So much goes into a quality LED that the majority don't realize it until they have spent twice as much, after a failure.
Thermal management is the biggest area where the Chinese lights fail to meet the grade of quality.
Perhaps. For the price, I am going to try a pair of these as auxiliary lights on mine 990.

To suppliment the HID On my 450, I am adding one flood and one spot of these lights.

I will report back this spring on how well they work. Yes, I am getting what I pay for. However, for $225 I am setting up two different bikes with supplementary dual LED lights with respectable lumen output. I do not plan on doing a lot of night riding, or racing the Baja 1000, so I expect these lights to be adequate for what I need.
