traffic reacts to me is stunning. Cars wait before turning left, and seem to get out of the left lane better too.

    For night riding, I'd select the bigger Krista or Erica LED lights.

    You can see how the Darla LED lights tuck in tight next to the fork clamps, making them disappear so as to not take away from the look of the bike. It is a Ducati, so looks are important.

    I did something similar to my Enduro when I got it. I tossed the Sevinas on though. This is my second set of em, first set is on my '12 MTS. AMAZING lights from a really good company!

    Since I don't ride at night anymore, the little Darla LED lights are perfect for the purpose intended. To become far more conspicuous to traffic without changing the look of the bike. Small, reliable and bright.

    These LEDs have been making me safer for over 60,000 miles.

    Almost a neon yellow. Very conspicuous.
