Hey Flood - it seems to be a growing trend - a number bikes on the Dakar this year were running just LEDS lights - typically the Vision-X Solstice lights - certainly The Honda Europe bikes and Mecasystem CRFs had them...
Also the 2012 version of the JVO kit for the WR/YZF only uses a pair of the Vision-X lights side-by-side now (dropping the crappy stock WR lamp), although the JVO kit does have the provision to mount a third lamp (HID) above them within the nav tower in the same way as the original kit.
Most people seemed to be running twin LEDs (one low beam, one high and/or together presumably), and although Jorge at JVO supplies the kit with just one lamp (flood beam) as standard, there is the option to fit a second one as required... I imagine for the majority of races, you only really need the one as a daytime marker light...
